Translation:That yellow sponge is for my friend's kitchen.
OK, here's my corny trick: I sit at my computer with my Tea close to me. EsTe, esTa, the "T" is close. All other tea is over there somewhere, out of sight (no "T" in sight). I actually remember it automatically now, but there was a time when I had to get a big slug of tea before writing "este" etc. :)
It's extremely easy. The translation would be "this - esto, esta, este", "that - eso, esa, ese". When it has a "T" (esto, esta, este) it means that the object is close to you, how close? imagine that if you can reach it with your hand is close, if you can't, than it's not close
