HOW DO YOU USE THE VERB "STAY"?
Many Spanish people use this verb incorrectly because in English it can only be used in a few situations:
1) If you are going somewhere on holiday then you will probably STAY there a few days (which means that you are sleeping there for a few nights).
2) "Stay" can also be used to say: "me quedo aqui". For example: I will "stay" at home because I am feeling a little tired.
3) It can also be used if you want to express the period of time that you were in a certain location. For example: "I stayed in the restaurant for 4 hours".
Spanish people like to use "stay" in many other situations but in most cases it is better to use the verb "to be".
Hope that helps!
