Q: ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre to be distracted y to daydream ?
A: A daydream is a type of distraction. You are deep in your thoughts about something unrelated to what you are supposed to be doing and much less aware of your current surroundings. You escape your present reality a little. You are awake while daydreaming.
A distraction is anything that takes your attention away from the object or situation that you should normally focus on. You stop 'paying attention' (concentrating on what is important).
- He was daydreaming about how he would win next week's race until the teacher said his name 3 times.
- She could not study because she kept daydreaming about vacation.
- He rode the bus and had a daydream about hiking in the mountains.

- She missed the expressway exit because her children distracted her singing a funny song.

Q: ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre Where are they? y Where are they at? ?
A: @gwenduhlyn

The second one is just a slangy type of way to say the first one.
Q: ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre I was like ... y I said to myself ... ?
A: I think there's a small difference in nuance, but you're right that they both can be used here.

I think "I said to myself..." sounds too literary for casual conversation. And if you used it, I would think those were the exact words you said or thought to yourself.

We use "I was like..." all the time though. It's more flexible because you can use it to put your emotions into words, and those words don't necessarily have to be what was said or thought. If someone said, "I was like, what's happening?", they might just be describing the fear or panic they felt and didn't actually say OR think it. It may or may not be a direct quote.

Please let me know if anything I said wasn't clear!
Q: ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre I shall be late y I will be late ?
A: They mean the same thing, but “I shall be late” sounds too formal and isn’t something that you will hear.

It’s better to just say “I will be late”.

e-sports are popular
Which is right?
A: It depends if "e-sports" is a plural or singular in the context.
In "E-sports are popular." you are using "e-sports" to refer to multiple online sporting games, so it is a plural and so you use "are".
In "E-sports is a market worth $700m a year." you are using "e-sports" to refer to a single category called "e-sports", so it is a singular and so you use "is".
Hope this helps : )
