thanks! - maybe it's the reason for my being marked wrong (tried 'ora lui è fuori').
i will try it at the end of the lesson.
But a little above somebody said he had been marked wrong as well for 'ora è fuori' (?)
When do you use è and when do you sta? In Spanish, ser is for permanent characteristics and estar is for location or temporary conditions. But in Italian I can't find a consistency. Can anyone clarify?
