Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month With Kids

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month With Kids

We at Languages4kidz think it’s important for kids to gain exposure to languages other than their own early on so they can gain a better awareness of the world and its inhabitants.

The past and present achievements of Hispanic and Latino Americans are woven into the fabric of Hispanic and Latino culture. Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month offers students, parents, and educators an opportunity to explore and learn about the rich history, vibrant cultures, and exciting contributions of the Hispanic and Latino American communities.

We invite you to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month even if your ancestors didn’t originate in Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central, or South America. Learning about other cultures helps children develop empathy and an inquisitive mind.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, here are eight fun ideas for kids to get involved in:


  1. Explore Hispanic and Latino artists

After learning about the works of various Hispanic and Latino painters including Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Diego Velazquez, and Francisco Goya, youngsters may put what they’ve learned into practice by creating their own Hispanic-inspired paintings.

Take a peek at Art with Krista ‘s website for some Hispanic Heritage Months art lesson ideas.


  1. Take kids on a virtual tour

Go around La Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo’s old home, a museum devoted to her life and work in Mexico City.

The history of Latinos and Latinas in the United States is highlighted by the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Latino.


  1. Celebrate by playing games with a Latin flavor

Playing Loteria, the Spanish variant of Bingo, is a lot of fun. Matching words (such as el oso, “the bear,” or la vaca, “the cow,” to their game board is a fun way to teach and practice vocabulary with kids.

Check out some other traditional games for children in La Guia Infantil.”


  1. Discover the rich culture of Latin America and Hispanic festivities

Learn about Hispanic and Latino celebrations and traditions.

Celebrations create connection and fun everyone can enjoy. Plus, experiencing how a culture celebrates is a great way to learn.

Spend some time learning about the many traditions, holidays, and other celebrations practiced throughout Latin America and the Hispanic world.

Learn about how different countries celebrate birthdays.

Plan a birthday party. Make invitations, decorations, a cake, and Pinatas together with the kids.

Create flowers made with tissue paper to brighten the event. Tissue paper originated in Asia, and it was the Spanish colonizers to the Americas who brought it to the West to use in paper crafts. After then, indigenous people started making these flowers to use in church decorations.

Make Güiros. The most famous Puerto Rican musical instrument. Traditionally made from gourd, this percussion instrument sounds unique. They now come in many shapes and materials and are used to make music or decorate.

Create colorful Rainsticks. Rainsticks were believed to bring rain during dry seasons and were devised by the Mapuche people of Chile. Now they’re musical instruments.

Celebrate El Dia de la Raza (October 12) by watching a kids short video about Cristobal Colon y el Descubrimiento de America.

  1. Try the following Hispanic and Latin American dishes to bring some new countries to your table

For the following meals, you can start by having the kids make a list of the things you need.

Migas are kid-friendly and popular in Spain, Portugal, Mexico, and Texas. Families usually have the components. Scrambled eggs, tortilla chips, melty cheese, and pico de gallo make a delightful entrée.

Arepas, the ultimate sandwich, are fried corn cakes loaded with chicken, avocado, and more from Colombia and Venezuela. Tell kids “El día Mundial de la Arepa” is honored worldwide. Kids may enjoy making arepas filled with their favorite stuffing.

Try other recipes from ALLdoneMonkey’s website 


  1. Read books by Latin American and Spanish writers

There is a wealth of literature written by Hispanic and Latino authors for children of all ages. All of the picture books in our collection were created by women of Hispanic or Latin American descent. Both electronic and print versions are available now.

Watch Languages4kids founder and writer Graciela Castellanos read “Me gusta como soy.”



  1. Make plans for a movie night

Kid-friendly films that explore Hispanic and Latino culture are ideal for family movie nights.

“Encanto” is one of my favorites. This film is set in Colombia. Along with the mystical family Madrigal, your children will see Colombian fashion, architecture, animals, and gastronomy. Expect to pick up a few Spanish phrases along the way.


  1. Sing and dance throughout the day

This is an excellent opportunity to introduce children to Latino rhythms. There are numerous songs and dancing steps that children can learn and enjoy.

Some of my favorite songs for singing and dancing are:

La cucaracha by Reino Infantil

La pulga y el piojo by Serenata Guayanesa

La vida es un carnaval

By celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with kids, they can build respect and curiosity about other cultures, build respect for diversity, and deepen their understanding of others.

