Very nice! Helped me a lot with my homework. Also could you possibly teach me what green screening technique you used to do this? I see a small green outline so, yea. Thanks!

Not sure what ‘technique’ you’re referring to. If you mean how do I get the green screen to work, I’ll be making a video to show you how I make my videos coming soon in a few weeks!

I made my bed = Yo hize la cama? I thought it’s Yo hize mi cama

Jun 2, 2010 at 10:42 am

I’m sorry, it should be Yo hizo la cama & Yo hizo mi cama

I double checked with native Speakers and as I suspected, both are correct.

If you say ‘Yo hice la cama’ it’s understood whose you made.

If you want to make sure people understand (or emphasize the fact that you performed the action) you can add the ‘mi’ or ‘tu’ or ’su’, etc.

Hope that made sense! Thanks for your question 🙂

Gracias para los leciones (sp?). These verbs are getting pretty tough to remember. Anyway, I noticed the cheat sheets below the video weren’t changed from the previous ‘hacer’ page. Thought you should know.

These lessons are great!!! And you are so clear and enthusiastic – muchas gracias 🙂

¡Gracias! I’m a fan of your lessons. You make it seem simple (less daunting) when it’s so complicated!
I’m determined to master the preterite. 😉

How do you know whether to use ‘su’ or ‘sus’ for his, her, their? Is there a video on this?

Oct 8, 2011 at 12:32 am

Also, when translating ‘I made my bed’, how come it is simply, “yo hice la cama’ and not “yo hice mi cama”.

¡Gracias! I have a test tomarrow in Spanish 2 and this helped alot! It’s not so complicated anymore. 🙂

Can you include the vosotros/as form in the practice during the video? Thank you and I look forward to your next video.
