Raising Bilingual Niños: Tip #1
One trick I’ve discovered for helping my kids learn Spanish vocabulary, is to use their old computer games in a new way. Many computer games allow you to go into the options and select a language. I change the language to Spanish, and ta-da! A baby-ish ABC game that your kids have grown out of, is suddenly a useful foreign language tool.
The video below shows my younger son playing a game called Sebran’s ABC. For those of you who have been wanting to hear Suegra, well, halfway through the video, in the background you can hear her trying to help my son cheat. My husband chastises her and tells her to let him do it. You have to have the volume way up, but it happens around 1:20 in the video. Also, sorry about the noticias in the background. You know whose fault that was.
