Hola CTL

The rule about something being permanent (ser) and non-permanent (estar) is something that you cannot follow and trust 100%, so these two important verbs need to be studied in different sections. Here is some information about ser and estar here, where you can see all the different lessons dealing with these verbs at the bottom. 

I hope it helps,
