Hey!

I just have one quick question about the cat example. Why did you use del instead of de for the first response establishing whose cat it was?

Love the videos!
Dielle

Great question. When we use proper names like ‘Pablo’ or “Susana’, I can say:
el gato de Pablo
or
el gato de Susana

However, when I use nouns such as ‘el hombre’ or ‘la mujer’
el gato del hombre
el gato de la mujer

de + el gives us ‘del’

now when we are talking about a ‘mr’ , ‘mrs’ or ‘miss’ (señor, señora, señorita), we leave the article in…
el gato del Señor Jordan
el gato de la Señora Martínez
el gato de la Señorita Lozano

Hi Sr Jordan!

I´m a swedish girl who love your videos. They (and you) are really great!

In this video I noticed that you did not say, for example, “La camisa de tu” or “La piña de mí” before you used the “Tu camisa” and “Mi piña” forms. Why? Is it all wrong to say so?

Best reguards

Christina
