What happens if we want to introduce somebody else, somebody that's beside us? Let's say I want to say, 'This is my friend Peter,' or 'This is Mr. Johnson.' The phrase in Spanish is: 'Este es' and then you say the name of the person. For instance, 'Este es Peter. Este es el señor Johnson. Este es José.' Let's repeat: 'este es'. 'Este es mi amigo Peter.' Now, if we are introducing somebody who is beside us, and this is a lady, a woman, a girl, there's a little change. Listen: 'esta es.' This is for a woman, 'esta.' You hear the difference between 'este' and 'esta'? 'Este' is for a man, 'esta' is for a woman. 'Esta es Jennifer. Esta es Alice.' This is Jennifer. This is Alice. So why don't you introduce somebody you have beside you who is a woman. Can you repeat? 'Esta es.'
