The Sacrifices We Make to Raise Bilingual Children

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Overall, I am generally quite pleased with everything my husband and I do to further our sons’ bilingual education. But I am the product of my parents’ efforts to raise my brother and me bilingual, and occasionally I can’t help but compare my efforts to theirs. When I think of everything they did for us, I am keenly aware of two things. One, with all of our modern conveniences, we have it much easier. And two, they made way moreRead More ...

Voyager Kids Global Learning App

Posted by: | No Comments

Today, I’m sharing a different kind of app with you. Generally, we prefer to review only apps with a Spanish language option. However, we’re making an exception for Voyager Kids because it is such a fantastic resource for globally-minded kids, like the ones we are hopefully all in the midst of raising. With four categories (Travel, Learn, Explore, and Play) and tons of fact-filled pages inside each one, Voyager Kids is a wealth of information about animals, plants, landmarks, culture, andRead More ...

Recommendations for Immersion Travel in Peru

Posted by: | 7 Comments

The past couple of summers, my family and I have taken vacations that have enabled us to be immersed in Spanish.

In the comments section, there were often requests for further information and moreRead More ...

Of course, I was all over my husband making sure he took pictures ofRead More ...

Immersion Travel: Summer Camp in Puerto Rico

Posted by: | 20 Comments

It’s been two weeks since we arrived in Puerto Rico and the experience has already been much more than I expected. My kids have been so immersed in Spanish at every level and in so many settings that a couple of days ago Vanessa actually came up to me and out of nowhere asked: “Mami, ¿qué tal si me olvido mi inglés?” I wanted to laugh at her ingenuity, but I just reassured her that this wouldn’t happen. Truth is sheRead More ...

My Son Prefers English Even Though Spanish is All We Speak at Home

Posted by: | 7 Comments

It’s official! My 3-year-old son’s vocabulary in English has multiplied exponentially the last couple of months, and he’s starting to have a preference for his new language. I’ve been observing him closely lately and I am pretty amazed by the fact that whenever he plays by himself, English is his language of choice. Nothing wrong with that, except that it’s all totally new for me because his sister didn’t really do that. I’m pretty sure it has to do with the fact thatRead More ...
