Esta (EH-stah) is a demonstrative pronoun replacing a feminine singular noun or a demonstrative adjective describing a feminine singular noun. Esta doesn’t have an accent, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a stressed syllable.
“está” is the 3rd. person, singular of the verb “estar”. To German: “ist”. “esta” is a pronoun, it means “that”.
ESTA is an automated system that determines eligibility for visitors to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Authorization via ESTA does not determine whether a traveler will be admitted to the United States.
Also, the form Vosotros/Vosotras has no accent since it is only one syllable. The verb estar (see table ) has accents on all forms except the form nosotros/nosotras due to the general stress rule.
¿Como estas? (How are you?) That’s a question I’m sure they’ll ask you a lot when you come to Spain.
Se should not be confused with sé (note the accent mark), which is usually the first-person present singular form of saber (“to know”). Hence sé usually means “I know”. Sé can also be the singular familiar imperative form of ser; in this case it means “You are” as a command. Erichsen, Gerald.
However, the word “se” can have three meanings. One is the reflexive pronoun, unstressed and unaccented, and the others are both verbs (from “ser” it’s a command for “to be” and from “saber” it means “I know”) and both have a written accent.
“Está” means “It is” and “están” means “They are”. We use estar to locate things/people somewhere.
como (without an accent) can be used as a verb (from comer), noun (dated word meaning a trick), adverb, conjunction, or preposition. wie (accent) can mean either interrogative/relative pronoun wie? (How are you? I don’t know how you do it.) or can be used to express disbelief where English uses what? (How?).
Está means “(it) is” and están means “they) are”. We use it to talk about the whereabouts of people or things, rather than about their existence. For example: El gato está en el jardín.
In Spanish, á is an accented letter that is pronounced the same as a. Both á and a sound like /a/. The accent indicates the stressed syllable in words with irregular stress patterns.
= Where are you? See some examples of the informal translation of Where are you? on. in Spanish: examples.
To describe how you feel or where you are, use the present indicative forms of estar – I am, you are, it is, we are, you are, they are.
The default answer is probably “Bien” (“Good”) or “Muy bien” (“Very good”). Of course, these two answers are often expanded: “Muy bien, gracias. ¿Y tú?” (“All right, thanks. How about you?”).
