Why and how to motivate our kids to learn another language?

Why should our children learn another language?

We live in a globalized world. Currently, we can easily go online and meet other people from different cultural backgrounds. Moreover, sometimes having success in life has as a factor having learnt another language. Parents and teachers should know why this is so important and how to achieve it. The following is a list of the most important reasons why children should learn another language:

cropped-printables.jpg

  1. The children can become better students in general.

Learning another language doesn’t mean that our kids will only perform well at that language. In fact, it has been shown that academic performance improves substantially when the young person learns an additional language. According to a meta-study made by researchers at the University of Maine, learning a second language meant that children improved their skills at reading, social studies, English literacy, and even math! And bilingual children will generally score better than their uni-lingual counterparts in standardized tests.

  1. They will be better at if they starts soon.

The sooner a child starts learning a second language, the better he will grasp it. Whether it is pronunciation, grammar, or vocabulary, the newly developed brain of an infant is in top condition to learn things fast and learn them correctly. As the person grows old, so does his ability to learn new languages.

  1. It can give them more opportunities in the future.

A young person that knows two or more languages has a significant greater chance to have more opportunities whether in study or work as an adult. A common example we have today is when people who know Chinese become successful at international trade. Your child doesn’t have to restrict himself to learning Chinese and studying international commerce. Any other language can broaden his scope in the future.

How motivate our children to learn another language?

Learning another language can be something that kids will really enjoy doing if we know how to motivate them correctly. Here are some ways to make the process smooth and pleasant for both us and our kids:

  1. Social influence.

There is nothing more powerful than social influence. When your child sees that other kids are also learning a new language he will be more lured to it than if he were to start it alone. If you have nephews or know about other children who are already in an institute, the best thing you can do is to let your child interact with them. If you don’t know anyone, you can always meet new people who have children who are looking forward to learning a new language too.

  1. Modeling.

If you happen to know a second language already, you can spark an interest in them by showing him how interesting it is to learn one. When they see you reading books in another language, or watching TV shows in a foreign language, they can awaken that same interest in them. If you don’t speak another language, then regularly inviting someone to your home who does speak it and highlighting its importance can also do the trick.

  1. Games

Today there are unlimited games available from pretty much any major language. Whether they are puzzles, toys, or flashcards with the latest cartoons, associating learning another language with having fun can boost your kid’s motivation towards it. One simple game that anyone can do at home is “hangman”. This game will help your child improve his vocabulary while providing him with entertainment.

Teachers and parents should understand that a young one has to be empowered to learn something new in order for him to have the greatest success. Showing him how important (or fun) learning a new language is, can give him an internal drive of his own that will leave parents surprised.

Las Sílabas (da, de, di, do, du) – Syllables

¡New lesson!     “Las Sílabas (da, de, di, do, du)” – Syllables.

 dadedidodu

 

 
A syllable is the smallest unit of speech that occurs in a single vocal impulse. Words can be composed of one or more syllables.

In Spanish, the syllables are most often formed with a combination of a consonant-vowel pattern. The vowel sounds never change and always sound exactly the same throughout the language, thus, words are mastered by mastering syllables.

Simple words related to preschool!

I am participating in http://latinaish.com/spanish-friday/ Spanish Friday, so this post is in English. An Spanish translation follows.

The following list contains words in command form and simple words related to preschool. The objective is to help the teachers that have kids between the ages of two and three, and these kids do not speak English. These teachers must speak Spanish to communicate with them.

One preschool teacher created this list with the words and phrases that she found are the most important, and useful to communicate with these kids. We found her idea to be amazing, and we took the time to create this article to help her and every person/teacher in the same situation.

We are really sure that this list will help a lot to build a relationship between kids who speak Spanish and teachers. Additionally, it will help between the communication of the teachers and the kid’s parents. On the list one will find the English word or command, and next to it one will find the Spanish translation and the pronunciation.

Simple words…

Simple expressions are for example: “Hi how are you?” (Hola, cómo estás?), or “Help me please!” (Ayúdame por favor) and words that you can combine with another to make a really powerful sentence, for example: “I want” (Yo quiero), or  “I like” (Me gusta…), can be really helpful if you plan to travel to a native Spanish speaking country. Moreover, maybe why not being able to interact with some of your Spanish speaker’s friends that have difficulty to speak English or that are learning English.

