      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?

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