¿estar o ser?
I get so confused trying to remember when to use the verbs 'estar' and 'ser'. When do you use 'estar', and when do you use 'ser'?
Good afternoon, the verb ''ser'' and ''estar'' is the same that ''to be''. It is used in sentences as :
Ella quiere ser una buena estudiante / she wants to be a good student
El quiere estar en la escuela / he wants to be at the school
I don't know how explain it better.
Ser = dates, occupation, time, origin, relation, characteristic
Estar = position, location, action, condition, emotion
There are many forms to use these verbs.
El no puede ser un jefe / He can't to be a boss
No quiero estar con mis padres / I don't want to be with my parents
Deberiamos estar estudiando / we should to be studying
