Ep. 57 – 5 Things to Try This Weekend

Hola Chicos!

We have a mini-episode for you today that will hopefully inspire you to try something new! These are our 5 favorite things to do when we need some inspiration to practice and use our Spanish. Try 1 or all of them and let us know how it went!

Ep. 56 – First time taking group lessons

We are officially back in Spanish classes! But this time, we’re going separately. Not only that but this time we’re doing group sessions with up to 4 other people which have been a new and fun experience. In this episode, we share all about how the classes are going as well as some other recent adventures including a TON of new vocab.

Ep. 55 – Feliz Año Nuevo

Feliz Año Nuevo!

We start the show and the new year off with what we are looking forward to doing this year. 

It was just 3 years ago that “learn Spanish” was one of our New Years resolutions and we made it happen!

If you are just starting your journey into learning Spanish or have decided to make the commitment this year, then this episode is for you.

We share the steps we took to get started and what has really worked for us. The most important, how we progressed so fast.

We share our language learning goals we set for this year. Starting with we enrolled back in Spanish classes!

Ep. 54 – Our Year in Review

Nuestra ultimo episodio del año!

Another year that we have completed podcasting our journey to become a bilingual family.

It had it’s excitement and challenges and we recap it in this last episode of 2017.

Ep. 53 – Habla Solo en Español?

We are back this week after visiting family and have some thoughts and feelings on how our family reacted to our son speaking “solo en español”!  Our road trip brought on some opportunities to come up with games to play in Spanish and songs to sing.

Ep. 52 – Lost In Translation

We catch you up on our week full of excitement (we won a Tesla car!) and challenges keeping up our practice when life gets busy. We have a funny story where an important message about our son Jack got lost in translation. Jennie shares what she has come across while disciplining Jack in Spanish and how expressing in a new language is challenging.

Ep. 47 – Break for Summer

It’s been almost a year since we started this podcast. Amazing how time flies! We’ve loved sharing our story with you along the whole way. As we looking to grow and expand the show we’re going to take a break for the summer as we look into other options (Instagram, YouTube, etc.)

Ep. 37 – Hello Talk

Thanks to Lalo we recently discovered a fun new app called Hello Talk which has been a ton of fun so far. It’s sort of like having a pen pal from another country that is trying to learn your language, and you theirs. So you can chat back and forth as well as correct each others messages. It’s a whole new experience for us that we were excited to share.

Ep. 30 – Niño Hablar

Lately we’ve been really focusing on helping Jack learn to speak. Like all parents we’ve read way too many articles on the internet about this which basically just confuse the issue. In this week’s episode we talk in depth about this and share our new words.

Ep. 24 – Learning a Language With Your Spouse

This week I (ben) do a solo episode talking about learning a language with your spouse. It’s not all sunshine and roses so here I’ll go into some of the ups and down that we’ve went through and how we’re making it work. Enjoy!
