Estoy Aqui is how you say 'I am here' in Spanish.

  • Estoy is the version of the verb 'to be' in Spanish.
In Spanish there is a conjugation table for verbs. It will begin with I and go through the single and plural versions. Most of the time in Spanish, the word 'yo' is used for I. The verb 'to be' is irregular, in that you do not say 'yo esta' or 'yo esto'. Instead, it changes to the 'estoy', meaning 'I am'.

The verb 'to be' as an irregular verb is one of the only ones in which you may not use 'yo' at the beginning of the sentence. For example, another verb could require you to say 'yo tengo'. As you can see the 'yo' is used to mean I, but in the verb 'to be' it is 'estoy' instead of the 'yo' form.

  • Aqui
Aqui is the word for 'here' in Spanish. Since it is the translation of 'here' it makes sense that the entire sentence for 'I am here' in Spanish would be 'estoy aqui'.

You can also add other words after the sentence. For example, if you wanted to say 'I am here for you' then it would be 'estoy aqui para ti'. Some will tell you it is also 'estoy aca para ti'. Por is another word for for, which you could use. Ti or Tu are also forms of the words. This is the informal way to say it, there are also formal words to say 'you'.

  • Google translate
Any time you need a translation you might want to consider going to Google Translate. It may provide you with the words you require. You would have to know how to conjugate a verb though in order to get it into the right form.

Gabrielle is right, except for the spelling. You don't usually have to say "yo," so it's just, "soy aqui."