Enjoy celebrating with your kids Hispanic Heritage Month!

Happy Holidays!

Welcome December!!!

There is a magic flare that surrounds our homes and brings joy to many in different parts of the world. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanza, St. Lucia Day, Three Kings Day, Las Posadas or any of your beloved traditions rejoice at spending precious moments with your loved ones and together create new experiences for the whole family that will become cherished memories.

This time of the year is very special for children at schools. As a teacher you may have a multicultural class with families that celebrate more than one of those events. In our classes and right before the Holidays’ break we always had a special celebration.

With children from different parts of the world, I suggest you dedicate a complete theme to their Holidays’ traditions. Some children will spend the Holidays at home but some others will travel to their countries of origin to celebrate and spend time with their relatives and friends.

You may plan for parents to come to the class and speak to the children about their families’ traditions. Parents are always very receptive and will prepare a short talk about their countries with pictures with their families celebrating the Holidays, and typical snack bites they use to prepare for the occasion. (Use Guide included in the Happy Holidays Booklet below).

Children always love to see their parents participating in their classes and will enjoy the different talks and the food! Children will also learn a little bit more about their classmates and the way they celebrate their traditions.

This is a great opportunity to nurture and strengthen the relationship between parents and their children and to promote respect and appreciation for other peoples’ culture and traditions. Cherish your family traditions, and don’t be afraid to create new traditions this Holiday Season.

Here are some ideas to celebrate!

  1. Invite children to help you wrap up presents.Presents can also help us develop lifelong habits in our children. Let’s use this Holiday Season as an opportunity to prioritize giving above receiving and encouraging children to donate toys and clothes to other children in need. Make the preparations fun so children find joy in celebrating with you the act of giving to others.

2. Create a special place at school or at home where young children can recreate a nativity scene, light a menorah or kinara candles.


3. Encourage children to write a letter to Baby Jesus, the Thre Kings or Santa Claus (Included in the Happy Holidays Booklet below).

This activity can help children improve their language skills and keep them engaged. If children are still not writing paste a white piece of paper on top so they can instead draw and color what they would write.



4. Play some music, sing and dance together! Here are some of our favorites: L4K Villancicos and Christmas Children’s songs.

Navidad, villancicos y canciones de Latinoamerica en Spotify.

Canciones de Navidad de Little Baby Boom.

Super Simple Songs for the Holidays.

Instrumental holiday songs for kids.  


5. Why not let kids learn some useful cooking skills while having fun? Following are some samples of easy and fun recipes for this Season.

Foodbites on Instagram has many fun and easy recipes for kids.

Check out our Pinterest Board on Easy Recipes for kids.  


6. Have kids go on a scavenger hunt Hide a bunch of Holiday items and give children a list. Have them find the most items within a time limit. This is a fun way to get them moving and exploring around the house or in your classes.  


7. Read books together Holiday-themed books are a great way to learn new things about the holidays while spending some quality time with your kids. Grab your child’s favorite book, even if it’s not a Holiday themed book, and cuddle up with him/her for creating cherished memories.  


8. Using household items, basic craft supplies, or kid-friendly playsets, children can create some decorations and hands-on crafts for placing around the house or on a christmas tree.

You can finf lots of creative ideas on our Pinterest Board, Christmas Crafts for Kids or on the internet.  


Last but not least here is our Happy Holidays Mini-Booklet in English and Spanish with activities for keeping the little ones  engaged. HAPPY HOLIDAYS BOOKLET 2022

Songs for kids – Languages4kidz – YouTube channel

Songs for kids in English in our YouTube channel

Check out our YouTube channel with songs for kids in English.

When exposing little ones to an additional language musical activities such as songs, nursery rhymes and finger plays are an excellent resource for introducing a particular theme, develop children’s understanding and continuously build up, practice and reinforce the vocabulary in a way that makes it easy for children to follow along.

Sing songs and carry out the corresponding actions to make it fun and engaging. Even though, children cannot understand everything that is said, they will be learning many words that will form the basis for the target language later in their lives.

I also suggest pairing a song with a picture book theme and singing it after reading aloud to them.

