Grammar Point: "be" = ser/estar

Spanish uses the verbs ser and estar to mean "be". The verb ser tends to be used to describe permanent characteristics, e.g.: María es mi hija ("Maria is my daughter") and estar to indicate less permanent ones Mi amiga está enojado ("My friend is angry").
The verb estar tends to be used before the preposition en, e.g.: Paulo está en la cocina ("Paulo is in the kitchen"); ser tends to be used before the preposition de, e.g.: Soy de Canadá ("I am from Canada"). You can learn more about ser and estar here.
