  1. I would really like it if you did a video of checking out at the grocery store. The checker usually asks me something before she starts that I never understand. Sometimes I think it has to do with a store card but I'm never sure. Then when she finishes she has a little pleasantry that she says but I never understand. I just act like I do hehe. Also when I give a tip to the bagger they often use the same phrase. I'm sure it's something like "have a good day" but they speak so fast I never catch it.

    Also Spanish phrasing is never the same as in English. I think sometimes it would help if you were to give a lesson on how something is phrased in English as apposed to Spanish. I often know the words to use but not the correct phraseology. An example from this video would be "Puedo pagarlo con tarjeta?" Can I pay with a card? but the literal translation would be more like "Can I pay for it with card" I really think this is what is keeping me from being more fluent.

  3. I love this video! One of the biggest hurdles for me in learning Spanish is when to use the subjunctive. My question is for the 1st sentence highlighted: "Quiero ver si tiene cuartos disponibles." — How come the subjunctive isn't used for the verb tener if it is now known if there are rooms available or not initially?

  4. What amenities do you have question… Why tienen? Isn’t that 3 person plural? Shouldn’t it be tiene? 3 person singular.

    In asking if rooms were available tiene was used (3rd person singular)

  5. I learned Spanish to the point that I was fluent a couple years back but i've already started to lose it so this is a great help to get me back on track! Thanks for the great content. Glad I found this channel.

  6. Wonderful , thanks. I feel like I’m right there in the hotel. It’s extremely quick when I hear it first , but fine when broken down
