  1. Thank you for another great explanation, Senor Jordan! I will be using this video in my Spanish 2 classes today. Prohibe/prohiben does not take an accent mark, though. Just thought I’d throw that out there! Also, in the “no service animals” sign at the beginning of the video, they spelled servicio wrong. I notice that lots of signs, labels and other written Spanish out in the community have errors. I am constantly on the lookout for them! Thanks, again!!

  2. All these years, and I am just now finding this out! Thank you for schooling me and updating my understanding of how this language works, Sr. Jordan! Keep up the great work! Seems like some textbooks out there need some updating as well!
