#ser-vs-estar

Ser vs. Estar in Spanish:

On one hand, we use the verb ser to talk about fixed things that does not change. On the other hand, there is verb estar, which is used to refer to momentaneous things.

“Mary es hermosa” means she always looks pretty.

“Mary está hermosa” means she looks pretty on that specific moment.

“John es triste” means he always feels down.

“John está triste” means he feels sad only on that specific time.
