Tu hablas Espanol?

Do you speak Spanish? I'm trying to teach my kids Spanish but with my older ones they don't speak much at all and have no interest. My mother is only speaking in Spanish to them. They look at her like "Que"? What? LOL

  • That's funny :) I speak Spanish but I don't speak it much around my daughter. I've taught her a little bit but if she's speaking to her family that Speaks Spanish, she just looks at them at nods or shakes her head and looks at me like they're crazy! lol

  • I can speak spanish, I just prefer not to. I took 5 years of spanish in school and worked in a restaurant with tons of spanish speaking people. My kids school has spanish class once/week so they are learning a little, enough to get by anyway.

  • op, in order for them to grasp it really well, it has to be taught as they start to speak, they will never forget that first language, and English will always be a breeze for them. Your mom's endeavour will pay off as long as she is consistant.

  • Teach away! I live in Texas and I know my son will need to learn it. It's hard to find jobs out here without knowing spanish. It will be a major advantage to them when they get older :o)

  • We spoke to my child in spanish only since birth. He learned how to speak it fluently. He is now 3 yrs old, and he is now learning english. It has been a breeze for him and will be fluent in both english and spanish once he starts school.

  • I can usually understand and make myself understood, but it's textbook spanish not native speaker spanish so it's not perfect.
