  10. Lindsey says:

    My son has not been exposed to a foreign language yet. However, I have been looking into different curriculum options, and would love to win!

  11. Tabatha says:

    Currently my oldest son is learning Latin but we would love to continue the exposure to Spanish because they (my oldest and youngest sons) currently watch and love Diego and Dora.

  13. We are a military family. My 4 year old was born in California and when he was 9 months old we moved to Sicily, where we had our, now, 2.5 year old. We didn’t expose them (or ourselves) to the language enough. We are now moving to Mexico City in two weeks and we are determined to learn Spanish! This would be so awesome to kick start the boys language skills (and mine, too!)

  20. Danielle says:

    My daughter has not been formally exposed to another language, but hears plenty in our extremely diverse area. She plays with a friend across the street who speaks mostly Spanish and limited English. They just laugh and run around together and seem to communicate with giggles!

  21. i am already a subscribed reader.

  22. my children did spanish in preschool and sadly that’s about it

  23. i subscribe by email

  24. We are an English-speaking family, but we live in an Hispanic majority community, so my kids hear and see Spanish around them in the neighborhood all the time.

  25. Oh, geez. The language question. See, it’s like this. My husband is a first generation American, so my son learns Flemish and Italian along with English. My father is also a first generation American, so he also gets to learn German. And I had a French minor in college.

    Add in Kai-Lan and Dora and my kid is the FBI’s dream in about 20 years.

  26. My daughter has been exposed to some Spanish. I am able to speak it fairly well (although I am not a native speaker!) and I try to speak to her in Spanish and expose her to television programs and books in Spanish.

  27. I subscribe through email

  28. We live in China so my girls are learning Mandarin.

    My husband grew up in Venezuela, so I’d like our children
    to learn to speak Spanish as they grow. :-)

  32. I subscribe to SimpleMom by email. Great stuff!! :)

  33. We have a 4 year old and two 2 year olds. We have not taught anything formally to them but have worked on Sign Language (ASL)-which I guess isn’t really a foreign language, Spanish and some Amharic (spoken in Ethiopia). We are working with one of our two year olds on English…for him, coming from Ethiopia it’s his third language that he’s been exposed to-so I guess it’s foreign to him. :)

  34. I am trying to teach my children the Greek alphabet.

  35. My littles are exposed to foreign languages on a daily basis. We live in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the United States and hear everything from Spanish to Korean to icelandic.

  38. My kids have been exposed to Spanish. My husband and I speak a little as well as my grandparents.

  39. Hmmm…small bits of lots of languages! We have lived in Korea for the past 2 years, so they were immersed in it, but speak very little. They have visited China, Japan, & Thailand, but again, it’s just the basics of each language to be polite! This would be awesome!!
