  1. I have tried a million different methods for learning Spanish and none of them seem to work! I recently discovered your videos and they are so simple and effective… Thank you so much!!!

  2. Hi, quick question – have just begun my “Learning Spanish” journey, and found your website (which is wonderful, btw). Was wondering, tho – in the video “Telling Time #2 (Practice)”, one of the clock faces shows 1:45 and this was translated as “es la una cuaranta y cinco”. Seems like all the others use “y” between the hour and minutes, is this peculiar to “es la una”?
    Gracias por tu ayuda!
