what is the difference between "eres" and "es" ??...................
Eres and es are different conjugations of the same verb, ser. The form es is used with él, ella or usted (he, she or the formal you that you would use with people who are not friends or family). The form eres is used with tú (the informal or familiar word for you that you would use with friends and family). See this conjugation chart for more details.
OH Thanks are you from Puerto Rico? Because Puerto Rico's language is Spanish
'eres' is 'are' of the second singolar person= you are 'es' is 'is' of third singolar person=she/he/it is
I just did basic course 2 and it seemed to pair es only with masculine and eres only with feminine. Are they interchangeable or do you use formal for masculine words and informal for feminine words?
thanks a lot pinkodoug .....i was quite confused but now the confusion is clear.. :-)
The simplest way to state it is that Eres and Es are both conjugations in Spanish and both mean (about) the same thing. Are/Is
Basically, use Eres when you're addressing somebody informally, you would usually pair it with the word Tu (You). Use Es when you're addressing somebody formally, you would usually pair that with the word Ustedes (You).
how about when we use it for animal or words? "eres el mejor" "eres el león" we don't use "es" in these cases because its informal too?
