Have you ever wondered how to learn more Spanish vocabulary words, but you aren’t interested in sitting down with a bunch of flashcards? I’m a busy mompreneur of two active kids and like you I don’t have any extra time. So here’s my tips on how to enhance your child’s learning, increase your own Spanish language learning, and fit all of this into your busy, active life!
If you’re like me and multi-task, you cook dinner, pay the bills, throw in a load of laundry, all while planning your kids’ extra curricular activities and coordinating pick ups, drop offs, and any other errands you need to get done. So, why not put on some Spanish music in the background, you know the cool latino rock song, the salsa mix, or the country tunes that you can belt out while you run around the house and no one is there! Or turn on the kitchen TV and change the audio to Spanish. You’re not really watching in anyway since you’re doing a million other tasks around the house. Just turn up the volume loud enough to hear the spoken Spanish and see if you can pickup a couple of phrases or Spanish words to add to your aresenal!
Next time you’re out shopping at one of the big box stores, pay attention to the signage. Nowadays, they usually have everything written in Spanish and English, so take a few extra seconds and read the sign, first in English and then in Spanish, and then in English again. Try to remember a word or phrase for next time. This is a good way to add some Spanish vocabulary words to your continually growing Spanish dictionary inside your head. It takes repetition, so just keep practicing over and over again!