Last time when I travel to Colombia with our kids, I need to do some shopping and my kids need to be with grandma for a few hours, but grandma doesn’t speak English, so I teach my big son some important words that can help to communicate with grandma.

The most useful word was “quiero”, because he said to grandma… “quiero…” and he takes her hand and shows her what he wants. So grandma understands what he wants, in that way they can begin communicate and interchange some words.

Here is a list of some expressions you can learn, or teach your kids that can help in any situation.

Click on the button to listen the pronunciation:

Hola, Buenos días – (Hi, Good morning) – hola buenos dias

Hasta  luego – (Goodbye) – hasta luego

Dónde está el baño? – (Where is the bathroom?) –donde esta el baño

Dónde hay un teléfono? – (Where is the phone?) – donde hay un telefono

Necesito ayuda! – (I need help!) – necesito ayuda

Quiero… (agua, dormir, jugar, comer, etc…) – (I want…water,  to sleep, to play, to eat, etc…) –

quiero agua

quiero dormir

quiero jugar

quiero comer

Por favor – (please) – por favor

Quieto! – (don’t move!) – quieto

Dame … (la bolsa, los zapatos, la chaqueta) – (give me… the bag, the shoes, the jacket) –

dame la bolsa

dame los zapatos

dame la chaqueta

Vamos! – (Let’s go!) – vamos

The most important part when you don’t know a language is a practice, and don’t think that you will do wrong, take the risk! be confident that you will do good, and the others persons will not be strangers to you.

Don’t forget learn something new every day!

Lectura y dibujo con los minilibros!

Audio – mi mamá y yo

Los minilibros son un gran recurso para motivar al niño a practicar la lectura, ellos se divierten al colorear cada una de sus páginas y adicionalmente son un recurso muy bueno, para aprender un nuevo idioma.

Hicimos la prueba al imprimir uno de los minilibros “Mi mamá y yo”, lo grapamos y lo dejamos sobre la mesa. En la hora de la comida, los niños se sientan a comer cereal con leche. Hoy vieron algo diferente sobre la mesa! que es esto dijo Carlos? un minilibro, yo quiero colorearlo! dijo Esteban, y tomo los colores, cuando se disponía a colorear dijo pero que dice en cada página? Yo no sé leer todavía – Carlos dijo: si quieres te lo leo, si por favor, contesto Esteban. Carlos comenzó a leer en español y cuál fue nuestra sorpresa! leyó casi perfecto en español y Esteban entendió todo con los dibujos y la traducción en ingles que le leía su hermano. Al final de la lectura el pequeño Esteban coloreo el minilibro y lo único que dijo fue: “Mañana puedes imprimir otro?”.

Aprender divirtiéndose es muy buen método, lo invitamos a desarrollar esta actividad en su clase o en su casa con sus hijos. Sería interesante saber cómo los niños respondieron y participaron de esta actividad!

Gracias,

Mini books are a great new tool for kids to practice reading. With the mini books the kids would have so much fun while painting each of the pages of this book. Additionally is a good resource to learn a new language.

We made a test with our kids, the name of the mini book was “my mother and me“ in Spanish “mi mamá y yo”. We print, fold and put it on the table and sat the kids to dinner, and they were really surprise when they found something different on the table a BOOK!  My older kid Carlos asked right away: is this a mini book? WOW I want to color it now, said Esteban the little one, who was so happy; he joins us with colors and crayons. When he was ready to start he saw the letters of the story, and say sad “I don’t know how to read”. Carlos was so happy to be able to assist his brother and proudly say I can help you, I know how to read. We were amazed to find out that Carlos had no difficulty at all reading in Spanish, and relating to the translation in English. They finished the book with just one question: Can you print another mini book tomorrow please?

Learning while enjoying is a great educational tool. Onlinefreespanish invite you to use this activity in your home, class, or library with your children. Please feel more than welcome to share you’re your experiences with your children practicing this activity.

Mes de la herencia hispana — Hispanic Heritage Month

Del 15 de Septiembre al 15 de Octubre, se celebra el mes de la Hispanidad. La razón por la que eligieron iniciar el Mes de la Hispanidad el 15 de septiembre, es porque es la fecha en la que celebra  la  Independencia de cinco naciones de América Latina: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua. México, Chile y Belize celebran su Independencia los días 16, 18 y 21 de septiembre respectivamente.

