What is the word "estate"? Is it supposed to be "estarte"?
Dictation exercise B1
Thanks Larry, I was also wondering the same. Like you, I hadn't seen it in use before now.
Yes, that's it. It's very often used in sentences of this type when we use the imperative:
¡Niño, estate quieto!
Boy, stand still!
Estate pendiente de la comida, que voy a salir un momento.
Keep an eye on the food, I'm popping out just for a bit.
Viene el profesor, estaos calladitos.
The teacher is coming, be quiet.
