The verb ESTAR
Cap. 2B
The verb estar
The verb estar
The -ar verbs you have used until now are called regular
verbs because they follow a regular pattern. Verbs that do
not follow a regular pattern are called irregular verbs.
The nosotros/as form is always the same as in the regular
form pattern
Estar is irregular because the yo form doesn’t follow a
regular pattern and because the forms estás, está, and
están require accent marks.
Use estar to tell how someone feels or where
someone or something is located.

emotions
