Sing-A-Lingo is a music CD that helps children learn Spanish. I guess the title gives it away, but it’s not a boring speak and repeat CD, instead it’s done through music, catchy music that will have you and your children singing right along(0). The CD is actually titled En Mi Casa (In My House) and all the lyrics are in Spanish.
You will find English though, on the cover of the CD and it teaches you, the parent, the lyrics. Go ahead and share them with your children. Maybe you fill them as they’re singing, say a word or two in their ears. Make them giggle when you tickle their ears! It’s all about fun and the learning will come along easily.
Of course, Sing-A-Lingo is just a start, but it’s a great way to get your children interested in learning Spanish. Follow some of the tips offered by Pina and Michael Madera, the co-founders of Sing-A-Lingo. They suggest that you incorporate Spanish words into your everyday language and provide links to other sites that provide help with learning another language.
The songs on En Mi Casa are memorable. You’ll be singing them long after the CD is off, which makes perfect sense when you’re trying to learn a new language. They also use common words about every day tasks, like “Start Dancing”, “Wash Your Hands” and “Good Night”. There’s also 3 classics – “Mr. Sun”, “Little Monkey” and “Itsy, Bitsy Spider”.Ã‚ All songs, except the classics, are written, sung and recorded by Pina and Michael Madera with the intention of them being used to help your child learn Spanish in a meaningful way.
My daughter and I had fun with the CD. She is still saddened about her school losing their Spanish classes because she enjoyed becoming bilingual. When we listened to the music, she was able to remember many of the words. I don’t know any Spanish, but through the songs and their fun melodies, I found myself picking up on words quickly. We plan on taking this with us in the car to listen to over and over. We did that already, so it would be over and over and over again!
You can purchase the CD from Sing-A-Lingo, tee-shirts, learning kits and tools. The CD is $14.99.
