Verbo Ser o Estar

If this helps, I'm going to post how the verb Ser o Estar (To Be) is conjugated and the corresponding translation for each one.

Yo soy - estoy (I am)
Tú eres - estás (You are)
Usted es - está (You are)
Él es - está (He is)
Ella es - está (She is)
Eso es - está (It is)
Nosotros somos - estamos (We are)
Vosotros sois - estáis (You are)
Ellos son - están (They are)

Thanks, post your comments if you have any question.

Technically, 'eso' does not mean 'it'. 'Eso' or 'esto' are commonly used as a subject pronoun, but they are not personal pronouns. The neuter 'ello' could be used, but if the subject truly is 'it', no subject pronoun is needed.

Es importante. = It is important.
Está fría. = It is cold.
No importa. = It doesn't matter.
