how do we know how to choose between ser and estar? i thought ser was used for permanent things but estar is for not permanent things?is that thought true?if not how do we know which to choose?
The rule about something being permanent (ser) and non-permanent (estar) is something that you cannot follow and trust 100%, so these two important verbs need to be studied in different sections. Here is some information about ser and estar here, where you can see all the different lessons dealing with these verbs at the bottom.
I hope it helps,
