Sein and Stehen
What is the difference between Sein and Stehen?
1)"Stehen" can be used with a building/facility to say: "it is located" somewhere. So in this case it's similar to "sein" As in the sentence: The house is there.
Das Haus ist dort. Das Haus steht dort.
2) But with people it only means "to stand":
Der Mann steht dort. = The man is standing there.
3) "stehen" can also be used to say something is written somewhere:
Was steht drauf? = What is written there?/What does it say?
