02 Preterite Vs Imperfect SONG! (Cielito Lindo)

¡Hola! Someone commented on Twitter that it would be nice if there were a song helping with that pesky concept known as: Preterite Vs Imperfect.  As you probably know by now, they are both past tenses with different uses and meanings!  We cover those in this song!

It’s probably my most ambitious video yet!  Enjoy!

Learn Spanish in a Natural Way!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Mar 24, 2015 in agreement, basic, basics, information, random, year 1

Here’s a blog that I started to accompany the “mono” story I’ve been working on every so often.

The idea is to learn Spanish in a more natural, repetitive way.

It’s more focused on high frequency structures (goes, likes, wants, needs) and less on long vocabulary lists.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

And I’ve also been adding additional guided questions in every post for people who wanted additional practice or guidance as they watch the vids!

01 Present Tense -ER verb endings song!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 23, 2015 in -ER, agreement, conjugation, grammar, information, present, regular, song, stem-changers, verbs, year 1

Here’s a little video to help you with all of the -ER verb endings in the present tense in Spanish!  It explains how to remove the –ER from the end of the verb and then add the endings. And hopefully it gets stuck in your head due to its catchiness!

¡Bienvenidos a!

(please note that Mexico is NOT part of Central America even if it appears misleading in the video).  I was coloring the Spanish speaking countries.  Note that Belice is officially an English speaking country, but Spanish is also used (from what I understand).

Paypal Poll Question *Update*

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 13, 2009 in information

Thanks for your feedback!  I’ve decided to keep the Paypal button since I can’t see it deterring people from learning.

-Sr. J

~~~~~~~~~Original Entry Below~~~~~~~~~

I read an article awhile back about restaurants where you could pay whatever you thought was fair. Sometimes people overpay, other times people underpay. It intrigued me.  (See story)

Ok all.  Here’s the low-down. Read more…

Los acentos ortográficos / Accent marks

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 30, 2008 in information

If you’re wanting to learn how to type accent marks as you work on your Spanish here are the ways for a PC user.  I used to know how to do it on a Macintosh but I have since forgotten!

In Microsoft Word / Wordpad

Simply follow the directions below:
1) press ctrl and
2) release
3) press key of vowel you would like to accent
4) release

[ctrl and ‘] + [a] = á

For ñ, [ctrl and shift and ~] + [n]

For any other program

Make sure num-lock is on.  This is important because you’ll be using the number keypad (numbers on the right side of keyboard).

You’ll press alt, type in the code below, and release alt and it will yield the resulting letters.

Á = 0193
á = 0225
É = 0201
é =  0233
Í = 0205
í = 0237
Ó = 0211
ó = 0243
Ú = 0218
ú = 0250
Ü = 0220
ü = 0252
Ñ = 0209
ñ = 0241
¡ = 0161
¿ = 0191

Hope this is helpful!
