"She is my mom."
Translation:Ella es mi mamá.
Shouldn't this be "mia madre" or "mia mama" as opposed to "mi madre/mi mama"?
I was hoping someone else would ask about this. I don't understand this one. Possibly mí refers to possession of persons (my mother, my friend...), and mía/o refers to objects?
Yes someone please explain this??? Coming from French I am having a difficult time understanding the rules....
Could this help you guys?
La and madre are feminine, so you have to use a feminine possesive. So you would use mia not mio
what's the difference between mamá and madre? I put madre. In the dictionary madre mean's one's mother. how can that not be correct?
madre means mother, but in the English sentence, they do not use mother but mom, so you had to translate MOM
Yeah, that makes no sense...if it's acceptable to translate 'madre'-->'mom', then the inverse should be true.
To elaborate on the previous answer: The verb "ser" (soy eres es somos son) is generally used in permanent situations. For example: where someone is from, how you are related to someone, your ethnicity, etc.) whereas
The verb "eres" (estoy estas esta estamos estan) is generally used in temporary situations (how you are feeling, where you are at the moment, what you are doing at that moment)
Whereas you may only sometimes be sad, or at the park, or out shopping, your mom is always your mom.
Ella ES mi madre.
here's a hint. before a noun, it's always ser. So when you see an article or a possessive, you always use Ser. Soy una mujer. el perro es un animal
