In this video lesson, we’ll be continuing with the verb ir in the present tense.  Ir is an irregular verb.

In addition to the present tense, we can also use this verb for a future tense as long as we remember the rule on how to do it.  The formula is [form of ir] + a + [infinitive verb].  Enjoy.

Los acentos ortográficos / Accent marks

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 30, 2008 in information

If you’re wanting to learn how to type accent marks as you work on your Spanish here are the ways for a PC user.  I used to know how to do it on a Macintosh but I have since forgotten!

In Microsoft Word / Wordpad

Simply follow the directions below:
1) press ctrl and
2) release
3) press key of vowel you would like to accent
4) release

example:
[ctrl and ‘] + [a] = á

For ñ, [ctrl and shift and ~] + [n]

For any other program

Make sure num-lock is on.  This is important because you’ll be using the number keypad (numbers on the right side of keyboard).

You’ll press alt, type in the code below, and release alt and it will yield the resulting letters.

Á = 0193
á = 0225
É = 0201
é =  0233
Í = 0205
í = 0237
Ó = 0211
ó = 0243
Ú = 0218
ú = 0250
Ü = 0220
ü = 0252
Ñ = 0209
ñ = 0241
¡ = 0161
¿ = 0191

Hope this is helpful!

02 Demonstrative Adjectives (Part 1): This & That

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 26, 2008 in grammar, year 2

¡Hola estudiantes! En este video, we’ll be learning about the singular form of demonstrative adjectives (this, that).  Because of the gender in Spanish, when we use these as adjectives, there are two ways to say each.

this (este / esta)
that (ese / esa)
that [far away] (aquel / aquella)

Stay tuned for the next video in this series where we learn the plural forms and I teach you a special to remember them!

Feel free to leave questions/comments/suggestions about this video below.

Thanks for watching! Read more…

01-028 Present Tense – IR (part 2) ¿Adónde…?

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 18, 2008 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, present, verbs, year 1

In this video lesson, we’ll be continuing with the verb ir in the present tense.  Ir is an irregular verb.  This means that although ‘to go’ is ir, the different forms do not look even close to ‘ir‘.  Those forms are as follows…

yo voy vasél/ella/usted vanosotros/nosotras vamosellos/ellas/ustedes van.

In this video, we’ll be learning how to ask and answering questions with the word: ¿Adónde? (Where (to)?)  Enjoy!

01-027 Present Tense – IR (part 1) + place vocabulary

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 17, 2008 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, present, verbs, year 1

In this video lesson, we’ll be going over the verb ir in the present tense.  Ir is an irregular verb.  This means that although ‘to go’ is ir, the different forms do not look even close to ‘ir‘.

yo voy vasél/ella/usted vanosotros/nosotras vamosellos/ellas/ustedes van.

This also includes some vocabulary on places also because we have to use ‘a‘ to mean ‘to’ when we go to a place.  It will make more sense in the video!  Enjoy.

¡Cultura! – el día de los muertos

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 2, 2008 in culture

¡Hola!  Feliz día de los muertos.  It wouldn’t be fair to have all of the grammar that we’ve been going over and not have anything dealing with the rich culture of Spanish-speakers.  November 1st and November 2nd make an important occasion and although it might appear to on the surface, it has NOTHING to do with Halloween!

El día de los muertos, or ‘Day of the Dead’ is a day in which people are believed to return from the dead to visit their living relatives.  This tradition is celebrated differently from country to country and even different regions have their own celebration.

There are already some pretty good resources on this holiday.  Check them out! Read more…
