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