I was thinking of learning Spanish and teaching it to my son too. Getting him bilingual toys and things for now then later implementing it into normal conversation..


Any one have advice on teaching kids two languages?

My 6 yr old dd really want to learn more sign language. She knows the alphabet mostly and a few words. She keeps asking to learn more. I've always wanted to Learn more as well so I will probably learn some with her

I'm wondering how to do the same thing. I was thinking of using rosetta stone and looking for bilingual preschools. I've always wished I had learned another language and I feel like I'm missing out on the prime time for my daughter to learn one.

I do not speak two languages. My FIL and my husband's side of the family does speak Italian, though, so my children will probably pick some up here and there. If, however, they are like my husband, they will pick up enough to understand much of it, but not enough to speak it themselves.

depending on where you are, your library should have kids books and videos in spanish, and maybe even a lanague program. 

I had Spanish and French in high school. My oldest has been studying it for a few years now, and now that my younger has started Kinder I'm looking for a Spanish program for him. 

I want us to all learn Irish together, too.

Because of the preschool my children attend/ed they all know English Spanish and French.

I'd say you or someone around him would need to speak it fluently and really good for him to learn quicker.

for beginners spanish we watched dora with her LOL  even my guy who is not familar with spanish picked some up that way.  I learned it in high school and that is formal spanish, not different dialects.  Now my dd chooses to watch most of her dvds in spanish instead of english.  She usualy does not use most of the words though these days.
