02 Preterite Vs Imperfect SONG! (Cielito Lindo)

¡Hola! Someone commented on Twitter that it would be nice if there were a song helping with that pesky concept known as: Preterite Vs Imperfect.  As you probably know by now, they are both past tenses with different uses and meanings!  We cover those in this song!

It’s probably my most ambitious video yet!  Enjoy!

Please comment and/or say, “hola” below! Read more…

Preterite Irregulars Song in HD

Posted by Señor Jordan on May 20, 2015 in -AR, -ER, -IR, irregular, preterite, verbs, year 2

¡Hola! I was recently going through old video tapes I have and found the raw video of the preterite irregulars song.  I have long wanted to fix the sound coming out of one place and also reduce the hissing (s noise) in the sound.  And why not make the text a little easier to read!?

So here is the HD version!

It has also been added to the old post:

Posted by Señor Jordan on Oct 25, 2010 in -AR, -ER, -IR, conjugation, grammar, imperfect, ir, irregular, past tense, preterite, reflexives, regular, verbs, year 2

Hello everyone. I decided to try and tackle the confusing topic of preterite vs. imperfect in another video. I hope it helps you and there is less confusion after watching both videos.

Make sure to watch the previous video on this as well. Enjoy!

02 Preterite – IR Stem-changers (o-u)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 13, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, ir, preterite, reflexives, stem-changers, verbs, year 2

This video lesson covers -ir verbs in the preterite that stem change.

In the present, they change (o-ue) in the yo, , él/ella/ud, ellos/ellas/uds forms.  In the preterite, they do something a little different.   I apologize for it being a little long.  Hope this video is helpful.

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

02 Preterite – IR Stem-changers (e-i)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 8, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, ir, preterite, reflexives, stem-changers, verbs, year 2

Hola. Finally there is a video (although a little long) to explain those strange stem-changers in the preterite.  Although you might remember that -ar and -er verbs in the preterite don’t stem-change like they do in the present, the -ir verbs have to be weird.  This video will explain how (e-ie) and (e-i) -ir verbs work in the preterite.  Enjoy!

Notice that servir is actually an (e-i) verb in the present. This was a mistake in the video!

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

02 Preterite – Irregulars – Song!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 21, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, preterite, song, verbs, year 2

To help you with remembering quite of few of those irregular verbs, I’ll share a song I learned back in high school!  This song is also on page 2 of the preterite conjugation sheet.

This song helps you remember the yo forms of some of the common irregular verbs in the preterite.  If it sounds familiar that is because it is to the tune of  ‘La cucaracha‘.

HD version with newer titles:

*Note* in this video on a verb chart, the él / ella / usted form should not have an accent on “ió” and should read “io” since “vio” and “dio” do not have accents.

 

old version (2008):

02 Preterite – Irregulars – traer, conducir, traducir

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 20, 2009 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, preterite, verbs, year 2

This video lesson covers three more irregular verbs in the preterite.  They are traer (to bring), traducir (to translate) and conducir (to drive). They are all lumped together because they follow similar patterns and are similar to decir in the preterite.  Enjoy!

Feel free to leave questions, comments or suggestions below this video.
