We are just getting started on learning Spanish. When it comes to learning a second language, I think the key is start as young as possible. Starting now is great for Damian, but I wish I had gotten to it sooner for Rylan! When the boys get a little older, I think we will use Rosetta Stone , but for now we are starting with a basic introduction into the language. I am looking into various curriculum possibilities suited for a young age group (if any of you have recommendations, would love to hear them!), since I do not speak Spanish myself, I definitely need help from a curriculum. In the meantime we bought the DVD Spanish for Children, which provides a basic introduction, teaching greetings, colors, numbers, and animals. I actually really like it, and both boys are picking up words quickly from it. My only gripe about the DVD is that for the price ($13.99) I think there should be more to it. It is REALLY short.
To add a bit more fun to the color learning, I made this Spanish color matching game over the weekend for the boys to play with. I used a dinosaur theme, since they both love the dinos! :) If you would like to download the game, just click here.
