    Hola,

    Soy maestra de espanol, pero a veces despues de ver el mismo error varias veces empiezo de pensar que talvez yo este equivocada.

    ESTA CORRECTO decir: La ciudad de Columbus, OH es conocida por su equipo de futbol americano? Verdad?

    Queria verificar que el verbo ser es apropriado y tambien el uso de "por"

    Muchas gracias....

    I think I would opt for: "La ciudad de Columbus, Ohio, se conoce por su equipo de fútbol americano." ...all depending on the surrounding context....

    If it is a question of knowing whether es or está should be used, I would suggest es.

    But I'm going to stick my neck out on this one and suggest that if the reference is to a change that has occurred such that the meaning is "has become known," perhaps está might be justified.

    A native opinion on this would be helpful.

    Cheers!