Each of our picture books includes a song at the end that children can learn and sing as they practice the English language.

Music is an excellent way to engage young children because it is a natural and enjoyable part of their everyday lives. It contributes to children’s progress and learning in many different areas and most importantly in the area of language development.

Languages4kidz musical products include familiar songs and melodies, finger plays and nursery rhymes that have been passed down from one generation to the next. Some have been adapted to foster the development of children’s skills in the target language. Others have been created to enlighten vocabulary that are an important part of children’s lives, such as people (family members, teachers, friends), objects (clothing, furniture, cars, bikes), daily rituals (brushing teeth, bedtime), and memorable events (holidays, going on a field trip).

Check out some of the songs in English in our YouTube channel. And if you want to download them to your mobile device in minutes visit our SHOP.

Do you want to start up a new business? 

Do you want to start up your own business?

If YES is your answer keep reading…

We are almost at the end of our summer vacation!

With children soon going back to school, this is the best time for you to get ready to start up your own new business.

Many parents at this time of the year are turning into Google for ideas on how to juggle the everyday challenges they face when trying to balance work and business with children and home life. Although many corporations are making changes to accommodate the increasing demands of parents, it seems that there is still a long way to go.

If you are fluent in English and would like to start up your own business with a low investment, we encourage you to put your talents to work and get excited about sharing your skills with the children in your area. We invite you to be part of the significant rise of “parentpreneurs”, in particular, “mompreneurs” looking to launch their own ventures, with the aim of developing and growing a business around life at home.

Join Mi Primer Inglés®, an educational brand where the product is already developed and the systems and procedures have been written down for you to be up and running far more quickly than if you were starting from scratch and having to go through all of the development stages. We are not a franchise and with a small investment you can become an entrepreneur.

Mi Primer Inglés® will help you in successfully starting up and setting up your teaching business and may well allow you to achieve the flexibility you are seeking. However, building any business whilst caring for or sharing the care of children is a challenge. It requires a lot of time, attention, nurturing and resources to grow and thrive. That’s where the benefit of having an educational brand such as Mi Primer Inglés® behind you comes into play.




Because we believe that…

  • In a more and more globalized modern world in which we live, this is an extremely important time for children to learn a new language. Aside from enhancing their educational experiences and their future careers, learning a new language is fun, it comes easy to little ones and it opens a whole new world to them full of new experiences, a new culture, and new friends.
  • The best time for acquiring an additional language is in the first 6 years of life. There is a “window of opportunity” that we must take advantage of.
  • Parents all over the world are more aware of the benefits of early language learning and want their little ones to be exposed to a new language early in life.
  • If you are one of many individuals out there who speak Spanish fluently, you are a “parentpreneur”, a university student, or a languages teacher, and would like to start-up your own business, this is the best time to start planning.



We offer you a complete program for teaching English to very young children.  Together with the resources for getting ready through a self-paced guidance – “The Basics for Starting-up your Own Business” and the “Home Kits” for children, you are set for a good start.

You and/or your employees can start teaching using whole language in context right away. Our no prep lesson plans save even experienced teachers a great amount of time that can be spent in getting families to sign up, teaching, marketing, hiring other teachers, or finding places to teach.



Our easy-to-use thematic units based on age-appropriate experiences and activities foster a lifelong love for language learning and respect for other people and other cultures.

Mi Primer Inglés® gives children a leg up in their education and their lives.

For parents who value multilingualism – it is a natural fit.

For English-speaking homes, it helps keep the family’s cultural heritage alive.

For you, starting up your own business with Mi Primer Inglés® may be more than changing careers, it may be the opportunity to change your life.


Do you share our passion and values to make a difference in the lives of the children in your community as well as a healthy financial return? Consider joining Mi Primer Inglés® as an entrepreneur.

Owning your own My First Spanish business is a rewarding experience, both personally and financially. Becoming a Mi Primer Inglés® entrepreneur is simple—our owners are people just like you.

Start here and see if Mi Primer Inglés® is the right fit for you.




7 tips for keeping the kids speaking English this summer!!!

Summer will soon be here and with it the end of the school year. For many families, that means their kids’ interaction with the English language slows down. So what can parents do to keep the English learning going this summer?

