The Months of the year + a song!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 5, 2017 in basic, basics, information, misc, nouns, random, song, vocabulary, year 1

I’ve been wanting to redo a lot of my oldest videos. It just so happens that Lucas and I were able to make one.  But he was a little self-conscious about how he looks lately so he decided we should try to pull it off as cartoons! Hope you enjoy.

So in this video, we’ll talk about Los meses or “the months”.

I think it has a nice blend of information, basic Spanish, other Spanish phrases, and droll humor.

Stay tuned for vocabulary lists at the end!

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“! 😉

01 Some common words for pets in Spanish

¡Hola! So I thought it would be fun to make a simple vocabulary video centered around different “mascotas” or “pets” as we might call them in English. Thus grew this idea into a video!  Hope you enjoy it.  You’ll also notice that we are using all of the forms of tener (to have) in context minus the form from Spain: tenéis.

And there is a word bank at the end if you wanted to see what all is in the video!

Espero que disfrutes del video. (I hope that you enjoy the video.)

Working on animation

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jun 3, 2016 in information, misc, news, year 1

If you haven’t seen the storytelling series: Cuentas Conmigo that I did this spring with anyone that wanted to participate, something that  I love when I do those stories is how they push me in the creative process.

For example, I needed to make a sequence where the ninja jumps and kicks another character. And I had to dabble in some actual animation.

I think it turned out well!

This inspired me for a video on adverbs that I haven’t made yet but someone requested a long time ago!

So I thought that I could throw in some animations with Juan Cena into the video.

Here’s what I came up with so far today while experimenting with character animation.

What do you think!?

Here’s Juan dancing the robot.

And here’s him singing a catchy little diddy.

Look out for the new video on forming adverbs sometime before September!

Colors Song!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 15, 2016 in agreement, basic, basics, conjugation, information, misc, nouns, random, Ser vs estar, song, verbs, vocabulary, year 1

Here’s a fun little song I came up with to help with colors, animals and some high frequency words!

Let me know what you think!

Some asked for a coloring sheet to use with the video. Here are two different ones. Let me know if you had a better idea for how I could make them. I figured in one they could write the colors in and in the other they can just colors in the colors and the animals!

New Cuentas Conmigo!

I am alive and still working on some videos. Most of them will have to be filmed in the summer (unfortunately!).  But I am glad to see that Lucas has become a fairly popular addition to the videos.

Here’s a side project I am working on this semester. Please feel free to get involved. It will have language in context in a story. And you vote on the piece of information that will go into the next video!

I made a separate channel for it this time around since it’s quite different from my grammar vids.

Let me know what you think!

Here’s episode 1 in the present tense:
