Useful Spanish vocabulary related to expressing how we feel in Spanish and how to use these Spanish adjectives with “El verbo Estar” (the verb “To be” in Spanish). In our previous Spanish lesson we looked at “El verbo Estar” and explained how it is a second version of the verb “To be”, the other being “El verbo Ser”. Here you will see some instances of when we use “Estar”: to express your current state of mind/body. For example: if you want to say that you are tired you will say “estoy cansado/a”. You wouldn’t say “soy cansado/a” in this case as “Ser” is used more for permanent, constant truths such as “soy inglés” (“I am English”). We will also practice here how to make questions in Spanish using “Estar” and you will see again how straightforward questions in Spanish are to construct.
