It seems like every one of my youngest’s favorite shows is trying to teach her Spanish - Handy Manny, Go Diego Go, Dora The Explorer. This doesn’t seem to be a new thing, I remember Sesame Street trying to teach me Spanish more than 30 years ago. I always wonder how effective that is at teaching foreign language skills as I don’t klnow anyone who learned Spanish from a children’s show. Or is the purpose to reach out to multi-lingual households.
Sorry about that tangent. Here’s my question. - Do children’s shows in Argentina slip in English words and phrases? How about French shows? Russia? Japan? What happens with English children’s programs are translated into Spanish, how are the Spanish vocabulary lessons handled? Anyone know?
