Consejos para aprender un idioma

Featured

Algunos consejos en español para que sus hijos aprendan otros idiomas:

En el caso de los niños bilingües se dará la situación en la que su hijo o hija estará expuesto a más de un idioma. Por ejemplo puede que su hijo en el colegio hablé y reciba las clases en inglés, pero en su casa el niño habla español ya que sus padres son españoles. (o viceversa)

Se puede dar también otros casos en el que el niño está en contacto con más de dos idiomas. Imagínese un niño en el que su padre sea francés y su madre española. Y el niño vaya a una escuela inglesa.

Hay diferentes tipos de variaciones y luego también tenemos casos en el que el niño quizás tan solo habla un idioma pero en el colegio enseñan diferentes idiomas.

En otros colegios y también muy especializados las clases se imparten en dos idiomas, colegios bilingües en el que imparten español e inglés.

¿Qué puede hacer usted para que su hijo mejore un segundo idioma?

  • Intente que su hijo este en contacto lo máximo posible con ese segundo idioma.
  • Empiece pronto, en cuanto antes mejor, incluso cuando son bebes. Cuando son muy pequeñitos el niño aprende idiomas sin darse cuenta. Tan solo jugando y con canciones. Los niños son como esponjas y absorben esos sonidos nuevos de un segundo idioma.
  • Lea al niño regularmente si usted sabe un poco de ese segundo idioma.
  • Intente que el niño vea películas infantiles y oiga en el idioma que quiere que aprenda.
  • Intente ir de vacaciones con su hijo a ese país donde se habla el idioma que quiere que su hijo o hija aprendan.
  • Intente que su hijo controladamente juegue a juegos interactivos educacionales.
  • Intente que su hijo o hija escuchen ese idioma alguna vez.

Estos tan solo son algunos consejos hay libros especializados en este tema en el que pueden encontrar mucha más información. De momento les dejo con un ejemplo en el que pueden escuchar una historia corta bilingüe de dos hermanos cuando van a comprar a su tienda favorita.

La historia ha sido leída por un niño bilingüe en español los dos hermanos – español y en inglés The two brothers -english

Escuche en español y escuche en inglés e intente adivinar cual es su idioma más materno. ¿Es el inglés o es el español?

Finalmente les dejo con un vocabulario para sus hijos util para que practiquen tanto en inglés como en español.

Vocabulary – Los dos hermanos

The imperfect and the preterite

Over the years I can see that those two past tenses tend to give to GCSE Spanish students a bit of a headache. Also A-Level students can´t master this properly and often get confused therefore I have done this to clarify a bit this.

If you are not a Spanish GCSE or A-Level student doesn´t matter. It is a very important to understand those two past tenses in order to be able to understand and express yourself so, don´t jump this blog and read it.

The imperfect

Also called “El pretérito imperfecto” in Spanish a lot of times translates as (was, were, doing (as used to do)

This can be a bit confusing and for that reason I am going to state some examples and hopefully will become a bit clear.

Before showing you any example I am going to write down 3 different verbs. As you probably already know in Spanish there are 3 conjugations. We look at the infinitive form and the endings are (-AR -ER and -IR) If all this sounds a bit strange for you, don´t worry look at the following 3 verbs below:

ESTUDIAR      (As you can see “estudiar” – to study” finishes with -AR this means 1st conjugation)

COMER           (As you can see “comer” – to study” finishes with -ER this means 2nd conjugation)

CONDUCIR     (As you can see “conducir” – to drive” finishes with -IR this means 3rd conjugation)

Shall we conjugate those verbs?

ESTUDIAR 

Yo                                 estudiaba

Tú                                 estudiabas

Él, Ella/Usted                estudiaba

Nosotros                       estudiábamos

Vosotros                        estudiabais

Ellos, Ellas o ustedes    estudiaban

COMER

Yo                                  comía

Tú                                  comías

Él, Ella/Usted                comía

Nosotros                       comíamos

Vosotros                        comíais

Ellos, Ellas o ustedes    comían

CONDUCIR

Yo                                  conducía

Tú                                  conducías

Él, Ella/Usted                 conducía

Nosotros                        conducíamos

Vosotros                        conducíais

Ellos, Ellas o ustedes    conducían

I am now going to invite you to follow my following link you can see an excellent comparison and use of both Preterit and Imperfect with plenty examples.

It is also a good blog so you can practise your reading skills and understanding in Spanish. At the end of the day if you are reading this blog and you are studying Spanish you are likely to understand it.
