  1. Thanks for your videos, they are excellent resources for reinforce the daily lesson. But every semester Spanish teachers begins with the spanish countries speaking, capitals and nationalities, I think can be a great idea if you create a video show us the spanish countries map, capitals and nationalities. My first quiz is always using the maps from spanish textbook. That can be great because they love you a lot. You can take some ideas from teacher you tube – spanish countries speaking. Thanks again you’re the best. And you spanish is excelent!!!!

  2. I’m in Spanish one at my school and my teacher loooovvves to show your videos and i think they really help thanks keep up the good work!!!!

  3. I’m new to your videos. Thanks they are very fun and helpful. Btw I am over fifty btw but want to improve my Spanish. After the ser video with the Doctor acronym it would be helpful to have the practice session remind which rule is being applied ie o for occupation. Thanks again.
