Ser - Presente Video

Personally, I show this video a couple of times for reinforcement with visual learners. However, I find that most students learn best by singing this song while performing the matching actions.
Also, I know that some of you are probably wondering why I did not include the vosotros form in this song (or in any of the conjugation songs, for that matter). When I created this song, I did it for my own students only, and I personally did not teach vosotros. Of course, now that these songs are reaching a wide audience, I wish I had included the form. I do have some ideas on how to include the form in some of these conjugation songs. I will post something on my blog about it soon.

Why Can't I Watch the Whole Video?!
know, I know, I know, this whole subscription thing is a major pain. There are 3 gazillion videos for free on YouTube, so why would you pay twenty bucks just to watch a few educational Spanish videos?
First of all, if you're a student, I don't expect you to pay. Click here for more information about how to get access.
Teachers, here is why I charge a small fee for access:
Honestly, I don't make these videos for the money. I love teaching Spanish, and I think it's amazing that I get to share my love of the language with people all around the world.
That said, these videos take a lot of time and resources. The ¡PAN! music video alone took over 150 hours of my time, with a budget of five thousand dollars.
Can't You Just Use Advertisers?
Sure, I could make everything on my website free, and instead earn money from advertising. I'm fully aware that by doing so, my site would get more visitors, generate more revenue, and take less time to manage. Really, it seems like a win-win for everyone.
Except, see, I'm kind of old-fashioned about advertising.
I don't like the idea of advertising on an educational website, just as I don't like seeing Coca-Cola billboards inside a school building. Students will have their entire lives to have products screamed at them, and I don't feel like adding to the noise.
A lot of people with better business sense than me would scoff at this idealism, but as I said, I'm not doing this for the money. I merely want to bring in enough revenue to fund new materials, and to justify to my family the rather ridiculous amounts of time that my website requires.
But there is another reason:
If you're not paying for it, you are the product.
I will not sell your information (or that of your students). I will not track every single click you make on my site, and then sell it to advertisers so that they have a better idea of who you are and how to sell stuff to you.
If you take the leap and purchase a subscription with SenorWooly.com, I promise to never give corporations your name, email address, or preferred brand of peanut butter. I also promise never to make you and your students watch a 30-second deodorant commercial before Guapo.
When you spend the twenty dollars it costs for a one-year membership, you get what you pay for – fun and creative songs, videos and games created by a fellow Spanish teacher.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I always answer emails personally, and am happy to do so.
