MarksvilleandMe reviews ¡Sabor! – Spanish Learning Songs

Let me start with my own language learning and branch off from there. I took 4 years of spanish in middle school and part of high school and then switched over to French for my last two years of school. Matter of fact until on night at the kitchen table when I sat down to help my daughter with her Spanish homework, my husband didn't even know I knew Spanish other then the number because he had met me when I was taking French. So that lets you know how much I used it before my daughter was old enough to need help. 

I am in no way fluent in either language and I blame that on the way we were taught in school. We were told right off we are taught one way, and depending on where in the world you might use Spanish the pronunciation could be different. I always thought myself that we should be learning from someone who speaks the language fluently. 

I can pick up on key words in both languages and a few others I have been around through out my life. I learned a bit of German, Italian, Chinese, and Hebrew or Yiddish from being around people from these backgrounds.

Now that my older children have finished or are finishing up school, I want my younger children to learn languages in a more natural and fun setting. My two grand daughters are learning Spanish as they are growing which in my opinion is the best way. 

When  I received this ¡Sabor! – Spanish Learning Songs almost a month ago and gave it to my children to listen to they were really excited to have new music to listen to, not knowing secretly they were learning a new language. I also play¡Sabor! – Spanish Learning Songs for my grand daughter who listens to Spanish music a lot more then our children and she enjoys it just as much as they do. 

I would love to get my hands on some of the other products, that Whistlefritz has to offer. In case you didn't know they offer both learning for the home and teacher programs for Spanish and French. 

Whistlefritz was founded in 2006 by a mom's passion to teach her children Spanish through engaging, playful, live-action immersion programs. Since  Whistlefritz  was founded it has been devoted to working with schools and parents through our the world to create entertaining and education programs to inspire the love of language in children. 

Learning a second language or more is becoming very important way to communicate with others and something I am glad I encouraged my own children to do. 

Remember ¡Sabor! – Spanish Learning Songs releases tomorrow so check it out and give your child a step ahead in learning a second language. If your child already knows Spanish then this CD full of fun songs will keep them busy singing and dancing the day away. Enjoy.