As an English teacher you may be asking yourself what can parents do to keep the English learning going this summer in ways that are fun and can actually  enhance chidren’s natural language abilities.

With a little English spread throughout the summer, kids will retain what they have learned and go back to their English classes more confident of their abilities.

The key to keeping up English during the summer is finding activities that fit  families’ schedules and are not too complicated.

Here are some tips for you to share with parents on spending the Summer creating precious memories with their little ones while practicing and expanding their English abilities.

These recommendations are for ALL families whether they travel or stay at home:

  1. Enjoy Summer with our Picture Books.

Provide a list of books for summer reading. Languages4kidz Bundles are a great place to start.

Invite parents to:

Cuddle up with their children and read books together under a tree, at the park, at the pool, before bedtime or at any time during the day. Reading is one of the best ways to strengthen children’s language skills. Books allow children to review vocabulary and learn new words and expressions. They can talk about the book and do fun activities related to the theme in the book, such as drawing, puzzles, matching cards, art projects. They can find these and more interactive activities for our books on Languages4kidz website. These activities are FREE.

2. Listen to songs and sing along is another way to add English to their summer. They can listen to songs in the car, on a trip, on their way to their grandparent’s house or while making dinner. Songs are always appealing to young learners and are an excellent way to reinforce what they are learning in their classes. There are plenty of apps and channels in YouTube with kids’ songs in English.

Check out or downloadable songs for kids HERE.

Listen to some samples:


Head and shoulders

Eeency, weensy spider

5 little monkeys

3. Play “I Spy” in the car, at the park, at the supermarket or at home. “I spy with my little eye, something red.”  (A red car.)

4. Open the back door and go camping.

Grab their best camping tent from the garage and pop it open, or get crafty and create a teepee with the kids.

Have kids play some outdoor games while engaging in English:

  • Look at the clouds and find similarities to shapes or objects.  (That cloud looks like a bear. That one looks like a heart.)
  • Engage in a scavenger hunt to keep basic vocabulary fresh
  • Prepare some s’mores together following a recipe in English

5. Watch some movies together.

Kids movies, TV shows and short online videos can be useful to expose kids to the English language.

Disney films have the advantage of being familiar to many kids. They entertain the whole family, are good exposure for younger kids and provide lots of new language.

Short videos for engaging kids in art projects are excellent for vocabulary and for following instructions. With a few simple steps, kids will be on their way to a super fun learning activity.

We recommend the following:

Make a kite by Lets Family Spain and then enjoy flying it with your children

Make play dough with flour, water and salt by Play Doh Kitchen.

Make silly putty by Emmymade extras.

Make a fishing game with magnets, sticks, rings, cotton, floss, wiggly eyes and different colors of felt. When the pieces are ready “Go Fishing” and have fun.

6. Take children on a nature walk and help them collect summer flowers, sticks, rocks and leaves to then use in art and crafts projects. Give them a magnifying glass and encourage them to look for bugs. Review the vocabulary related.

7. Prepare some healthy snacks after reading “Recipes for a healthy snack”.  Pack them in a picnic basket with the Go Fish game you made together and enjoy a fabulous day at the park.


Why teach English to children?

Why teach English...

Why teach English to children?

Today I could not think of anything that is more important for children than learning an additional language and if this language is English, it would contribute to giving them a valuable tool that they can use in different areas of their student, professional, cultural and work life.

The use of the English language has grown throughout the world in recent years. It has become the world’s lingua franca and countries all over the world have adopted its instruction as part of their education system starting in the preschool years.

Parents want the best for their children and they know that one or more languages besides their mother tongue will provide them access to better opportunities. They want their little ones to have access to a foreign language at ever younger ages and when asked what second language would be most helpful for their children, the overwhelming number of parents choose English.

Why is teaching English to children at an early age a good option for me?

With the new advances in technology and the rapid growth of the internet the exposure to the English language has grown tremendously and with it an increasingly interest in introducing this language to very young learners. The English language in education is becoming stronger and growing and filling this niche can mean a unique business opportunity for you.

If you are a professional, university student or you are a mother or father who has a good command of English you can teach your children or many other children through readings, conversations, songs, games and fun activities appropriate for their age.

“MI PRIMER INGLÉS” materials are designed exactly to promote the learning and practice of the English language and at the same time develop reading skills in children.

