Sequel in English

It's not quite true that English has only two demonstratives - there's an older word still in common use at least in the North of England, usefully equivalent to 'aquel':

It's in wider use in the phrase 'wild blue yonder'

Hola Peter

As yolder is not in current use in mainstream English and we are not able to include English regionalisms in our lessons, we haven´t included an explanation on "yolder" in this instance. 

But this is a good comment to stay in the forum for those who familiarise with this word. 

Saludos cordiales.
