I’m going to admit something that my husband and I are not proud of – our children are not bilingual.

They should be and we have absolutely no excuse.

You see, my husband speaks fluent Spanish as his mother and many dear relatives are from Panama. Our boys should have begun learning in the cradle.

It is one of my biggest regrets as a mother and one of our family goals for this year – to begin learning Spanish. It is well known that when learning a new language, the earlier you begin learning, the easier it is to do. That means we have a lot of catching up to do.

If you are a parent in the DC Metro area to whom learning a foreign language is important, you will be interested in Language Stars.

Language Stars is play-based, full-immersion foreign language program that opens children’s minds to new worlds.
