  1. Dear Sr. Jordan,
    If VEMOS means “we see,” what is the meaning of NOS VEMOS? We see us? I can’t make sense out of your saying “Nos vemos!” at the end of this video. Sorry to take up your time again, but I do want to understand everything in your lessons.
    Sincerely,
    Marian Steinberg

  2. Hola ! Sr Jordan.

    I have some question on the letter ‘b’ and ‘v’ in spanish. I’m not a native english speaker, please forgive my poor english.
    I ‘m self-studying spanish by some books , internet resources, youtube channel and spanish learning software.
    Are the ‘b’ and ‘v’ letter in spanish both pronounce like english b sound?
    I’m confused by hearing different people pronounce differently on the same words with letter ‘b’ or ‘v’.
    Is my ear problem or the habit or Spain and Latin America?
    I prefer to learn the Latin America way of Spanish.

    Mucho gracias

  3. hola… I understand why an a + el = al (Yo quierro ir al parque) However, not sure why Javier vive cerca del (de + el) zoologico….

    Gracias Sr. Jordon.

  4. cerca de + noun= close to, near something.

    Ex:
    cerca de la casa -> close to the house
    cerca de la playa -> close to the beach
    cerca de mi coche -> close to my car
    cerca de un edificio alto -> close to a tall building

    but we combine ‘de’ when the thing starts has an ‘el’ to form “del”

    ex:
    cerca del baño
    cerca del zoológico
    cerca del parque
    etc

    -Sr. J

  5. What’s the difference between; tan, entonces and asi que and when is it appropriate for them to be used?
    Also, what’s the difference between; conmigo and con mi, contigo and con ti? Is there a difference or are they just shortcuts?
