¿Cómo estás? – El verbo Estar

In this post we will review:
  1. what the personal pronouns are.
  2. how to describe our mood in more detail using the verb Estar.
All this allows us to describe how we are feeling in more detail. Lets work through them in order.

1. Personal Pronouns.

The personal pronouns tell us who is ‘doing’ an action. In Spanish they are:
Yo                    –    I
Tú                    –    You
Él/Ella              –    He/She (or it)
Nosotros/as     –    We
Vosotros/as     –    You (plural)
Ellos/Ellas        –    They 
Can you remember why we have both Nosotros/Nosotras and Vosotros/Vosotras?

Remember though in Spanish that we don’t always use the Personal Pronouns, why? If you read on it might help you remember.

2. The Verb Estar

Estar is an irregular verb. Can you remember what makes a verb irregular? Click here for the answer 
The verb Estar means ‘to be’ and we use it to talk about how we are feeling or where we are. 
Yo Estoy                    –    I am
Tú Estás                    –    You are
Él/Ella Está                –    He/She is
Nosotros Estamos     –    We are
Vosotros Estáis         –      You (pl) are
Ellos/Ellas Están        –    They are
Now can you remember why we don’t always need the Personal Pronouns?

1º Curso – Definite and Indefinite Articles

Remember that in Spanish there are 4 different ways to say ‘the’ and ‘a’  where in English we only have 1. This is due to masculine/feminine and singular/plural.


Indefinite Article = ‘a’

a boy= un chico                         some boys  = unos chicos

a girl = una chica                       some girls = unas chicas


Definite Article = ‘the’

the boy = el chico                   the boys = los chicos

the girl = la chica                    the girls = las chicas
