Why do I need this book?

You may be asking yourself this question. Like the rest of us, you may have seen a couple of books floating around out there that deal with the subject of Ser versus Estar. But I have not seen many books that explain Ser and Estar in sufficient detail, that squash all doubts about their usage, and instill such a sense of confidence in the reader that by the time they complete the book he or she can proudly say, “Hey, I really get it now!”

Therefore, it is my mission to change this.

It has been my purpose to write a book that gives you exactly what you need and ends the quest for that missing information in your Spanish learning journey.

This book will take you through many uses of Ser and Estar individually, explaining just how it works, using lots of examples and providing lots of exercises to “make it stick”.

By the end of this book, I am confident that you will have mastered the usages of Ser and Estar and will be ready to go out and speak like you know what you’re doing.

Hoy hablan español alrededor de 559 millones de personas…

Spanish Street 2 600xSegún Wikipedia, se calcula que hoy hablan español alrededor de 559 millones de personas. Esta cifra incluye los hablantes de dominio nativo, los de dominio limitado y los estudiantes de español como lengua extranjera, como yo.

Así que tanta gente por el mundo está intentando aprender el español, el cual es un idioma muy bonito, y sin duda, muy útil a la vez. Para mí, el español ha sido un idioma emocionante que me ha ayudado en varias maneras durante la vida, tan es así que he tomado la decisión de escribir varios libros sobre el español. El primer libro abordará lo complicado que pueden ser los varios y distintos usos de los dos verbos que se utilizan con mucha frecuencia:

Ser y Estar

Habiendo dicho eso, con este libro explicaré con mis propias palabras lo fácil que puede ser entender y hablar el español sin preocuparse de cuándo usar los verbos SER o ESTAR.


La explicación en este libro será muy completa e incluirá una gran cantidad de oportunidades para la práctica en forma de ejercicios escritos. Espero, a través de este libro, ayudar a cualquier persona que esté luchando con este problema.

The book you need to become confident using Ser & Esar correctly!



If you’re a learner of the Spanish language, no matter what your level is, you have come across the verbs Ser and Estar, which can cause some confusion – especially if you are a native English speaker. In English, we have one way to say “To Be” – and for us, that’s sufficient. But in Spanish, it’s a whole other story, isn’t it?

Therefore, I am working on have written a new book called “Ripping Apart the Spanish Language: Ser & Estar”, which will be available on My goal is that, through this book, I will be able to help those who are struggling to understand just how to use these two fundamental Spanish verbs and improve their fluency.

UPDATE: This book was released on September 1, 2016 on Amazon in paperback and for Kindle. It can be found here:
