  1. I just wanted to share, that my mother was a teacher and taught me how to read in Spanish when I was 4 years old. I went on to learn how to read in English through an ESL program in Kindergarten. Knowing the Spanish alphabet helped me learn the English one quickly and I was the youngest in the class but the first to learn how to read in English.

    I went on to be an English major and I have a BA in English and a Master's in Publishing. Not saying how you should teach your children, BUT I am an success story in that I learned how to read Spanish first then English later.

  2. Raquel! That is so great! I have been reading more and more about how learning to read in your first language is crucial for future success in reading in a second one. I wish more schools would understand this vital concept when dealing with their preschool and elementary aged students.

    With my daughter being English dominant, I am more convinced than ever that by teaching her to read well in English first will help her to successfully learn how to read in Spanish (and possibly other languages)in the future.

    Thank you for sharing this!!!
