Hi I'm a native spanish speaker! Any doubts?
Hi, I'm a native spanish speaker, I just came into the Spanish course to see how english speakers were learning my language, to check the accuracy of Duolingo and of course, if you need it, to help you with your doubts! So... Just ask me!!!
It is like using YO, TÚ, ÉL, ELLA.... USTED is used for someone older than you or someone you respect, NOSOTROS=WE, examples: USTED ES PROFESOR, NOSOTROS SOMOS ESTUDIANTES (SOMOS ESTUDIANTES), usually it is not convenient to take out USTED, but we can skip NOSOTROS. Clear? if not tell me
When do you use le? When I first learned it, it was used with all and every él and ella but now that I'm passed that I see very little of it. They always use either lo or la which I find confusing because I believe that they mean it. If you could explain it I would appreciate it very much. Thanks.
Thanks, I'm pretty sure I understand it now. But I have one more thing. I don't really understand the difference between ser and estar. I know that ser is supposed to be things that are more permanent and estar has to do with temporary things but there are times when I don't know which to use. Like, if you wanted to say something such as, " It was my mistake", which would you use? Or something like, " The chicken is done"? Thanks for your help.
Hola! ser/estar is the verb to be, estar is to say like a place where you are, or a state in which you are (a mood maybe): Estoy en México, estoy enojado/enfadado. Soy is to say who or how you are: Soy Paula, soy rubia (can also be used to say you are happy: Soy feliz! but with estar you can also say that: Estoy feliz!) I hope it was clear if you have any other doubt tell me!
Well, as in Portuguese ser is permanent and estar is temporary, but the thing here is that we sometimes use ser for saying we're happy, but just for that, not any other mood, sometimes we say: soy feliz, but it is the only mood in which we use ser, in all the other ones we can only use estar.
Hi, ok, to say the location of a place or room, for example: The kitchen is downstairs. We use estar, even though it wouldn't be completely incorrect to use ser, it sounds a little bit weird, so, to make it easier for you, let's say estar is the only option, it is what we always use: La cocina está abajo. Remember, it is like a rule: always use estar to say where something or someone is.
Hi. I am studying Spanish. Do you know the word need? In Spanish it is necessito, or necessita and there is another option. When do I use which? This goes for the word use too. It can be uso, usar or something else, which I have forgotten. I just can`t figure out when to use which? Please reply- I would muy muy muy appreciate your help. Thanks.
