Ser and estar
Ústed, él, ella es
Ellos, ustedes son
ústed, él, ella está
ellos, ustedes estan
Ser and estar both mean "to be". Estar means "to be" in a temporary sense. It comes from the Latin word for "state", so think of a temporary state. Estar is used when talking about feelings and location. Ser is used when talking about permanent states. Ser comes from the Latin word meaning "essence", so use it when talking about how something always is, or where you are from, or who someone is. Remember the rhyme: "How you feel or where you are is when you use the verb estar"
