  1. Hello I have recently been called to the mission field to Mexico. I am trying to learn Spanish and have a desire but no finances to go to language school. Am praying though. So in the mean time I will study with you. Do you have DVD’s? If so how much? Thank you so much? God Bless

  2. Hola, senor Jorden !
    when it’s becoming formal from informal, we are just adding “Ud.” at the end of the sentence. And simultaneously, some changes are happening in rest of the part os the sentence, basically the ‘Verb” one. But, now I am not getting it. what’s the rule in it? I hope, I may learn in later lessons. isn’t it?
    ! Gracias !
    ! Adios !

  4. Hi, I’m just a bit confused. So basically the verbs, “Se” & “Te” refers to “YOU” OR “HE or SHE” For example, i would ask a girl, como te llamas. But a teacher, i would say como se llama usted. Why would that be “se”? (The question I am really trying to ask,)
