Hello everyone
안녕하세요 여러분
Can you tell me the grammar about 이야 in present tense ?
When have I use it & what is the diffrence between 이야 & 아요 / 어요 ?
For example :
전 학생 이에요 / 전 학생 이야

    Hello Amirali1383koohi,
    The ending "이예요" is a more or less polite form, though it in fact is considered "informal". It's how you'd talk to a stranger without being too casual or coming across as impolite.
    The ending "이야" is how you'd talk to your friend or someone you are more or less familiar/comfortable with - someone who is okay with you being casual.
    Hope this helps.
