I have a ten year old and a three year old. My ten year old son speaks no spanish (horrible mistake on my part) and my daughter understands some. I am trying to teach them spanish but am just not sure how to go about it. I know they say just talk to them in Spanish but what happens when they don't understand what I'm saying? DO I translate and tehn say it again in spanish? For my toddler when teaching the ABC and 123's will it confuse her learning them in both languages?! HELPPP PLEASEEE! I really want to make sure my kids know the language and am desperate for advice!! Wghat has worked for you? My husband speaks to them in Egnlish and I would be the one in Spanish. thnx so much for your support!Answer Question

Yep, the same way you taught them english. Now is the time to do it, while they're young they'll pick it up really quickly. I teach t school where the students speak only spanish when they get there in K4, by the time they get to first or second grade they are completely bilingual.
