Posted by Señor Jordan on Jul 21, 2011 in grammar, present, verbs, year 2

¡Hola!  In this video lesson we review the word hay (there is/there are) and learn a useful phrase with it: hay que.  We use hay que to say that something is necessary.  It’s kind of an indirect way of telling people what to do and so much more.  Enjoy!

02 Por vs. Para

Posted by Señor Jordan on Apr 27, 2011 in grammar, prepositions, year 2

¡Hola!  In this lesson, we talk about some of the key differences between how we use por and para in Spanish.  It’s very confusing since both of these words can be translated as for in English for different things.

Keep in mind that you can often use both words in a sentence, but they might change the meaning slightly.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments about the lesson below.  Enjoy!
