02 Neutral Demonstratives

Posted by Señor Jordan on Dec 30, 2008 in culture, grammar, year 2

This lesson is the last lesson (for now) on the demonstratives.  Those again are:
este / esta – this
estos / estas – these
ese / esa – that
esos / esas– those
aquel / aquella – that (far)
aquellos / aquellas – those (far)

Now, since these all deal with gender… which would you use when you didn’t know the object (much less the gender) of something that you’re talking about?  For that reason we have neutral demonstratives which take the place of the general ‘this’ or ‘that’.

Let me know if you have any questions/comments/suggestions about this video lesson!

Also, this lesson mentions a Mexican television program.  For more on Chavo del Ocho, you might check this out.  To watch some clips, try this. Read more…

02 Demonstrative Pronouns

Posted by Señor Jordan on Dec 30, 2008 in grammar, year 2

This video lesson is a continuation on the demonstrative lessons.  Now, so far we’ve gone over the demonstrative adjectives:
este / esta – this
estos / estas – these
ese / esa – that
esos / esas– those
aquel / aquella – that (far)
aquellos / aquellas – those (far)

Those go before nouns to modify them. If only there were a way to get rid of the noun…[strokes chin]. Oh wait there is!

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about this video!

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!