With “MI PRIMER INGLÉS” you can generate income working independently and anywhere in the world.

Where can I teach English?

Depending on your situation and where you live, you can teach English:

  • To your children at home

And/or other children:

  • From your home: online, as a tutor or giving private lessons
  • Opening your own business/workshop/studio
  • In language academies
  • In preschools or daycares
  • In public or private schools, as part of the curriculum or as an extracurricular activity
  • In a library or cultural center creating and facilitating English workshops

As you can see, there are several scenarios in which you can work, even if you are not a teacher. What is very important is that you should prepare yourself on how to teach children at an early age and accompany yourself with a good curriculum to make the process easier and more productive.

“MI PRIMER INGLES” is easy to implement, with curricula designed to work in any school-based, home based, or childcare setting. With the resources of “MI PRIMER INGLÉS” you will have basic training and an established curriculum designed so that people like you can successfully become an English teacher or entrepreneur.

If you already teach English:

You can use “MI PRIMER INGLÉS” materials as a complement to the curriculum you use. To enrich your classes with the variety of activities that the curriculum offers or to develop and practice vocabulary and language structures with our collections of children’s picture books and interactive activities online.

Note: (depending on the country you are in, a degree in language teaching, education or a certification or homologation of your title may be required).

If you want to teach English to children, what are you waiting for?

Getting a good curriculum with appropriate resources for children becomes a tireless job,  where many spend more time on planning classes than on teaching.

“MI PRIMER INGLÉS” offers you not only the basic preparation necessary to start off on the right foot, but also a complete curriculum with:

  • Digital guides that include thematic units with a detailed description of how to carry out the different activities;
  • Important suggestions and tips;

  • Built-in audios of the dialogues to use and the songs to teach;
  • An Enrichment Activity Booklet for children and;

You are very lucky to speak English. We invite you to be successful using our program with an appropriate methodology and materials.

If you’re interested in opening your mind to new possibilities and exploring an exciting and rewarding career as a teacher or entrepreneur, we’d love to talk with you and see how we can help you!

Spring is in the air! – Spring Curriculum for kids

We all enjoy very much this time of the year!

Spring brings joy with longer and warmer days, beautiful new foliage on trees and shrubs and colorful flowers in gardens.

We love going for a walk and stroll around the streets and spend time at the parks with other families playing and having fun. Using all our senses during this time of the year is a blessing. To hear the birds singing, to see the flowers bloom, to smell the garden fragrances, to softly touch some baby animals and to taste the typical produce nature brings to us during this time of year is just wonderful! Spring is that special time of the year to get more active and willing to explore nature with our loved ones.

During Spring there are lots of holidays celebrated around the world:

Easter, Passover, April Fool’s Day, Earth Day, Arbor Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Cinco De Mayo.

If you want your child to grow loving the English language or if you are an English teacher, Spring is a great time to build up on children’s vocabulary with new words, Spring related books, songs and arts and crafts projects.

Mi Primer Inglés offers a variety of Picture Books, songs  and Curriculum Kits with thematic units related to Spring that are flexible and can be easily adapted to be used with children of different ages.

Take a look at these two English Curriculum Kits. They include a variety of materials in  digital format and can be used by anyone that teaches or wants to teach English to young children.



In Mi Primer Inglés 4 Toddlers 3 we talk about the things we do and celebrate during Spring and the changes we perceive in nature.  The first couple of lessons focus on reviewing vocabulary related to greetings and introductions as well as introducing children to weather related vocabulary. Then we continue with easy vocabulary, basic structures, expressions and actions related to the Spring season.   

We invite children to plant their own seeds, take care of them and watch them grow. We introduce them to the fascinating world of birds, bugs and butterflies.

Children have an opportunity to develop and enrich their English language skills through reading original picture books with beautiful illustrations, engaging activities, crafts and art projects, songs, rhymes and online games.  



In Mi Primer Inglés for Young Children 3 the first lessons focus on plants and how they experience growth and change throughout their lifetime. 

Then we give children an opportunity to explore caterpillars and butterflies, tadpoles and frogs and the changes they go through as they grow.  Activities in these lessons help children  learn about living things and life cycles.

