¡Hola amigos!

We have a new video, perfect to practice introductions these first school days. The video is called ¿Cómo te llamas? and  teaches ¿Cómo te llamas? ¿Cuántos años tienes? ¿De dónde eres? and ¿Dónde vives?

Your students are gonna love it!

¡Hola amigos y amigas!

I can't believe Summer is almost over! I hope you all had  a great break and that you were able to recharge your batteries because believe it or not a new school year is here!

But do not panic, here at Rockalingua we have been working on new Spanish teaching materials for kids that are perfect for the first weeks of school, so stay calm, we have you covered ;)

We have been working on new topics like school objects and subjects (watch video here and listen to the song here) and Spanish greetings and daily routines (video, song, worksheet, picture dictionary)

What a great way to start the year! Our games about colors, numbers, parts of the body and feelings are already working on IPADS and of course computers. Now your students can learn and review Spanish through play! They are gonna love it!
All the other games (daily routines, days of the week, means of transportation, etc...) will be available next week!

¡Hola amigos y amigas!

It'ts been a while since my last post but I have great news! I have been recording 11 new original songs that will be redy to hear on our website very soon!

Some of the topics that the new Rockalingua's http://rockalingua.com/songs Spanish songs for kids  cover are: the fall (already on the web) weather, the house, prepositions, personal pronoums, fruits, schools objects and subjects and much more!

I want to share with you a couple of activities  to review colors that my students really like.

This are basic activities for beginners but I have seen students in middle school and high school having problems recognizing colors so you can do these activities even if you are teaching upper grades. IT IS NEVER A WASTE OF TIME TO REVIEW BASIC BUT IMPORTANT VOCABULARY!

Ever since I started teaching Spanish a few years ago I always had a difficult time finding good materials to use with my students. The text books I found did not follow a coherent teaching sequence and they did not meet my students needs at all. Most materials were boring and they lacked good ideas or fun illustrations to engage my students. Spanish was not a mandatory subject at public schools so there was not a huge market for publishing companies to invest in Spanish teaching materials. So there we were, us Spanish teachers left alone....

¡Hola amigos!

My name is César, I am a Spanish teacher and musician from Spain currently working in San Francisco. I am very excited to welcome all of you to the musical world of Rockalingua. At Rockalingua we have been working non stop, Monday through Sunday, to have our Spanish educational website ready to ROCK this school year!

The Rockalingua Story:

Since I started teaching foreign languages 11 years ago, I have found music to be the best teaching resource no matter what grade I taught. I used to teach English as a foreign language in Madrid and I used a lot of educational English songs that covered all sorts of topics.
