Achievement get: read an entire book ("Peppa en el espacio") to one of the littles who only speaks Spanish (the little girl who always wants me to read Sesame Street to her because even if she has no idea what I'm saying, she recognizes the characters and repeats their names whenever I read them in the text).
Not sure I got all the pronunciation entirely intelligible, but I'm sure it was better than the little she picks up when I read in English.
@gamehawk Might see if there are youtube videos of native speakers reading them, so you can get the pronunciation correct.
@GoatsLive I figure there will be, yeah, I just haven't tracked them down.
My other new book was 100 First Words in English and Spanish which I went over with one of the other kids who I *thought* was a bilingual second-gen immigrant and her vocabulary is only about as broad as mine. She has a trace of an accent so I guess her family just isn't teaching her anything but English.
@gamehawk My wife still scolds her parents from time to time for not teaching the kids Italian. I grew up overseas so was immersed in many, and get by with 2 besides english. Disservice not to teach your kids if you can.
