Question:

What is the difference between "ser" and "estar"?

Inactive
Noelle B.
Answer:

"Ser" and "estar" are two different verbs that can usually be translated to the verb "to be" in English. The verb ser is used for things that are more permanent. We use this to describe what someone/something is like referring to their physical characteristics and personality. We also use this for facts and things that are generally true. For example: Ella es amable. Los gatos son animales. Estar is used for more temporary things. We use this to talk about emotions, weather, and temporary states. For example: Amanda está enferma. Estoy feliz!

Question:

How do you use the present perfect and past simple?

Inactive
Noelle B.
Answer:

Both the present perfect and past simple are used to talk about past actions; however, they are used in very different ways. We use the past simple when we are talking about an action that started and ended in the past. We commonly use specific points in time with the past simple. For example: I went to Paris two years ago. We're talking about a specific point. On the other hand, the present perfect is used to talk about events that happened in the past, but could still be happening in the present or are related to the present. These actions are usually more in general and don't use specific points in time. The present perfect is usually used with periods of time. For example: I've lived in Mexico for two years.

Question:

How can I improve my paraphrasing skills for essay writing?

Inactive

Answer:

Being able to paraphrase is incredibly important. In order to improve this skill, you need to be able to read and understand the main ideas of a text. It helps if you take notes as you're reading. First, identify the main idea or purpose of the writing. Then, highlight the details, examples, or evidence that support this idea. After taking notes over this information, try to summarize in your own words what you read. Make sure that you are still including the most important information when you summarize. Finally, try writing out your summary and check to make sure it has the same focus as the original writing without being too similar.
