From the Author:

Dear Parents and Teachers,

You may have noticed that I like reading your comments - I learn a lot from you and take notes for future products. So thanks! :)

As a mom of bilingual children and an expert in early language education, I would like to take a moment to clarify a few things and offer some tips for using the Hop, Skip, and Sing Spanish audio CD:

  • While older children may be able to use the CD on their own, the ideal use is that the parent or the teacher takes the lead and sings the songs with the children. This is the OPTIMAL way for young children to learn a language - that is, interactively with an adult.
  • Indeed, research shows that children under the age of 2 DO NOT learn ANY language from CDs, TV programs, etc. They only learn language from interacting with people. This is why it's even more important that you take the lead, learn the songs and games and just sing and play with your infant or toddler.
  • Preschoolers and older children can learn some language from CDs, but the few things they may learn pale in comparison with what they can learn in interaction with adults. So even in this case, I encourage you to learn the songs and games and sing and play in Spanish with your kids.
  • The tracks on the CD are meant to serve as a model for you. That is why I didn't include any fancy musical arrangements. In fact, the less noise the better as far as language learning is concerned - which is the goal here. I love great music too, but the purpose here is different. That is why I kept it slow, plain, and simple - all on purpose. Your plain, simple voice is the BEST language-learning instrument in the world for your child!
  • So in sum, the ideal way to use this CD is for you to learn the songs and games and use them directly with your children. You can play the CD as well if you want, but the more you use the songs and games using your own voice, the better the results.
  • But don't take my word for it, go ahead and test it with your children or your students! That's how you'll become a pro at teaching languages (i.e. by trying different things and observing the results).
  • In fact, the comments to this and my other products are a great case-study for what works and doesn't work in early language education. You can see clear patterns: people report high levels of success when they go ahead and decide to 'live' the language. People report low levels of success (or no success) when they take the old-fashioned route and just insert the CD or give the books to the kids without enough support. There's tons of tips on how to maximize the experience in those comments!
Also note that:
  • This product is an audio CD, NOT a book (I am sorry that it is not listed properly in the Amazon store). It comes with an insert (a flier) with explanations and lyrics to facilitate its use.
  • Be aware that the Kindle version comes without the audio (I don't recommend it, since this is meant to be an audio CD).

Thanks for reading this important message, and please keep posting your comments and questions.

Un saludo,

Ana Lomba

From the Back Cover:

Who says you can't giggle as you become bilingual?

Make learning Spanish second nature for your child with this activity-packed, 75-minute CD and book--perfect for kids ages two through seven. Listen, sing, dance, and learn Español anywhere, from the playroom to the classroom and even in the car!

Kids will play their way to new Spanish language skills while they:

  • Sing along to household words and funny phrases
  • Learn to salta alto, alto, muy alto (jump high, high, very high) by saying it and doing it
  • Tell old stories in a new way--"Los tres cerditos" anyone? ("The Three Little Pigs")
