For the most part of my over 15 years of teaching Spanish, the question of when to use "ser" or "estar" has been a regular one. From beginners to advanced students of Spanish, all of them share the misconception that "ser is for permanent things and estar for temporary ones". And while they are not entirely wrong, that sweeping statement often leads to mistakes and hands thrown in despair.
There is more to those two verbs than that.
However, it's not complex. The difference between "ser" and "estar" is related to a mindset, to the Spanish point of view. This mindset is what I share in this audio course that you can take with you on your walks.
