BEM idiomas Summer is certainly in full swing, just the way we all like it...well most of us anyway! This summer, my six year old daughter has been enjoying many days playing with her spanish friends, either at her skating classes, on the beach, at each other’s houses, at ferias, playing up and down the Paseo.. the list is endless. One thing I have noticed is just how much spanish I have understood just by listening to the children talking and playing. The one thing that has really surprised me is how much I have understood when the children are talking over each other. Last year this would have just sounded like a jumbled mess of words. This really feels like another step in the right direction for my spanish progress. Now I have to concentrate on understanding the elder generation – which is not such an easy task! Something else I have noticed recently is how the spanish children are really interested in understanding what I say to my daughters in English, and that they are starting to want to learn English at such a young age. The good thing for them, at six and seven years old, is this will be a much simpler challenge than for me at 34. For them it isn’t classed as work yet, but a fun activity... Oh if only !
