Learning Ser vs Estar is definitely an advanced concept that even students who have been studying Spanish for several years still struggle with. These two verbs that both mean “to be” can be a great source of confusion for students who cannot quite figure out when to use which.
This catchy song will clear up so much confusion! An easy-to-remember verse that outlines when to use Ser is directly followed by all the conjugations of Ser in the present tense. The same is done for the verb Estar. The song provides examples and even tackles the nuances of very similar sentences such as the difference between “Ella es feliz” and “Ella está feliz.”
