Hi, Why do you say: “Como es usted” instead of: “Como esta usted”!? Gracias, Arabelle
I can see this question is not related to this lesson where we talk about the verb "trabajar" (to work).
But, you can say both:
1. "¿Cómo es usted?" and 2."¿Cómo está usted?
They have different meanings. Sentence 1 with "es" means "What are you like?", as in what sort of person are you? e.g. amable, serio...; and sentence 2 with "está" means "How are you?" as in I am OK thanks.
I hope this clarified it for you.
