After the kids have praised you for your amazing meal you prepared (see yesterday’s phrase!), they can say, ” I want a cookie, please,” to add even more foreign language into your dinner time routine! What’s your favorite cookie? Mine is chocolate chip! Mmmmmmm.
Darian loves to run up to me and say in a foreign language, “I need to use the computer,” and even though it isn’t always a need (cough cough computer games), I usually let him because (1) he asked in a foreign language and (2) he’s extremely strategic and only asks if his chores and school work are done. Like, how can I say no when he’s so on top of things?
I have noticed that once my kids have caught on to some foreign language phrases, they like saying them to their friends as well. It’s just like when they talk about some cool new fact they learned in history; they want to share in their language learning as well. Today’s fun phrase, “Let’s go down the slide,” is a great one to work on with friends!
Have your kids and their friends say this to each other as they take turns going down the slide! Your friends might not be in the same language learning mode as you, but I know that kids love picking up new things! Even if it’s a single phrase. Plus, if the do end up loving it, you can give them your affiliate code to save $15 on the first box and phrasebook, and you’ll get $15 off your next box!

I will never forget when one of my kids, who shall remain nameless, broke my Mac Book Pro. I was so shocked that my Mac Book Pro that I edit videos on, design graphics, and do countless other things with was gone. In an instant.
What’s the worst thing your child has ever broken? Pulling a doorframe from the wall and having a sink come off the counter are high on my list!
Get out the funny Hallmark cards with hammers and flannel shirts on the front! Ha! This week, we are celebrating dad with phrases he would say! As in, these are things Hector says SO much that I couldn’t resist. …
Here’s a fun phrase just for you, Mom! After a week of being home, you’re probably wanting some cleaning up to happen. I know I am!! Why not have some fun with it and say it in a foreign language?! …
Moana is SUCH an awesome movie, right? We’ve put together the lyrics for “How Far I’ll Go,” in German for you along with the music video and English text, so you can understand this version of the song. “Wieder zieht es mich zum Meer…”
