Video of the Week: Stand By Me by Prince Royce

I had never thought of including a music video as part of our Video of the Week, but our reader and friend, Melissa Basadre,  recommended this one by the very popular bachata artist Prince Royce.  In her words: “I’m sure you’ve heard this version of Stand By Me but I wanted to share it with you anyway, as I think it’s a perfect example of bilingualism! ¡Me encanta y tiene mucho ritmo!“ We agree with Melissa.  It’s a beautiful songRead More ...

Cha, Cha, Cha: Canciones Infantiles {Giveaway}

Most kids, mine included, are naturally musical, and using music to create a bilingual environment is an organic way to foster language learning.  So I’m always on the lookout for additions to our playlist, and am happy to say that this will stay in heavy rotation.  If you’re looking for some new tunes en español, you can’t go wrong with “Cha, Cha, Cha!” Not only is Cha Cha Cha fun to listen to, it really does teach Spanish to bothRead More ...

Video of the Week: A glimpse into a bilingual playdate

I am lucky–very lucky–to have many friends who are raising bilingual children around me.  Our weekly playdates with Dariela´s son, Adrián, have become a source of intense joy for Camila.  I can´t help but say how cute they are together! I´ve told you before how Adrián, who´s being raised with the OPOL method,  knows to speak in Spanish as soon as he sees Camila and me coming.  A couple of weeks ago, I took care of both at my house. Read More ...

Dos y Dos: Bilingual TV Show for Preschool Kids {Giveaway}

In our last Video of the Week we introduced you to Dos y Dos, the first live-action Spanish bilingual show in the U.S.  What my daughter found the most engaging about the show was the singing and dancing. She was twirling and screaming  around the living room trying to imitate Sofía, Fernando, Adriana y Andrés as they sing away in Spanish and English. The show can be viewed in 45 cities through LATV U.S. Network. No worries if it´s notRead More ...
