  2. Dear Señor Jordan,

    I have been watching your videos for about 2 years now and i really like them a lot. I wish I had had you as my high school spanish teacher years ago. I am living abroad now and have started all over in Spanish and I am attending a one on one spanish class. But I am confused about prepositional pronouns, possessive pronouns and indirect and direct object pronouns. I thought I understood but my teacher speaks very little English. I can not find a video on prepositional pronouns here on your site.
    Am I just miss understanding her? What videos of yours can help me please?
    Keep up the good work!
    Thanks Karen
