¡Hola Señor Jordan!

I’m a student at Ohio University and I’m studying to be a Spanish Teacher. I found your website and I must say, you are brilliant! These are so great, and I hope to show them to my students. I teach Spanish to a 5th grade class once a week, and have been looking for new and fun ways to help them learn the vocabulary. Thank you so much! These are great!!
Any suggestions for new teachers? 🙂

Señor Jordan:

I am in my first yr college Spanish101 and have found all of your videos so helpful!!

Muchas gracias!!

oh, i think Sumar is add or adding, so totoy is saying adding 9 nephews and 3 nieces or to add, I have 9 nephews and 3 nieces?
I could be wrong but it is fun trying to translate 🙂

Muy bien.
‘Todos mis hermanos mayores están casados’
sounds better

The last sentence I’m not sure what ‘Sumar’ is…

*correction* Oh… sumar as someone commented below is ‘to add’. You should say “también” for ‘too’ or ‘also’.
