Hi to all!

I've got another question and can not find them in the thread, if I've not overseen. ;-(

What's the difference between e and este? (Both have the meaning of is, right?)


Mulţumesc frumos!

    I writing, in elevated speech, for example when answering a teacher's question in a classroom, we are supposed to use the form:
    este.
    The short form e is used in normal speech on the street, with family, friends etc.
