Winter activities for Spanish class

 It’s almost holiday break and even though it’ll be a little different this year, we can still feel the excitement in the air.  The lights are up, trees are decorated and people are finding new ways to celebrate.  We’re excited to announce that we finally have our very own Christmas and New Year's song for kids in Spanish!    It’s something we’ve been working hard on and we’re happy to have it out just in time for the holiday season.  We wanted to make a song and video that you can use in your Spanish classes to introduce cultural customs of Spanish speaking countries while practicing natural language and pronunciation by singing along to a catchy tune.  While the Christmas celebration is very similar to ways students will celebrate, the New Year’s Eve custom of eating 12 grapes to have good luck in the new year is something new for many Spanish learners and exciting to learn about!  We wanted to create teaching resources that we hope will provide you with an easy and very visual way to teach culture in Spanish classes for kids.  If your class is interested in the custom of eating 12 grapes at midnight, you can find more teaching ideas here

Learn Spanish with Rock A Lingua

Hola amig@s!  Spring is in full force and while a lot of parts of our normal life are canceled, we’re happy to see that so many people are spending time outside, especially on sunny days!  We’re well aware that this period is not the same for everyone and our only hope is that as a whole we’re able to find some space for positivity and growth throughout this new situation.  Here at Rock A Lingua our current focus is on how we can help make this time easier for teachers, kids and parents, and to ensure that everyone who wants to can keep on learning Spanish throughout this time.  Our recorded classes are filmed each week and our goal is to keep them interactive and build on themes throughout the week making the language learning process entertaining and meaningful to the students.  We’ve been thrilled to see how many of you are tuning in and practicing Spanish with us each week :)!
