UtterBug Background

The last item in this chapter refers to feelings.    Generally speaking, feelings are adjectives, which agree in gender and number. This implies that you need to be aware if you are talking about yourself or others in the singular and/or plural form.    As such, a question such as “Cómo estás?” (how are you?) can be replied with:

1Estoy bienI am Fine
2Estoy cansado/a(I am tired)
3Estoy feliz(I am happy)

  • Enamorado/a =In love

  • Aburrido/a =Bored
