How To Watch Peppa Pig in Spanish
First, you must find a streaming platform to watch Peppa Pig in Spanish. The show is currently available on Netflix and YouTube—don’t forget to click the “subscribe” button since they upload new videos every week.
Both streaming options include subtitles in English. On YouTube, however, they’re automatically generated and far from perfect.
On Netflix, you have the added benefit of choosing your preferred accent—whether European Spanish (Spain) or Latin American Spanish. And on both streaming sites, you can slow down the video. This is a helpful tip if your kids struggle with listening comprehension.
But don’t worry! Soon with Peppa, they’ll crank up the speed and maybe even ask you to play Peppa’s games on your phone, which are also available in Spanish!
Additionally, if you’re in Latin America, the Discovery Kids channel broadcasts Peppa Pig. If you subscribe to Discovery Kids Plus (for free!), you can access short clips on its website.

1. Gendered Nouns
Naturally, your kids also need to learn some Spanish grammar. One key element of grammar in Spanish is that nouns have a gender.
Although they’re not physically feminine or masculine, grammatically speaking, they have a gender, and the articles and adjectives you use must match it. Generally, nouns that end in –o or –e are masculine, and those that end in –a are feminine.
There are exceptions, however. Let’s have another look at the body parts words-list:
Tengo una basura en el ojo.
I have some dirt in my eye.
Me duele la mano.
My hand hurts.
Me raspé los codos.
I scraped my elbows.
Empuja con las piernas.
Push with your legs.

2. The Verb Tener
The Spanish verb tener means “to have” or “to be.” One is for possession, while the other is for expressions.
This might sound a bit weird for English speakers, but once you get the hang of it, it’ll make sense.
Common tener expressions that mean “I am” include:
I am hot.
I am cold.
Tengo la razón.
I am right.
I am careful.
Now, let’s go back to our family member word list to see how we can use the verb tener meaning “I have” with them.
|I have a sister.||Yo tengo una hermana.|
|I have a brother.||Yo tengo un hermano.|
|I have a mother.||Yo tengo una madre/mamá.|
|I have a father.||Yo tengo un padre/papá.|
|I have two grandmothers.||Yo tengo dos abuelas.|
|I have a grandfather.||Yo tengo un abuelo.|
|I have seven aunts.||Yo tengo siete tías.|
|I have several uncles.||Yo tengo varios tíos.|
|I have many cousins.||Yo tengo muchas primas.|
|I don’t have any nephews.||Yo no tengo sobrinos.|

Ask your kids about their favorite toys in Spanish and ask them how many they have. This will trigger them to use tener.
Tengo cuatro pares de zapatos.
I have four pairs of shoes.
Tengo ocho libros.
I have eight books.
Tengo un cepillo de dientes.
I have a toothbrush.
Next time they’re cold or hungry, prompt them to say so in Spanish. This way, they’ll learn to use tener expressions. Flashcards and fill-in-the-blank questions are also helpful.
Finally, use this extensive word list with tener to keep your child entertained.
3. The Verb Ver
Ver is even more accessible—it means “to see.” Ver is an irregular verb, and it’s super helpful in everyday life. Let’s go back to the beach vocabulary and see (wink, wink) how we can use it.
|I can see the beach.||Puedo ver la playa.|
|I’m going to see the ocean.||Voy a ver el océano.|
|I saw that there was water there.||Vi que había agua ahí.|
|Don’t look at the sun.||No veas el sol.|
|Have you seen where the ball is?||¿No viste dónde está el balón?|
|Have you seen the shovel?||¿No has visto la pala?|
|I didn’t see where you left the bucket.||No vi donde dejaste la cubeta.|
