3 Steps to Using a Foreign Language with Your Family

I know that when you can really use a foreign language, not just “study” it, your life and your family members’ lives will change. 

That’s why our mission at TalkBox.Mom is:

Life Changing Results 💪👏🏽

Everything we do is to help you and your family really use a language together because we know when you can use a language, new opportunities will open up in your life that will change your life.

Like, a new mom from Japan, who doesn’t really speak English, might move into your community, and because you are learning Japanese, you’re there to help her with this transition by becoming her friend, using Japanese together, and even helping her with her English.

Or, your daughter, who wants to grow up to be a nurse, will be able to lead a whole team and work at the hospital of her choice because she’s able to use Spanish easily with all of the patients.

Or your spouse, who is just along for the ride, finds himself making more connections with a work team in China because they love hearing about what he’s learning and how he’s using Chinese with his family, and now they want to do more projects with him.

Your life won’t be the same if you take the steps to use a foreign language with your family.

🧐 But what are the steps?

How are thousands of families changing their lives with TalkBox.Mom?

How are moms like Isabella, who studied French in school, now becoming CONFIDENT French speakers?

Or Maria whose kids never responded back in Spanish and are now talking in Spanish non-stop?

Or Liv’s husband who is making new connections at work because he’s speaking Japanese with his family?

🎉 It’s really simple. 

Here’s it in a cute diagram because at TalkBox.Mom we do everything cute. Of course.

STEP 1

First, you need to choose a phrase from your guide–either your box, academy challenge, phrasebook, or Home School Phrases. (But a full phrase. Not a word. Because we’re not cavemen.) Choosing a phrase is important because it gets your whole family on the same page. Everyone knows what phrase you are working on together. This is especially important for native speakers who often skip over this step, catching their family off guard and causing unintended overwhelm. 

STEP 2

Second, we practice the phrase. What does this look like? First, we announce what the phrase is in English, so every family member is on the same page, and it feels super easy. Then we practice the phrase with the native speaker audio–not worrying about our pronunciation because it takes weeks to months to start hearing the sounds. After this, we ask our kids if they remember what the phrase means and try it one more time.

The next step to practice a phrase is practicing that phrase in a situation. For example, saying a phrase how you would say it when you wake up. Or pretending to wake up and say a phrase. Once we practice it in a situation, we train our brains to start using it and increase our level of fluency. 

Because, mama, the whole goal here is fluency. Fluency is hearing something said in a foreign language and understanding it WITHOUT translating it to English. And TalkBox.Mom starts with fluency. 

STEP 3

The last step is actually using the phrase while life happens–even if you have to “cheat” by looking at your guides that are up or playing the phrase again in the app.

By following the TalkBox.Mom Proven Process, this super simple process, thousands of families are using new languages together, and some, who admit they were scared to start at first, are now doing multiple languages.

But here’s the thing. Even though it is simple, even though we give you all the tools in our language guides, you do have to put in the work.

And people who put in the work will change their lives.

To help you stay on track and check all the RIGHT boxes, we created a new tool for families who want extra help going through this process.

It’s pretty. It’s fun. And It’s practical. Just like you!

It’s the TalkBox.Mom Phrase Planner!

The Phrase Planner holds your hand to give you extra guidance through the TalkBox.Mom Process every day for every phrase, helping you do what’s most important instead of getting distracted by things that are less effective. The Phrase Planner is here to help you stay on track and make the progress you’re dreaming of!

This week only, until Saturday at 11:59 PM CST, you can order your first $80 box with the $30 Phrase Planner and get your $35 phrasebook for FREE. 

This is how you do it. (You do need to do it in this order.)

  1. First, choose a language you would like to learn with your family, and add your  $80 box to your cart. You can start with one box or pre-order more. Then you can have your boxes come monthly, every two months, or every three months. If you like, you can pause your subscription after you sign up to manually choose when your boxes come. There is no fee, and it’s indefinitely on hold until you want your next box.
  2. Next, the checkout will ask if you want a phrasebook for $10 off. Click, “BUY” But remember, we are going to change out the $10 coupon for a $35 coupon to get the book for free instead of for $10 off. (Only one coupon can be used at a time.)
  3. You’ll be in the checkout, so just type in your URL talkbox.mom/planner and add in your Phrase Planner.
  4. You can then go to your cart and checkout. Type “starttheparty” in the coupon field. You will see the $10 coupon switch to a $35 coupon. (Again, coupons can’t be combined, so the coupon with be updated with the higher discount.)

If you are starting multiple languages, you will need to checkout twice. Note, if you add the planner first, it won’t be in your cart after choosing a box, so add it last!

Your box, phrasebook, and Phrase Planner will be shipped to you. And you will have access in the app for all the phrases in your box and phrasebook. It’s linked to the email you check out with!

But wait, there’s more! 🤩

You will also get a digital copy of the Phrase Planner, so you can immediately start using it with phrases from the app. So before anything ships, you can get started and join our private community just for TalkBox.Mom families where we do weekly trainings, giveaways, and daily check-ins to help you be successful. 

Are you ready to change your life?

Because we’re ready to give you the tools to start talking and cheer you on!
