Thank you for stopping by and checking out all Spanish Seeds has to offer.
We are two sisters with a passion for bilingualism. We were born in Mexico and came to the United States in 1992. Our first language is Spanish, but we attended an all English speaking school. Thankfully, our parents pushed us to practice Spanish at home. As we grew up, we began to see the importance of being bilingual and knowing two languages in today’s culture. Now, we both teach our children Spanish at home and intentionally pursue our children to be bilingual.
The main question we receive from our friends is, “How can I teach my children Spanish?” and comments, such as, “I wish my children knew Spanish!” We loved giving our friends tips and tricks on exposing their children to the Spanish language - even though they, themselves, cannot speak it. This is when Spanish Seeds was born.
We hope Spanish Seeds provides you with the adequate resources to expose your child to Spanish and create bilingual brains. Please contact with questions and comments. This is more than a box, it’s a community.
