Welcome to week five of Multilingual Living’s Language Challenge 101 – learning a language over the course of 101 days. If you missed our first few weeks, just click on the Language Challenge 101 button on the very left of this website page and you’ll find everything we have done so far.
We are still kind of rambling along with our Spanish language learning but it feels exciting and fun. We aren’t following a regular, systematic ritual to what we are doing but we didn’t feel worried about it at all this week. It feels like we have a lot of time and right now just want to explore. And explore is what we are doing! There are a few things I really want to get started with (like Destinos – see below) but I don’t feel stressed about it. Just very excited.
There are so many fabulous ways to expose ourselves to Spanish! Books, DVDs, online YouTube videos, TV stations and so much more. Who knew that we were surrounded by so much Spanish. What fun!
Here is this week’s video diary. We just finished it before I started this post!
As I mention in our video diary, a surprise package arrived in the mail right before we headed out for camping last week! It was from Jennifer Manriquez and her family from Bilingual Fun. We were so excited when we opened it and saw DVDs, a Spanish-English dictionary (which we forgot to show in the video diary) and T-shirts! What a fabulous package of bilingual fun, indeed. Please view the video diary to see the items (and see below for a 10% discount!).
The kids watched the DVDs right away and when we got back from camping they popped them into the DVD player again to watch them over and over again. Jennifer and her husband are so sweet as they share the Spanish language with kids. Songs, sentences, music and more are in these two DVDs. My kids enjoyed everything about the them as well as the fabulously fun T-shirts (which they wore with great pride during our camping trip).
