So if you have been linking my vids to your curriculum or simply have bookmarked certain videos, you’ll notice that they will now take you to the front page instead of the video.
I realized that the old system needed to be updated to remove the date from the URL since those weren’t relevant. I never meant to have the blog for 8 years and I am so thankful to you all for sticking with me! Please forgive me for any inconvenience this causes you (grande o pequeña)!
If you don’t mind updating your urls and continuing to use the site to learn from and also to refer others to learn with, I appreciate you!
¡Hola! So I thought it would be fun to make a simple vocabulary video centered around different “mascotas” or “pets” as we might call them in English. Thus grew this idea into a video! Hope you enjoy it. You’ll also notice that we are using all of the forms of tener(to have) in context minus the form from Spain: tenéis.
And there is a word bank at the end if you wanted to see what all is in the video!
Espero que disfrutes del video.(I hope that you enjoy the video.)
If you haven’t seen the storytelling series: Cuentas Conmigo that I did this spring with anyone that wanted to participate, something that I love when I do those stories is how they push me in the creative process.
For example, I needed to make a sequence where the ninja jumps and kicks another character. And I had to dabble in some actual animation.
I think it turned out well!
This inspired me for a video on adverbs that I haven’t made yet but someone requested a long time ago!
So I thought that I could throw in some animations with Juan Cena into the video.
Here’s what I came up with so far today while experimenting with character animation.
What do you think!?
Here’s Juan dancing the robot.
And here’s him singing a catchy little diddy.
Look out for the new video on forming adverbs sometime before September!
In this lesson, we’re going to go over the O in WEIRDOS, which stands for Ojalá. It’s an incredibly common expression in Spanish, which is rooted in the history of Spain!
So check out the video and practice afterwards to check your understanding!
Leave any questions or comments below!
*This video was a lot of fun to make and I hope you enjoy it and find it educational. In addition, I hope you enjoy the personal anecdotes that I have included as learning Spanish continues to be something very personal in my life! 😉
Explanation video: History of Ojalá, Spain and moor! Err I meant more. Or did I?
Here’s a fun little song I came up with to help with colors, animals and some high frequency words!
Let me know what you think!
Some asked for a coloring sheet to use with the video. Here are two different ones. Let me know if you had a better idea for how I could make them. I figured in one they could write the colors in and in the other they can just colors in the colors and the animals! Read more…
