If you’ve always wanted to learn Spanish, but didn’t think it was possible because you were terrible at Spanish in high school, or you don’t get sucked into Rosetta Stone-style hype–you’ve come to the right place. I’m a normal person, not some big company and not some native Spanish speaker. I’m not a natural language learner at all actually. My first brush with Spanish ended with me getting an F in high school! But somewhere along the way, I fell in love! I’m not sure if I love Spanish because I love traveling, or I love traveling because I love Spanish (and food). But I love them both. Naturally, I want more people to love what I love, but I know that you probably don’t see Spanish like I do… not yet! That’s the point of this podcast. I want to show you that there is ANOTHER WAY! That most of the strategies and tactics they used to teach us Spanish in high school are IGNORANT. They are ignorant to our plight. I know your mistakes. I understand why you make them. They were my mistakes too! I remember the pain and the agony of having to figure it all out myself because... let’s just say... I was underwhelmed with the resources out there. Well, now with these videos (or audios) you don’t don’t have to waste the years I did.

    Conditional Tense Conjugation w/ Ser, Estar & Ir [Spanish Quickie]

    In this video, we talk about the last main verb tense–the conditional tense. The cool thing about the conditional tense is, it’s just as easy as the future tense (if not easier). There’s only one regular pattern for the whole tense. And, approximately 87% of the verbs out there, are regular in the conditional tense. Watch this video, and do the practice stuff I give you. Then, you’ll never have to worry about regular conditional conjugation again.

    Spanish Tidbit: Conducir Vs. Manejar

    Spanish Tidbit: Conducir Vs. Manejar

    In this video, we compare the verbs “conducir” and “manejar”. These two verbs have different meanings, and can be used in completely different ways. But, the two meanings do have some overlap between them, so both verbs can be used as “to drive” (in Spain and Latin America, respectively). In this video, I show you some real-life examples (newspaper headlines) of exactly how and why that happens.

    One Line at a Time, Episode #6 (The Good Place)

    In Spanish, why do they say “me amo” for “I love” sometimes, but other times, they say “me encanta” or “me encantan” for “I love”? And, why do they so often say “el,” “la,” “los” or “las” when we DON’T say “the”? In this video, we’ll address both of those questions.

My go to

This you tube/podcast is always my go to as a teacher to refresh myself on how I want to explain a topic in Spanish!!

Explains the whys & makes things memorable

Great if you are a beginner or advanced!
I am conversational in Spanish, but still have a lot to learn. This is perfect because it helps me understand concepts and the why behind putting phrases together. It helps me understand in a new way so I don’t have to go through a chart in my mind to figure out what to say/how to conjugate, but have new simple and memorable tools.
I especially love how he breaks down the contexts in which certain words are appropriate. Thank you for making this basic and understandable to a native English speaker!

Jordan is a great teacher!

I’ve tried so many different ways to learn Spanish. Most of them seem more concerned with their teaching than our learning. Jordan doesn’t teach so he can be a teacher. He teaches so we can learn Spanish easier, quicker and better!
