speak chinese like a native

When to use 是 and when not to use 是?

Posted by si_si96 April 7, 2012 in the Group Grammar Questions .

I get very confused on when to use 是 and when not to use it.  For example:

今天是我的妈妈的生日. You use the verb  是 in this phrase but then in a phrase like: 

我很好。The place where 是 should be is not there.

So, the question is: When do you use the verb 是and when don't you use the verb 是?
