Review of Ser and Estar

Both ser and estar mean "to be", or "is", to English speakers. However, they are used in different situations. The verb ser is used to tell time, the date, discuss possession, origin, non-changing descriptions, and career.










ser
to be, "is"
yo soy
nosotros somos
eres
vosotros sois
él, ella, Ud. es
ellos, ellas, Uds. son



On the other hand, the verb estar is used to discuss temporary conditions or location.










estar
to be, "is"
yo estoy
nosotros estamos
estás
vosotros estáis
él, ella, Ud. está
ellos, ellas, Uds. están
