When to use Ser and Estar
Perhaps one of the most common questions for Spanish teachers from their students is how to determine when to use Ser and when to use Estar. Because both verbs mean "to be", it can be a very difficult concept to fully understand. I've created the graphic below to help you understand the difference between ser and estar and when to use each verb. I dive into this topic in more detail in my Beginner Spanish course.
Let me know what you think of this graphic. I've started using more visuals like this to teach Spanish and have been getting very good feedback.
