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…

La fiesta de té (Spanish in Context)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Aug 9, 2016 in adjectives, agreement, basics, conjugation, grammar, irregular yo form, random, verbs, vocabulary

Here’s a short film I made after experimenting with camera angles, and telling a story thanks to a workshop taught by Señor Wooly himself of senorwooly.com.

I was wanting to practice certain clothing words, colors, and the “yo” form and tell a compelling story. Of course there are other phrases in the video as well!

Hope you like it!

Let me know what you think below! Read more…

How to say “the” in Spanish

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jul 22, 2016 in agreement, basic, basics, grammar, nouns, year 1

¡Hola a todos! Hope you’re doing well.  Here’s a new video on a simple concept the word: the. Yet for whatever reason there are four different words in Spanish for the!  Why is that?!

Watch the video to learn more as to why, and if you figure it out, write your answer in the comments section below.

Enjoy! Read more…

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!

¿De qué color es? (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!

I also wrote a Super Simple Reader based on the vocabulary from this song if you would like to download it to read or print off for your classes! B&W versions also available if you’d like to have your little ones color it. 🙂

LO SIENTO

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 23, 2016 in vocabulary

So if you have been linking my vids to your curriculum or simply have bookmarked certain videos, you’ll notice that they will now take you to the front page instead of the video.

I realized that the old system needed to be updated to remove the date from the URL since those weren’t relevant. I never meant to have the blog for 8 years and I am so thankful to you all for sticking with me!  Please forgive me for any inconvenience this causes you (grande o pequeña)!

If you don’t mind updating your urls and continuing to use the site to learn from and also to refer others to learn with, I appreciate you!

¡Lo siento!

su siervo,

“Señor Jordan”

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:
