My name is Ana, I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia, currently promoting the advantages of an early introduction to bilingualism in California. Those same advantages that once took my career as a PR Professional to the next level, I believe can give any child the opportunity to fully participate and succeed in a multilingual society.
Spanish Plus Me is simply about helping children to spark the Spanish and connect with the language through singing, moving, and having fun.
When I first attempted to introduce Spanish to a group of children, the first challenge I faced was song selection. I decided then to start composing my own songs to teach Spanish with the length, amount of vocabulary, and movement component that I wanted to make the class fun and interactive.
I hope my songs in the album Short + Fun Spanish Beats, will help you introduce your children or students to the second most widely spoken language in the world.
