    untalleslie reacted to fuzzysig in R in different parts of the word cant get it right   
    I asked my friend she said Mexicans do not use the alveolar tap and pronounce it just one way similar to rolling R but shorter
    and spain and a lot of other countries have both
    heres an example I'm curious about I thought up few words that I cant figure out
    regresar has 3 Rs
    is there ever a time where there is more than one R in the word and they are pronounced differently
    R in the beginning of the word and tap the next R etc

    Me encanta todo the Gabriel Garcia Marquez! Super linda las palabras de "Cien Años de Soledad..."

    La primera cosa que yo leí de él fue "Croníca de una muerte anunciada." Mucho mas facíl para entender...

    untalleslie reacted to lingvo in Es vs Está   
    Whole books and long has been discussed about the main verbs of spanish: ser and estar. As everyone of you already know, Ser and estar can both be translated as "to be." Let's check out how curious is this thing:
    Notice that these two sentences can have different meanings both in English and spanish.
    You see there, when I'm referring to an attribute, like the color of someone or something, "es" is used. When you want to express the "state" of someone or something, you use "estar" instead. "García está vivo", "García es alto", "Garcia es moreno","García está en el baño","Garcia es tímido", "Garcia está comiendo", etc.
