Question:

¿Cuándo utilizo los verbos de ser o estar? ¿Cuándo utilizo el verbo tener? When do I use the verbs ser and estar? When do I use the verb tener?

Angel H.
Answer:

Esto es difícil porque todos los verbos significan "to be" pero no puede ud. usanlos intercambiable. "Ser" es para describir identificación, origin, propiadad, material, ubicación de los eventos, o el tiempo. Usa ud. "estar" para describir ubicación de las cosas(incluyendo las personas), o tiempos progressivos. Solamente usa ud. "tener" por los expressiónes idiomáticas, como "tener hambre" o "tener la culpa". This is difficult because all of these verbs mean "to be" put you can't use them interchangeably. "Ser" is to describe identification, origin, ownership, material, location of events, or time. Use "estar" to describe location of things(including people), or progressive tenses. Only use "tener" for idiomatic expressions like "to be hungry" or "to be guilty".

Writing

Question:

What steps can I take in order to write my paper easier and faster?

Angel H.
Answer:

One issue I see frequently in students, is that they try to write their thesis statement first! Don't do that! Begin by making a layout of the things you'd like to cover in your paper (if I'm writing a paper about dogs I may do something like this: Intro/Thesis, Dog Breeds(point 1), Human's use for dogs(point 2), History of dogs(Point 3), Summary). Write the body paragraphs first! After you've finished the main part of your paper, then go back and write the intro and thesis statement. This way, you ensure you include everything in your paper! After your intro and thesis statement are both complete, work on the summary. The final paragraph should summarize what you wrote, and look very similar to your intro paragraph in content! Always make sure to leave the reader thinking about what you wrote.

Question:

Ivan Pavlov used his dog in a now-infamous study on classical conditioning. Please explain this experiment.

Angel H.
Answer:

Pavlov used a whistle in order to classical condition his dog. He set the experiment up in a way that the whistle was the stimulus, and salivation was the response. Every time Pavlov set out food for his dog, he blew the whistle, exposing his dog to the stimulus. The dog initially salivated in response to the food. After doing this for a length of time, the dog was conditioned to salivate at the sound of the whistle- even when no food was present!
