My son is four. Today he taught me Spanish.

"This is how English speaks Spanish," he said. "When you need a hug, you say hugga. Then you say kissa to get a kiss too." Then he walked around identifying each thing he saw in its proper Spanish term.

"Toya. Booka. Shoe-a. Lettera. Trucka."

Too much Diego and Manny and Dora, perhaps? No, he says he learned how to speak Spanish "at the preschool at Sunday school that is not a Christian school."

So now you all know. I believe a few of you may actually think you already know how to speak Spanish--you can clearly see that you were mistaken. Linguistics from a four year old.

Jun. 3, 2008 at 2:02 PM You should hear my four year old speak Spanish.  I can't even translate it to the written word.

It's funny because half of the children that watch Dora and Diego have not mastered English yet. You gotta luv em and give em a "e" for effort.
