Cuando digo que voy a preparar tamalitos de maíz

donde brota la planta de maíz
al sembrarse el granito
en la Madre Tierra.

Both of them are giving me the opportunity to reflect on best practices in teaching to help me help them with a specific issue. The first, an eight year old whose ability to recall needs improvement.

I'm sure everyone has seen a commercial or heard a discussion on raising kids from a very young age to be bilingual. While many of these DVD and CD sets are marketing and capitalizing on our desire for our kids to be the shining star of their school, they really do have validity. Our brains are wired to best absorb language before the age of 5 and still ready to take on language up until the age...

When you learn Spanish there are a couple of recommendations:
1.- Know your English grammar.- Most students have no idea of grammatical functions. When they start studing Spanish and the teacher talks to them about pronouns, direct objects, adverbs and so on; they feel lost and confused. Its hard to understand how a pronoun works in Spanish...

I've always heard of people who are "naturally adept" at learning another language. You hear about someone who picked up German, Japanese or Spanish in a few months without really studying a language, individuals who just listened and learned without every struggling or working on their language skills. While this sounds good, I've never actually
met anyone who learned a second language...
Colors & articles of clothing told through a funny story about a blind date. This is from the third day of my introductory Spanish class.
Differences between articles in Spanish. In English, we only have three articles: a, an, the. In Spanish, there are six: un, el, los, una, la, las. This video explains the differences between them.
