WOW, now that I’m writing you, I’m realizing what a rock star you are to me! Am excited just to be asking a question, ha ha. So I’ve been looking thru your videos for help with darse cuenta usage. Do you have one that explains this? Am glad too that I was directed to your website from youtube and found out I can buy one of your coolio t-shirts. Thanks for making Spanish so much easier to learn. You must have a lot of patience to repeat things so many times. You’re incredible, thank you! From one of your many fans, Anita
