  1. HI Senor Jordan,
    thank you so much for all the material that you provide so generously online. Your passion for the language and for teaching is obvious! Is there any chance that you could produce a video about differentiating between the use of ser and estar in the past tense.
    I thought I understood when to use ser and estar until I tried to do it in the past tense then I became very confused.
    Many thanks again,

  2. Hola Senor Jordan, I want to thank you for the amazing resources that you have provided. I’ve been using them since I was a student myself and I can’t thank you enough for all your amazing videos and resources.