En Estados Unidos muchos latinos e hispanos han realizado importantes contribuciones a la sociedad logrando importantes éxitos en la ciencia, arte, deportes, política y muchos otros campos.

Existen diferentes formas de celebrar el mes de la herencia hispana. Podemos leer algunos libros a nuestros hijos o alumnos, en Español, o realizar eventos donde los niños puedan compartir su herencia hispana. Por estos días en la escuela de uno de mis hijos realizaron un evento donde los niños debían crear una cartelera en la cual se recopilara su herencia hispana. Fue muy bonito el proyecto, pues mi hijo colocó fotos de sus abuelos, joyas, dinero, la bandera, productos como el café  y vistió para su exposición una camiseta con los colores de nuestro país, Colombia.

Realmente sentimos que nuestro hijo está muy orgulloso de su herencia hispana.

Como hispana, los invito a participar en esta celebración, enseñando a nuestros hijos las tradiciones, la cultura y lo más importante el idioma Español.

A continuación adjunto algunos links importantes de consulta.

From September 15 to October 15 is celebrated Hispanic Heritage month. The reason for chose to start the Hispanic Heritage Month September 15, is because it is the date on which celebrates the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Belize and Chile celebrate their independence on 16, 18 and 21 September respectively.

In the U.S. many Latinos and Hispanics have made significant contributions to the country achieving significant success in science, art, sports, politics and many other fields.

There are different ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We can read some books to our children or students, in Spanish, or hold events where children can share their Hispanic heritage. In the past days, in the school of one of my children made ​​an event where children had to create a billboard which compile their Hispanic heritage. The project was nice because my son put photos of their grandparents, jewelry, money, flag, products such as coffee and dressed for exhibition a shirt with the colors of our country, Colombia.

We really feel that our son is proud of his Hispanic heritage.

As a Hispanic, I invite you to participate in this celebration, teaching our children the traditions, culture and most importantly the Spanish language.

Learn Spanish in your free time by reading 20 minutes a day

Learning a foreign language is a great asset to anyone’s skill set. Whether you learn for your career or just for your own personal reasons, learning Spanish can add enrichment and a feeling of satisfaction to your life. You can take formal classes, play online games, and even buy software that will help you learn Spanish in a timely and efficient manner. However, one simple way to learn Spanish that many people don’t consider is to simply read Spanish articles, books, and other resources. This method is less intensive than a formal class or learning program, but will offer you a more hands on approach to learning than that of other methods.

If you spend 20 minutes each day reading Spanish articles, newspapers, or books, you can increase your vocabulary and gain a much better understanding of the Spanish language through immersion. For example, if you hop on the internet and look up a newspaper from Mexico or Spain , you can read about world events that may already be familiar to you, so the translation and understanding will come naturally. At first, you might want to keep a dictionary handy to help you understand what you’re reading, but in time you will be able to read all sorts of documents in Spanish simply by understanding the context of the words which will inherently teach you the meanings of them.

Traditional Spanish education focuses a lot on vocabulary exercises and memorization, but these methods are very time-consuming and mundane. Rather than memorizing vocabulary and learning words one at a time, reading Spanish for 20 minutes a day will help you to better understand the language as a whole, and how it fits together in one piece. When children are young, they learn words first by association, and then by being read to. Eventually, children learn to read, and only then are they taught vocabulary and spelling classes to help them grow their knowledge of their primary language. This is why learning by association and immersing yourself in the Spanish language is easier to do than memorizing words and their meanings. The brain is already pre-wired to learn this way.

By reading Spanish 20 minutes a day, you will gain a better understanding of the language and how words are used. You can even find articles that are written in Spanish and another language, so that you can assimilate the two to see what the Spanish article is saying. Taking classes or using software to learn Spanish are great tools, but why spend the time and money when you can ready for 20 minutes each day, for free, and learn the same amount, if not more? There are many different ways to learn Spanish, but if you’re a more “hands-on” learner, total immersion through reading 20 minutes a day is often a much faster, more efficient way to learn the things you want to know. You’ll learn to understand an article or a book as a whole concept, and can then dissect the meaning of the specific words on your own.

Learning a second language is a great tool to add to your personal or professional skills; if you could do it in 20 minutes a day, wouldn’t you?
