This week, we are reviewing our Lección 5 grammar topics of the verb estar and expressing emotions, and when to use the verb ser or estar (both to be) – (5.1 and 5.3). We are also learning how to express what is happening “right now” with the present progressive tense (5.2).

Next week, there will be a Grammar/Vocabulary quiz on these topics. For estar and emotions and present progressive, it will be translating from English to Spanish (I am happy, she is angry and They are reading, We are scuba diving, etc.) – 5.1 and 5.2

For the ser vs. estar section, you will have to choose which form of ser or estar best completes the sentence (5.3)

Please use Quizlet to study for this test.
