Thomas the Train DVD *GIVEAWAY*




My kids probably watch at least half of their movies in Spanish. Before I buy any DVD, I always search the back of the case for those magical audio options of Espanol! We don't watch a lot of TV/movies in our little family. With the movies we do watch, I feel good when it can give my kids a little more Spanish exposure.


Thomas and Friends has many DVD's in their series and they can be dubbed into Spanish! I have 3 girls so I didn't know how well they would like a story about trains, but when they watched Thomas & Friends: The Birthday Express, they loved it. The story always presents some kind of problem: a present that gets dirty, not knowing what to do for a talent show, etc. My kids stay so focused into the story. As the story is told, the narrator speaks very slowly. I couldn't help but thinking that this would be a good ESL DVD as well. This cute Birthday Express DVD even comes with a little train whistle as a bonus.




I also reviewed the recent movie, Thomas in Charge. Thomas & Friends movies do a great job of letting the trains show their feelings. They feel embarrassed, frustrated or sad. It is a wonderful way of letting your children understand that it is okay to have these feelings and how to deal with them.

Just missed the deadline! I see these draws are regular though.The books are good for adult beginners too if you can handle the fact you are reading kids material.

Learn Spanish for Kids and Family said...

Spanish is the third most widely-spoken language on the planet! There are about 360 million Spanish-speakers. Have fun! Kids will catch on to the language almost as quickly as they catch on with other things. The trick is to provide them with kid-friendly activities in Spanish that will inspire them to learn the language while having a whale of a time! But There are many online DVD and audio’s available for kids and adults. Such synergistic DVD’s are a best way to pick up grammar. Also, you can find many websites that offer video games to help children learn Spanish.
