1. Conocer refers to meeting/knowing people (the start of knowing = meeting); the focus is on knowing/being acquainted. Encontrar refers to meeting/getting together with people; the focus is on getting together.

2. 'Personal a'. Direct objects that are definite and identified people or personified beings are almost invariably marked with 'personal a'.

Una cosa otra, he escuchado "ooo, está rico" o "ahhh, eso está pritty" (like cool) etc. Pienso que este sea una mal uso de estar, verdad?? Cuando preguanté a un hispano sobre esto, me dijo que se puede usar bien estar bien ser. ¿Es este uso correcto??
