Posted by: | No Comments

I’m getting myself ready to travel with my daughter, Camila, to El Salvador where we will spend one whole month with la familia.  It will be such an amazing full-immersion experience for her right now at the age of three.  I will have many stories to share from there and I’m planning on keeping you all up-to-date on all the language and cultural experiences (hope not shocks!) that she’ll be going through. Especially since I’m signing her up at aRead More ...

Posted by: | 42 Comments

Trapped, I started furtively clicking through the site toRead More ...

Video of the Week: Dos y Dos

Here it is. A bilingual show for our niños with a live cast that sings, plays, dances and educates in Spanish and English: Dos y Dos. I found out about them over a year ago but had not been able to watch the show. I finally got my hands on a DVD and put it to the test with my daughter. I have to admit that she was not immediately drawn to the DVD cover since it features the fourRead More ...
