Es is more permanent while esta is temporary like: el esta en la casa he is in the house. El es de mexico is He is from Mexico
Está is used to tell about the feelings. It's given in the "tips" section.
OK, maybe this is a bit far along for this question but, Ia am having a terrible time with the accents. Is there any place where they can be reviewed?
Actually it can boy or just child. For instance, mi hermanos could mean siblings or my brothers.
What is the difference between "muy" and "mucho"? Can't I say: El niño está mucho feliz?
Mucho means a lot and muy means very. You shouldn't always directly translate everything to English, but in this cause even in English it wouldn't make sense, the boy is much happy? You would say the boy is very happy.
Also, learn to catch cognates in Spanish. Muy looks like very and Mucho looks like much or a lot in English
In Spanish, you aren't lucky; you have luck (tener suerte) in the same way that you have fear, have heat, have cold, etc.
If you meant the expression "happy-go-lucky", according to WordReference.com that's "despreocupado" (carefree, unworried). Not quite the same as being happy, although I can see the connection.
Wait.....So before I saw, "Si, el nina esta muy feliz" and I put the girl is happy and they said it was wrong. Now, I put the kid is happy and they now they said nino is translated to boy?
la niña està muy feliz would translate as "the girl is very happy"... You forgot 'very'. Niño does mean boy and it can mean kid or child, but Duo was probably specifically looking for boy.
what is the difference between "feliz" and "felice". In later lessons Duo uses "felice".
Feliz means happy in Spanish. In Spanish, when you are referring to more than one person or something plural the adjective has to be made plural too by adding an s. For instance, they are pretty: Ellos son bonitos.
Now, in this case: What if you wanted to say they are happy? This is where Felices (not felice) comes in. There is more than one way to say happy in Spanish but let's stick with feliz. They are happy: Ellos están felices. You added an s because you are referring to something plural. The reason why z turns to es is something Im not so sure of but in my opinion it would be even weird to me if I wrote felizs.
