Many students will live in houses or apartments away from campus and commute to school each day. • City parks in the Spanish-speaking world are often used to socialize, especially on Sundays when families go for afternoon strolls. Parks are often filled with various vendors and entertainers. Taking a jog through the park is not the norm for most Spanish-speaking countries. Using the verb ESTAR Two common uses of ESTAR: • expressing the location of people, objects, or places People: Mike está afuera. = Mike is outside. Objects: Mi mochilla está debajo del escritorio. = My backpack is under the desk. Places: El estadio está lejos de mi casa. = The stadium is far from my house. • expressing an action in progress Karen está cocinando la cena. = Karen is cooking dinner. Conjugating verbs expressing actions in progress (much like the -ing ending in English) -AR verbs: to express an -AR verb that is in progress, drop the -ar ending and add -ando. Mathew is practicing soccer. = Mathew está practicando el fútbol. -ER and -IR verbs: to express an -ER or -IR verb in progress, drop the -er/-ir ending and add -iendo. correr: Sasha is running in the park. = Sasha está corriendo en el parque. escribir: Terry is writing a text message. = Terry está escribiendo un mensaje de texto. For the verb leer (to read), the -iendo ending is switched for the -yendo ending so that there are not three consecutive vowels. So, Robert is reading in the library. = Roberto está leyendo en la biblioteca.
