  1. Señor Jordan, you have a knack for teaching Spanish and simplifying it for us. Very nice video tutorial on Direct Objects, Part 2. You make it very clear for those learning, where the subject, direct object, and verb must go, as demonstrated in your first example: Si. Lo tengo.

    It’s nice to see you distinguish objects (lo, la, los, las) versus people (me, te, lo, la, nos, los, las). Great vocab list. By the way, I’m a fan of the description photos. Great job!

  2. Sr. Jordan,
    Does “se” ever come into play here? I am confused by the wide use of “se”

  3. Is it possible for you to write the dialogs with the vocabulary so that we can continue to study them after the video is over?
    Gracias

  4. Dear Señor Jordan,

    You are an awesome teacher but I have a question. My Spanish teacher said that the Indirect Object Pronoun for El, Ella, y Usted was Le and that for Ellos, Ellas, and Ustedes it was Les. In your video, you said it was lo, la, Los, and las. We learned those to be the Direct Object Pronouns. Maybe what both of you are teaching are the same thing, or maybe not. I am kind of confused so can you help me.

  5. Very clear video on direct objects. Much better video than what comes with our school’s textbook. Hope to show it to my students soon.

  6. ME ENCANTAN TUS CLASES SEÑOR JORDAN, y las uso como explicaciones y vocabulario extra con mis alumnos. I´m currently teaching this lesson to my 8th graders, and I clicked on the comments out of curiosity.
    I´m going to answer to 2 questions, since I don´t know they got their response:

    -> To Ricky, you´re confusing INDIRECT with DIRECT OBJECT PRONOUNS. You might already have figured that one at this point, but thought to explain it anyhow. LE/s are indirect. LO, LA, LOS and LAS are direct.

    -> To Kyle, SE is a REFLEXIVE pronoun. Check that lesson out, and sure you´ll get the difference.

    GRACIAS Sr Jordan. I originally ´´found´´ you when I came across you´re Feliz Navidad video last December, and now you get to be often´´present´´in my classes (español 5th-8th)

  7. Sr. Jordan:

    Buenas tardes. Por casualidad, tiene sus videos en http://www.schooltube.com? No puedo accesar sus videos desde youtube.com en mi escuela. Esta bloqueado. Tampoco nos permiten usar un convertidor de video para poder mostrarlos en nuestras salas de clases. Ha pensado en tener los videos aqui disponibles para que sean accesados desde las escuelas?

    Que pase un buen dia.

    Mrs. Feliciano
