02 Preterite – Irregulars – Poder

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 9, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, preterite, verbs, year 2

This video covers another irregular verb in the preterite: poder (to be able, can).  This verb is most popular with my students in such present tense phrases as ‘¿Puedo ir al baño?‘ (Can I go to the bathroom?) o ‘¿Puedo ir a la fuente de agua?‘ (Can I go to the water fountain?).  But of course those aren’t really useful in this video since we’re going over the preterite (a past tense) of poder.

Thanks for watching!  Enjoy!

01032 Vocabulario – las frutas & gustar

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 3, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, verbs, vocabulary, year 1

Hola. In this video lesson, we’re going to review the verb gustar as well as add on to what we learned in the previous gustar videos. What the heck. I’ll throw in some fruits too.

The names for the fruits might differ from country to country. These are more or less standard names. I have noticed that my Mexican friends use ‘el limón‘ for both ‘la lima‘ and ‘el limón‘. I find that interesting.

Enjoy!
