  4. Hey!

    I just have one quick question about the cat example. Why did you use del instead of de for the first response establishing whose cat it was?

    Love the videos!

  5. Great question. When we use proper names like ‘Pablo’ or “Susana’, I can say:
    el gato de Pablo
    or
    el gato de Susana

    However, when I use nouns such as ‘el hombre’ or ‘la mujer’
    el gato del hombre
    el gato de la mujer

    de + el gives us ‘del’

    now when we are talking about a ‘mr’ , ‘mrs’ or ‘miss’ (señor, señora, señorita), we leave the article in…
    el gato del Señor Jordan
    el gato de la Señora Martínez
    el gato de la Señorita Lozano

  6. Hi Sr Jordan!

    I´m a swedish girl who love your videos. They (and you) are really great!

    In this video I noticed that you did not say, for example, “La camisa de tu” or “La piña de mí” before you used the “Tu camisa” and “Mi piña” forms. Why? Is it all wrong to say so?

    Best reguards
