¡Hola!  In this lesson we continue learning how to change verbs in the different forms.  This video covers the (you) form.  Remember that there are two ways to say ‘you’ in Spanish.  You might review the lesson on formal vs. informal to refresh your memory.


Let me know if you have any questions/comments/suggestions.

nadar – to swim
necesitar – to need

¿Tú nadas? – Do you swim?

Hola ! Sr. Jordan,
As somebody commented on your just previous lesson (01-019) and you corrected the Verb…..
cocinar – to dance (incorrect)
cocinar – to cook (correct)
Please, make correction the same in lessons (01-020, in this lesson) and (01-021).
! Adios !

Hola, senor Jordan! May I ask you about pronunciation? Exuse me, you told us that you speak Latina Spanish, didn’t you? In Latina Spanish “LL” read as a “zh” not as a “Y”. I’m wrong? Thank you for you answer.