During the remaining lessons in the curriculum children get to understand the basic needs of living organisms,  identify basic life cycles and learn about baby animals, their names and the things they are able to do as they grow.

Mi Primer Inglés 4 Toddlers 3 and Mi Primer Inglés 4 Young Children 3 include:

Teacher’s Guides with detailed lesson plans;

Themed songs, rhymes and finger plays;

3 Picture Books each;

Enrichment Activities Booklets, and

Online interactive activities with puzzle, memory cards, matching, coloring and more.

Follow this link to enjoy the activities online created fo “Spring is here”.

Celebrate March!!!

March is on its way! Let’s celebrate!


Throughout March and all year long:

Music in our schools month -The National Association for Music Education has chosen the month of March to be the time of year to focus on music education in schools all across the United States. Music, poetry, and the spoken word are very powerful tools for helping students learn and retain information.

Check out our collection of books for Spring and enjoy reading with your little ones in English or Spanish.


March 08 – International Women’s Day – A celebration of women’s rights and their contributions to the history, culture and society in the world. I congratulate all my fellow colleagues who continuously preach by example. Those who create a myriad of activities to teach our little ones, ways to contribute and be kind and caring to others. May God bless them all!


March 14th – Albert Einstein’s Birthday – Born on March 14, 1879 and regarded as one of the greatest minds of all time. There is so much to learn about and from him.


March 17th – St. Patrick’s Day – Let’s celebrate by wearing green so as not to risk getting pinched!

March 21st – World Poetry Day – A UNESCO day to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world. Poems can be magical for children. There is a world of poetry out there to explore. You can choose between a clever, funny, or get inspired and write your own with the children. Here are 2 short poems, one in Spanish and the other in English that you can share with the kids.

Los zapatitos me aprietan,
Las medias me dan calor,
El beso que me dio mi madre,
Lo llevo en el corazón.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you!


May your March be wonderful!!!!

Create a fun bilingual playgroup 

Create a fun bilingual playgroup

You can become the leader of a mother/father and child playgroup. 

Photo by Yan Krukov from Pexels

Today I would like to propose to all parents who would like to support their child’s bilingual language development to build a support network. 

I encourage you to invite others who are raising their children to be bilingual to join you in creating a mother/father and child playgroup. 

 The mother/father and child playgroup may be for a one-hour session where mothers/fathers and their children participate in a range of activities that strengthen their engagement, build their language skills and address child development issues. During this session a playgroup leader (that may be any of the mothers/fathers in the group) models a range of interactive behaviors and activities that mothers can ‘take home’ and use with their children in the home environment. You can certainly become the leader in a playgroup.

Mi Primer Inglés offers you the perfect tools for guiding the group into sessions with activities that can nurture language development. Our Teacher’s Packages come with Teacher’s Guides with detailed lesson plans based on thematic units and full of activities, songs, picture books and games that are fun for both parents and children. 

You can find all our digital resources for teaching your kids through “Mi Primer Inglés.”  

Teach your kids an additional language 

Do you want to teach your kids an additional language? 


Then, this is the right time to start planning! 

 If you are interested in teaching Spanish or English to your young child you may be asking yourself many questions: 

  •  What are the best curriculum options? 
  •  How do very young children learn? 
  •  What are developmentally appropriate activities for little ones? 
  •  What types of activities do babies, toddlers, preschoolers and young ones like? 
  •  What if I am homeschooling? 

 If you are in any of these situations, the newly available Mi Primer Ingles Branded digital resources for exposing little ones to English may be the right solution for you. 



Depending on your situation, our resources can help you get a good start. With our easy-to-use thematic units, you can start teaching using whole language in context right away. We encourage you to start giving children all the benefits of an additional language early in life. 

Our new digital curriculum books include complete guides with 12 detailed Lesson Plans each, Enrichment Activities Booklets (printable), audios of the songs, nursery rhymes and finger plays, as well as the audio for dialogues and read aloud of the picture books that accompany each unit. These NEW digital features facilitate anyone with basic knowledge of the language and basic knowledge on how to teach little ones to follow along. 

With our resources children sing and dance along with lively songs that help them develop a positive language learning experience and listen to story books that stimulate their imagination and creativity and gives them a valuable opportunity to follow and acquire the structures and patterns of the target language.
