  • spanish - ,

    Be sure you understand the difference between "estar" and "ser." "Estar" is location, or something temporary, while "ser" is permanent (at that moment/time). In the first sentence you need "ser."

    yo seré junior

    Talking about h eight, you again need "ser." Yo seré más alto (you are NOT female, are you?) en dos años. (don't forget the necessar tilde)

    Again, when you will be in Paris, that is location, and "estar." Yo estaré en Paris en el verano.

    If you number the sentences next time, it will be easier to correct them.


    P.S. Hopefully the following Review Sheet will post, with "copy & paste."

    5. impersonal expressions (Es posible, verdad, et c.)
