  10. 10. 1 2 To-be verb ‘estar’ Making small talk
  11. 11. Ser is used for permanent situations (eg: what something is ) while Estar for temporary situations (eg: what something does temporarily) Example Ser = Soy de America = I am from America (permanent) Estar = Estoy en la oficina = I am at the office (temporary) Soy and Estoy are forms of Ser and Estar when used with 'Yo' or 'I' Ser vs. Estar
  12. 12. English Spanish I am Yo estoy We are Nosotros estamos You (informal) are Tú estás You (informal, pl) are Vosotros estáis He is / She is / You (formal) are Él / Ella / Usted está They are/ You (formal, pl) are Ellos / Ellas / Ustedes están Forms of ‘Estar’
  13. 13. Examples I am at the office (Yo) estoy en la oficina I am = Yo estoy
  14. 14. Examples She is in the class Ella está en la clase She is = Ella está
  15. 15. Since we said 'la oficina' and 'la clase' we know that office and class take up feminine forms in Spanish Hence, we used the feminine form of 'the' or 'la' Grammar tip
  16. 16. Examples They are at the hospital Ellos/as están en el hospital They are = Ellos/as están
  17. 17. The = El when used with masculine nouns The = La when used with feminine nouns Hence, office (oficina) and class (clase) take up feminine forms while hospital takes up masculine form Do you remember?
  18. 18. Examples Where are you? ¿Dónde estás (tú)?
  19. 19. In all the examples we saw, we used estar as they all referred to temporary situations like being at a place Why did we use 'Estar'?

  26. 26. Making small talk How are you (informal)? ¿Cómo estás?
  27. 27. We used ‘estar’ and not ‘ser’ in the last sentence (How are you = ¿Cómo estás?) as ‘How are you’ refers to a temporary situation, meaning : how are you right now? Why did we use ‘Estar’?

  33. 33. Making small talk Can I smoke? ¿Puedo fumar?
  34. 34. Did you notice that in the last sentence, the verb ‘To smoke’ = ‘Fumar’ did not change its form? This is because we already conjugated (changed form) the verb ‘Can’ = ‘Poder (o->ue)’ I can = Puedo I can smoke = Puedo fumar Hence, Can I smoke = ¿Puedo fumar? Grammar tip
  35. 35. Making small talk Where is the toilet? ¿Dónde está el baño?
