Have you noticed that certain songs get stuck in your head? Or phrases from songs seem to appear out of nowhere and haunt you for days? This is the magic of music. Looking back on our childhood, we can remember the first songs we heard and learned to sing; they became our first stories. Thanks to the lyrics we memorized, we expanded our vocabulary. We asked more questions to our parents about...Read More
Our family members: we love them, we get annoyed by them and we have fun times with them! Most importantly: we know we can count on them whenever we need them!

Today, let’s learn how to say write...Read More

In Spanish, however, there are different ways to refer to the same concept! Before we start, take a moment to review the basics of Spanish...Read More
My guess is that no matter who you are or where your interests lie, you could probably win the final round of any game show that included famous quotes.
You would not be shaken by “To be, or not to be.” “Houston, we have a problem” would not be a problem.
“Let them eat cake” would be more of a cakewalk than a piece of cake. And, of course, for those who love Toy Story, we all know...Read More
You may be wondering, how fun are flags? Normally, when we learn about different countries, we have to memorize their flags. That’s no fun! But, entering this world of Spanish flags shows us the rich (and fairly bloody) history of each country that they represent.
