What you can do to help your child with foreign language acquisition

  • Show interest in the language by saying positive comments about the Spanish/French languages and their cultures.
  • Encourage your child to watch movies in Spanish/French. Subtitles are a big help!
  • Encourage your child to listen to Spanish/French music. Basho & Friends YouTube videos are highly recommended if your child is learning Spanish.
  • Speak the language at home, if you know it.
  • Download Spanish/French Mind Snacks apps on smartphones or IPad such as Duolingo and SpanishDict.
  • Encourage your child to go to free foreign language websites to practice grammar and writing, such as:

http://quizlet.com/

https://conjuguemos.com/

http://www.123teachme.com/

http://www.french.about.com/

  • Remind your child the several benefits of being a multilingual person.
  • Remind them that mistakes are part of the learning process, and he/she must be perseverant.
  • Invest in a good Spanish/English or French/English dictionary. For example, Larousse or Robert for French, and Webster or Pocket Oxford Spanish Dictionary for Spanish.
