At 0:42 you use the word “coches”, but I don’t remember seeing this word previously. Please add it to the word list below the video. Thanks again for making these. They are are awesome!

I came upon your website quite by accident. I did Spanish many light years ago, but was always interested in the language. I made a decision to start learning it again, since my current situation demands it. It is like learning to ride a bicycle all over again. Your site is very informative — in fact, the best I’ve come across so far. Your accent is quite good, and you seem to have a very good command of the language. I’ve played a few of the videos and find them rather educational. I Look forward to learning more. Thank you for your time and effort. Que Dios te bendiga and te guarde!

Hola, Sr. Jordan!

Lo felicito por su extraordinario trabajo! Sus videos e información son muy utiles en la sala de clases donde se enseña español como segundo idioma.

¿Quisiera saber si me da su permiso para usar su “site” en el sitio que uso con mis estudiantes de escuela superior aqui en Virginia Beach?

Gracias de antemano,
y abrazos,
