Hay vs Está/Están

Is there any …? Where is the …?

Do you get confused when asking trying to ask either of these questions? Differentiating is easy when you know why to use either Hay or Está/Están.

Fifi (Fifi, Dave & Fev) visits El Patio!

El Patio had a very special visitor. Fifi Box (Fox FM, 6-9am weekdays) was brought blindfolded into one of our Wednesday morning classes for a ‪#‎BlackoutChallenge‬. When all was revealed, she slowly came to understand that she had to give a Spanish class! What ensued was a hilarious walk on the edge, with Fifi trying to muster up ANY WORD that she knew in Spanish - and making US feel good that we were catching on! Gracias Fifi, you're welcome back for a fiesta anytime!

Visit to del Rios Winery in Anakie - Sun Nov 13, 2016

Each year El Patio books a big bus to take a group on a day trip to del Rios of Mt. Anakie, a winery established and run by Spanish family Gus and Esther del Rios. We get to taste their wines and are treated to a fabulous Spanish lunch, overseen by abuela (grandmother) Damiana. Book tickets online! (go to Shop/del Rios Winery trip)
