7. Think comida!
Food is another way to entice language-learning. Next time you dine at an old-style Latino or Spanish restaurant, ask the staff if you can take home some of their paper menus. Then, use them with your beginner at the dinner table to practice ordering food. These props can also be used for pretend play for the little ones. You can also find the recipes online and create meals from the menu right in your own kitchen. And wouldn’t your child be thrilled to create his or her bilingual cookbook with these recipes?
