Season 2 – Lesson 16 – Coffee Break Spanish

More preterite tenses this week: it’s now time to look at reflexive verbs and verbs which have spelling changes (‘radical-changing verbs’) in the preterite tense. Please note that lesson 16 of Season 2 was originally known as lesson 216 of Coffee Break Spanish. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

  1. Thanks for explaining the indirect object pronouns. I’d been wondering about that for a while. I studied German when I was in school so I’m used to using different pronouns for the indirect object and the direct object but I remember when we were going over ordering food in a restaurant, you said “para mi” and “para ti.” Does Spanish also have another set of pronouns for the object of a preposition?

  2. estoy aprendiendo mas aqui que cuando estoy en la escuela con nuestra profesora nueva.. Gracias a ti! A mi me encanta la manera como Mark enseña.

  3. I find the Scottish accent adorable and amazing. One question though-when you say “zed” you are referring to the letter z, right?
