I just started using Memrise to help learn Spanish. estoy and tengo are an issue for me in one lesson.
According to the software.
estoy enferma = I am sick
tengo hambre = I am hungry
It states that "estoy" = I am (temporary), while "tengo" = I have.
Since both of these words that come after estoy and tengo are "feelings" in my opinion, how can I work this out to understand which word to use when I need to?
I would have never associated tengo with "I am". I would have said "estoy hambre".
