I have been doing the Spanish course for Russian speakers for a few months now and one word I noticed is ''является''. I looked it up and it sort of means ''is'' but it also means a few other things such as to report and to appear. I do not recall seeing this one in the Russian course for English speakers. Is it a common word and when do people use it?

It is a common word! Very common. It can be also used to describe a dreem or a illusion... ( appear) like someone came into you dream or illusion... very common usage... can not think about sentence with Report meaning... let me think... as to be meanings... I would say you probably will not use it in every day conversation, but as more official (lecture, TV, speech) you will hear people replace to be with it...
