This week we are using phrases that you might use while in the city! We’ve lived in many places around the world, including large cities like Munich, Germany and Curitiba, Brazil! Although I prefer smaller towns versus big cities, I totally enjoyed our time while we were there! Use the phrase, “Don’t play in the street,” the next time you are out with your kids!
My favorite game to do with family or friends are escape rooms! It’s just so much fun to figure things out and solve a mystery! In another life, I’d love to be a race car driver or someone who solves crimes. Because those 2 things totally fit the personality of someone who loves foreign language? 😆🤷♀️ Use the phrase, “This is my favorite game,” the next time it’s game night at your house!
Tell me… what’s your favorite game to play with friends or family? I’d love to hear some fun ideas!
We moved into a “haunted house” after elementary school. Someone from my brother’s class couldn’t believe we moved in there and had to visit us to see that he wasn’t lying! When it was windy, it would creak and crack everywhere, making it feel pretty spooky! It was a really fun house. I remember being so scared. Sometimes I would hear people walking upstairs in the house, but no one was there. My mom would say, “That was the wind,” but I didn’t believe her. Ghosts, right?! Have you ever lived or stayed in a spooky house?
I love talking about books after we’ve read them with the boys. Asking them, “Did you like the book,” is a great conversation starter. Sometimes it’s a quick, “Yeah,” or, “Nope,” but other times they get into talking about what was great or not so great about the book. Use this phrase the next time you’d like to start a conversation with your kids!
Although you know that Hector is a better cook than me, I can grill a mean steak! There’s nothing better than grilling in the summer! What’s a favorite dinner in your home? The next time your kids take a bite of your cooking, they can practice saying, “This food taste so good,” which might just get them some dessert from Mom! Ha!
We have this wonderful 87 year old neighbor who just loves keeping his yard in perfect shape. It’s his pride and joy! He loves looking at a clean lawn so much that he comes over to our yard and helps us to make sure our yard is looking nice. Sometimes I think I should purposefully leave it more unkempt to give him more to do. Ha!! Just kidding… kind of. Hahah! He really loves it! Use today’s phrase with your kids, “I am watering the flowers,” as you are outside talking with your neighbors!
Has anyone told you that you’re a great mom lately? Well, you are! At this very moment you’re using your time on social media to find a fun and different way to interact with your kids. Learning a foreign language takes time and consistency, but here you are, showing up!
Today’s phrase, “Are you having fun,” can be used in so many ways—not just for a Birthday party! I hope you have fun while you learn this phrase in the language of your choice!
There’s nothing more that makes me thankful for my health than getting sick! I am happy to end this week on a cheerful note with today’s phrase, “I feel a lot better.” Have a happy and healthy weekend!
