Degree: BSc Anthropology (Bachelors) - Exeter University
Hi, I'm Hannah, an anthropology student at the University of Exeter. I was born and raised in Spain, and would love to share many espects of both my home language and culture.
I am very patient and enthusiastic. I have previously given conversation lessons to foreign students and friends and feel that through tutoring I am able to apply my first hand knowledge and experience towards anyone fascinated by the Spanish language.
During the sessions, you will determine the topics covered. I took the Spanish A level exams and therefore have a good understanding of the material included, however I aim to focus on each particular concern in an engaging and interesting way. I believe that a language is not merely about following a text book but also about putting your knowledge to use. The more you practice speaking a language, the more you will get out of it.
I hope the sessions are fun and enjoyable, and am sure the time given will be plenty to provide rewarding and beneficial results.
If you have any questions please send me a message or book a "Meet the tutor sessions"!
I look forward to meeting you!

Both these verbs are translates as "to be", however they are used in different circumstances.
the verb "ser" is used to express permanent states of being, such as characteristics of identity (nationality, gender, name, profession), e.g. soy española (I am Spanish), él es medico (he is a doctor)
A second use for "ser" is to tell when/where an event occurs, e.g. la fiesta es el lunes (the party is on monday), el mes que viene será invierno (next month it will be winter)
"Estar", on the other hand, has multiple uses to express temporary states:
1. It is used to express emotional, physical and mental states of being, e.g. estoy cansado (I am tired)
2. it cna be used to express location, e.g. estoy en Madrid (I am in Madrid)
3. It is also used in continuous tenses, e.g. ellos están jugando (they are playing), mañana estaremos trabajando (tomorrow we will be working)see more
