Using De + possessed objects!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Dec 10, 2016 in basic, basics, grammar, possessives, prepositions, random, year 1

I’ve been wanting to make a video for a long time on how we use “de” for possessions since in English we say, “[person]’s ___” and in Spanish it’s a little different. Enjoy!

Please leave any questions or comments related to the video below.

And have a great “de“! 😉

Asking for and Giving Directions (Spanish in Context)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Sep 5, 2016 in -AR, -ER, -IR, basic, basics, conjugation, culture, grammar, ir, misc, prepositions, present, random, verbs

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…

02 Por vs. Para

Posted by Señor Jordan on Apr 27, 2011 in grammar, prepositions, year 2

¡Hola!  In this lesson, we talk about some of the key differences between how we use por and para in Spanish.  It’s very confusing since both of these words can be translated as for in English for different things.

Keep in mind that you can often use both words in a sentence, but they might change the meaning slightly.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments about the lesson below.  Enjoy!

01 Personal A

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 1, 2010 in basics, grammar, prepositions, present, year 1

¡Hola alumnos cibernéticos!

So it turns out that there are many aspects about the Spanish language that can be confusing to learners because in English, nothing like this exists.  One such thing that can confuse non-native speakers is the Personal A.  In this video below I explain the Personal A and show how to use it.

Leave any questions, comments or suggestions below. 🙂

01-030 Preposición – Con

Posted by Señor Jordan on Dec 1, 2008 in grammar, prepositions, year 1

Hola. In this video lesson we’ll be going over the preposición (preposition): con.

Con means ‘with’ and is fairly simple to use.  We can basically just place any noun after con to mean ‘with [noun]’.  There are two words that don’t follow any rhyme or reason though.  Well they do rhyme.  So I’ll give them that.

conmigo (with me);  contigo (with you)

Hope the video is helpful!

Let me know if you have any questions/comments/suggestions about this video lesson. Read more…
