I would like my DD to start learning/becoming familiar with a language, am thinking spanish as it is used throughout the world, in particular in USA where we have lots of family.

Can anyone recommend some toddler specific cds to listen to in the car/dvds to play at home accompanied by books please?

Thanks x

hello pavlov, long time no see.

i don't know. i reckon your best bet is to get a spanish childminder.

or try dora the explorer.

lol - dora the explorer is good, but she only learns like one word if she is lucky, with an american accent!!!

How you doing dragon? good to hear from you x

i'm good i think.
too busy to even think about whether i'm ok.

have been offered a job in scotland, am negotiating my pay and it's getting a bit heavy, i am trying to finish a mosaic for an exhibition that starts next weekend in exeter. and our house is for sale, and we have to keep it nice for viewings.

hectic really.

how are you?

Wow, job in Scotland! Good for you! Its hard selling a house isn't it as you can't have any lazy days!

I am ok. I have been quite poorly with hyperemesis but i was medicated yesterday and its made a big improvement already so fingers crossed. Been off work for 3 weeks, probably off for another week.

oh yuck.
i had morning sickness all the way through my 2nd pregnancy. strangely none with the first. but even at normal sickness levels it was grim. hyperemesis must be debilitating.
poor you.

Any one else with recommendations?

I have heard of Muzzy... but know nothing about it I'm afraid... am lurking for recommendations myself...

I think that is the one I was thinking about. I had spoken to someone about it who said it was good, and seen it advertised but could not remember. I looked it up on t'net and it looks good and they are doing a trial. It also means not having to specify language at this point.

I am not necessarily wanting her to learn how to speak it well at this age or anything, but to get familiar with the sounds of foreign words, speak a few words - keep those neural pathways open so she is able to master languages more easily as she grows older!

If I find out anything more I will let you know too smile

I've just put peppa pig on for my 2 year old on the computer (on Youtube) and it came up in Italian, then I found a French one. I was just about to start a new question about how useful it would be to watch it in another language. I'm sure you can get spanish too. Probably most cartoons.
