Learning Spanish (part 2...ahem "dos")

Last week, I posted about Cinco de Mayo and learning Spanish and recommended some ways to help introduce a second language (Spanish in our case) to children.

This week, I wanted to post some media related materials that we use to help learn new Spanish vocabulary and reinforce what we have learned.

This is an app that has pictures which correspond with vocabulary.  This one is great for little ones. 

Sesame Street: Fiesta! is such a fun and active video that not only incorporates Spanish into songs, but also introduces some cultural influences of various Spanish speaking communities/countries.

Songs are a great way to introduce new vocabulary for a second language, especially with actions that correspond.  Cantos Bíblicos Con Acción is one that we enjoy.

Rosetta Stone Spanish (Latin America) Level 1 is pretty widely known and self explanatory.  We got this for my husband before we went to stay in Costa Rica for 3 months several years ago.  (I think it would have been cheaper for me to just speak it with him?!?!)  It is a good program though. : )

Enjoy!  Que viva el Español!
