Mi nombre is Joshua y soy de los Estados Unidos de America.

Tengo venteitres anos.

Hace dos y medio anos que estudio el espanol in la escuela.



a funny thing i just thought of:

when my teacher was showing us how verbs were in spanish and how to say "Yo hablo" "El hable" "Tu hables" "Nosotros hablomos" (like trabajar, bailar, and other "ar" verbs), the example she used was:

vomitar

we learned the words very well too! ;)

lol tell me about it. When I went over to Spain this last summer, my Friend's family was always teasing me about my poor grammar and accent. The sentences flow in english because of the idioms we english speakers use, but if i try ti translate them directly into Spanish I jsut make a fool of myself:rolleyes:

It's difficult (impossible, lol), to explain when to use 'ser' and when 'estar'... (to be)

Spanish speaking people use two verbs as to be, they are "ser" y "estar" the easiest way to use them is simple, we use ser for a permanent qualities, situationes, etc while estar is used for transitory ones, that´s why we say Estoy trabajando y no soy trabajando
Does it make sense??Hope so

It is like in English: the diference between their and there

by the way - my computer does not have spanish symbols so i am not able to speak "true" spanish.

Feb 18th, 2003, 08:11 PM
Ser: for qualities the subject will always have
E.g Es una buena persona- He´s a good person

Estar: depends on the moment
E.g Está enfermo- He/she is ill

Better now??
In situations like this I realize the hard jod teachers have!!
May God bless them :p

Es una buena pesona - wouldn't that be translated to She's a good person, instead of he? I thought if the noun ended in a it was feminine?



Okay, now let me try with SER/ESTAR

Soy de Carolina del Sur. ---->because it is a permanent trait of me, that I live in South Carolina


Estoy feliz por que penso mucho dinero ------>I am happy for the moment because I think I am rich ;)


have i learned anything? :o

Es una buena persona could be he or she, as it's not specified.

Estoy feliz porque penso mucho dinero does not make sense ;)

why do you say "que tengo" (that i have) instead of "tengo" (i have)?


and pff@me......i forgot the conjugation of the verb pensar

anabel

Yo tengo algunas manzanas (I have some apples)

Las manzanas que yo tengo ( The apples that i have)

see the difference?

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.
Feb 18th, 2003, 11:27 PM
Yes, I see the differences, but why is:

Penso tengo mucho dinero

incorrect?

Your example shows me 2 different word patterns, but not Spanish gramar rules

:fiery: i hate it when i can't figure something out!

anabel
Feb 18th, 2003, 11:38 PM
We use the "that" to unite both sentences.

Yo pienso (I think) is a sentence which makes sense by itself.
Tengo mucho dinero (I have lot of money) also makes sense by itself.

To put them together we need something, in this case it is the "that"

Yo pienso que tengo mucho dinero

MS
Feb 19th, 2003, 06:29 AM
Right ;)

Try to translate this, to see the difference between ser/estar

I'm from Spain

I'm in Spain (due to work, holidays, for example....)

Spanish can be hard!!!
OK pensar it´s a verb that is followed by conjuction que ( your that), it´s as in English love+noun or -ing

About es una buena persona the subject is omitted but looking at the verb it can only be third person singular, so it´s él o ella, but the adjetive Buena specifies about the noun Persona, that is always female gender
