Books help you get more immersed in language. A book paints a picture that an instructor never can – children’s books are especially good at this.

    These books celebrate women who broke barriers and made important contributions in their field — from astronaut Ellen When I finish reading a story, I always say, "Colorín, Colorado," and the children finish the saying for me, "Este cuento se ha acabado.". 1. Make technology work for you. You know that you aren’t living in France or China, but your computer doesn’t know that! Immerse yourself and learn technical vocabulary by changing the digital language settings on your phone, camera, computer or TV. In addition to changing the universal settings on your devices, you can change the settings in individual programs, such as your internet.

    But for most of us, we don’t have an entourage of foreign language speakers following us around. A cheap and affordable way to achieve this is to learn it yourself. You can help your child to practice by speaking with them in the language, and as they get older you will understand and engage when they begin to use these new words.   Help your child make time to practice. Learning a language is like learning to play an instrument, says Paula Patrick, foreign language coordinator for the Fairfax County, Va., public schools. There needs to be time to practice. Have your student teach you to say something in the language every day. Explaining is learning.
