Teaching a second language through culture

We received a bundle of clothes for the girls from a dear cousin.  As we were going through the bag, my daughter said, “Look, Malambo pants!”.   I stopped and thought, “What is she talking about?”  She was talking about this yellow pants that are very loose on the legs and that look a bit as a skirt.



She was remembering that when we studied Argentina, we talked about Malambo and La Zamba!  She remembered El Argentinian Gaucho that stomps and dances to the Malambo rhythm.  We studied Argentina at least a year ago, and she still remembers Malambo and Gauchos.


How fun is to travel to places without going anywhere!.  How fun is to study Spanish through cultural experiences!.  Did you know that immersion now a days can be a done deal thanks to the internet?

I have three questions for you

  • How do you teach other cultures to your kids?
  • How do you immerse your kids in other cultures?
  • How do you teach them the second language?
