Hola a todos. In this lesson, we’ll be continuing with the preterite. This time, we’re covering regular -er verbs. But just like with -ar verbs, the -er stem changers can be lumped into this group as well. Irregulars are a completely different story and those will eventually be covered! Enjoy!

  1. i understood a bit of what the guy is saying. printed off the list just to study over break if i need to and just as a small dictionary.

  2. The video went really fast but I went back a couple times and wrote down all the examples. I also wrote down the vocab. It was helpful and the video allowed me to understand the concepts.

  3. The video was helpful with conjucations. I wrote the vocab down to learn from later. I liked how he gave a lot of examples to help better understand the concepts.

  6. Senor Jordan,

    I’ve been trying to learn Spanish for years but the past tense completely tripped me up repeatedly!

    Your lessons are the best I’ve found. I’ve been through about 25 courses in my life.

    As soon as I cease being unemployed, I’m sending you a really good donation!

    Thank you so much!
