Esse hints at this and that. that is accepted, but this is not. I reported, but can someone explain the different determiners for space like this, these, that, those?

I have seen:
esse, essa, isto, ista, isso, estas, este, estes, esta, aquele

I tried to do that here: http://www.duolingo.com/#/comment/536217 but bear in mind I'm not a native speaker.

As explained in Davu's link, just always use "that" with "esse/essa" and "this" with "este/esta" :)

ista doesn't exist, and there's "aquela" too I'm brazilian and we don't know the difference either we use isso , esse,essa,aquele,aquela only .
