Señor Jordan's Spanish Videos


Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 23, 2016 in vocabulary

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!

¡Lo siento!

su siervo,

“Señor Jordan”

Hey everyone!  Sr. Jordan here.

I’m currently planning videos to film this summer!

Two other projects you might check out:


Here are the videos from last summer. While I didn’t make as many as I would have liked to, I am very proud of the quality of the videos as well as the popularity of my new companion, Lucas.

Here are some of the highlights:

01 Some common words for pets in Spanish

¡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.)

“Arréglate Conmigo” con Ale (Spanish in Context)

Here’s a collaboration that has been in the works since May of this year.

I reached out to Alejandra from the Youtube channel Ale Pro Makeup 96 to make a video on getting ready for an occasion since she does a lot of makeup vids.

Here’s what she came up with.  You can see my reaction video to seeing hers here where I get ready for a tea party.

I made a guide to go along with the video for you to follow along if you would like (see below).

She speaks fast and has a lot of words she uses.  And some words are specialized.  Things I noticed a lot were: clothing words, colors, parts of the face, words for make-upyo form, future tense

Of course there are other phrases in the video as well!

Hope you like it!  And if you do, check out Ale’s youtube channel to practice Spanish in context!

Asking for and Giving Directions (Spanish in Context)

Elena reached out to me sometime this past spring (2016) and wanted to interview me for her Spanish learning channel. It was then I found out about her talents and story.

I have seen her channel continue to grow and love her style of teaching. I asked her to help me with a video (since she’s a Native speaker) and I love that Spain accent! Here’s what she came up with!

In this video, she practices giving and getting directions in Spanish.

I hope it is one of many collaborations we can do in the future to help people learn!

Hope you enjoy it! And don’t forget to check out Elena’s channel on Youtube here and her website! And please let her know I sent you. Read more…

Working on animation

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jun 3, 2016 in information, misc, news, year 1

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!
