Two of Charis's loves are music and Spanish. A few ways we foster these loves are reading to her in Spanish from the Bible and various picture books, talking to her in Spanish-though mama needs more practice, letting her make music, attempting to talk in Spanish to an older lady at church, and playing ¡Sabor! Spanish Learning Songs.
One of my regrets is not keeping up with Spanish and letting it go after I stopped taking it after my junior year. There are many Hispanic people in the DC Metro region. I would love to be able to communicate with our neighbors better.
My husband loves learning languages, so much so that he majored in Spanish and French in college and received his Master's degree in Spanish translation. One of our goals as parents is to teach our children a foreign language.
¡Sabor! helped reintroduce me to Spanish words that I learned long ago. The music is lively and upbeat. A translation guide is included in the CD, along with a vocabulary list. In order to stay true to their mission of teaching Spanish to beginners, they provide a word-by-word translation of each song, instead of paraphrasing it. Even if you don't know Spanish, this CD would be great to help teach simple words and phrases to you and your children.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally
and believe will be good for my readers.
