essere vs. stare
I am very confused as to when to use each one, especially when it comes to location. I think I mainly get confused because I speak Spanish and 'essere' and 'stare' don't work the same way as 'ser' and 'estar'. Plsss helppp.
You have to be very brave to study these two languages at the same time if you're not a native speaker and you want to go anywhere beyond mere comprehension. In bocca a lupo!
The Italian usage is more similar to English - Be vs. Stay, but again it's not identical to that either.
I think part of the problem is that in some Italian regional dialects, the usage is almost identical to 'estar' and 'ser', but apparently not in standard Italian. Coming from Spanish, I struggle with this too.
