Preschooler Learns Spanish

Experts say the best time to learn another language is as a child. If a person learns a second or third language when they are young, and learns it from native speakers, they will learn to speak it without an accent. A "foreign" accent comes from the difficulties of overcoming the details of how you learned to speak your mother tongue. A number of experts attribute this proficiency to physiological changes that occur in the maturing brain as a child enters puberty.

This video introduces your preschooler to the Spanish language in an entertaining way. For ease of understanding, visual images connect the spoken word to the actual item. The narrator then pronounces each item aloud in both English and Spanish. Children will view the object or action, then hear the name for it in both languages. The video introduces basic words that relate to family, food, nature and animals, actions, transportation, numbers and colors, parts of the body and everyday objects. Along with the images, classical music helps to make learning as enjoyable as possible.

A foreign language opens a whole new cultural world to your child. Teaching your children a second language will provide them with the skills they need to succeed in the future, and this item shows the process can be an enjoyable opportunity for families. This video is a wonderful tool to helping them learn Spanish at an early age.
