Ser Vs. Estar

“To be or not to be? That is the question.” I know very few lines from Shakespeare. But it’s no surprise to me that one of the few I do know, contains the verb “to be” twice. You see, I consider “to be” to be the mother of all verbs. I’d bet a lot of money that “to be” is the most frequently used verb in English and in Spanish. Anytime you say “is” “am” “are” “was” or “were”, you’re actually saying a conjugated form of “to be”. But here’s the thing. In Spanish, they have two different “to be’s”.

LAST CHANCE: LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP WILL BE DISCONTINUED JANUARY 15TH!

When you become a Lifetime Member, you pay one (low) price to get instant access to every course I currently offer PLUS every course I release in the future--including my newest one, Spanish for Smart People.

BUT... when I release the new course in January, I'm discontinuing the Lifetime Membership FOREVER. So this is your last chance to become a Lifetime Member!

I made the Lifetime Membership such a good deal because--back in the day--I wanted to say "thank you" -- HOOK UP -- and OVERDELIVER to everybody who supported me [relatively] early on.

Well, it's not "early on" anymore! So the Lifetime Membership is going away. Become a Lifetime Member before it does! Get all my courses (now and in the future) for one, low price.
