Habla Español? Speekee Review and Giveaway

speekee1



 This Giveaway is now closed!

Este sorteo esta cerrado!

Most of you my friends know that I am raising a Bilingual child, my husband speaks to her in English, I speak to her in Spanish 100% of the time but it seems like it is not enough!! C was born and raised in America, we live in a small town with a very small  Latin population.Sometimes I feel like I need more tools to guide C  to practice her Spanish more, she understands and speaks it but I am always looking for other fun ways to do this ,When  I heard about Speekee I knew It would be  something I would like to try, so we did!

[speekee24.jpg]
Speekee TV is an online subscription that offers you 10 episodes of pure Spanish, over 150 minutes of Spanish...how cool is that? Each episode is  16-20 minutes in  length (I like to limit  C's time on computers and tv) and I think this was just the right program for her. We watch speekee two or three times a week.
One of the great features of Speekee is that in each episode your child will hear real Spanish speaking children in Spanish locations.
Speekee is a purple super cute puppet that speaks and sings in Spanish along with two other fun puppets.
Speekee offers  fun songs, you also can download worksheets of each episode and practice with your child.
The subscription for Speekee is $7.50 a month but your first two weeks are free.

What does C think about Speekee?
Well since the first episode Daddy and C loved it, it is a fun show, C loves puppets and this purple cute puppet wasn't the exception, I could tell Speekee motivated C to sing its songs and repeat Spanish words from the episodes, but the lovely thing is C laughs when she sees these two other puppets (Dino and Lupi) giving hugs and kisses to each other.

Will Speekee teach your child Spanish?
I think Speekee could motivate your child to learn Spanish but I don't think  your children will speak fluent Spanish after 10 episodes, maybe Speekee will reinforce some basic words and new songs.
I will invite you to check Speekee's site for more information.

Revision y sorteo de Speekee
La mayoría de ustedes mis amigos saben que estoy educando a una niña bilingüe, mi marido le habla en Inglés, y yo le hablo en español 100% del tiempo, pero parece que no es suficiente! C nació y vive aqui en los Estados Unidos, vivimos en una pequeña ciudad con un grupo muy pequeño de población latina, a veces siento que necesito más herramientas para que  C practique más su  Español, que ella entiende y lo habla muy bien, pero estoy siempre buscando formas divertidas de hacer esto, cuando escuche  hablar de Speekee, supe que era algo que me gustaría intentar , y así lo hicimos!

speekee1
Speekee TV es una suscripción en línea que cuenta con 10 episodios de puro español, más de 150 minutos de español ... ¿No es genial?
Cada episodio tiene una duracion de 16-20 minutos ( me gusta limitar el tiempo que C pasa en la tele o en la computadora , asi que este programa me va  muy bien).
Vemos speekee dos o tres veces a la semana. Segun C lo pida y creeme que si lo hace!Una de las grandes características de Speekee es que en cada episodio  tu  hijo escuchará niños que hablan el  español en localidades latinoamericanas.Speekee es un títere de color morado super lindo que habla y canta en español, junto con dos otras marionetas divertidas.Speekee ofrece divertidas canciones, también puede descargar las hojas de trabajo de cada episodio y practicar con su hijo.La suscripción de Speekee es de $ 7.50 al mes, pero las dos primeras semanas son gratis.

Que piensa C acerca de Speekee?
Desde  el primer episodio a  papá, a C y a mi nos encantó, son videos muy  divertidos. A mi C le encantan mucho los titeres, y speekee (un titere de color morado) no fue la excepcion, me doy counta que a C le gusta mucho cantar las canciones de speekee y se rie a carcajadas cuando los otros dos titeres (Dino y Lupi) se dan abrazos y besos el uno al otro.
Tu nino aprendera a hablar en Espanol con Speekee?
Bueno a mi parecer speekee motivara a yu nino a aprender unas palabras basicas y tal vez unas lindas canciones. Si tu nino hablar el Espanol seria genial speekee para que pueda reforzar el lenguaje y aprender nuevas caciones, pero si tu nino no habla el espanol seria una manera divertida para introducirle el lenguaje de Espanol.
Te invito a que visites el sitio de Speekee para mas informacion.

Nosotros tambien hablamos espanol la mayoria de la vez en nuestro hogar, pero los nenes no tienen amigos con quien practicar. Yo se que Speekee seria divertido para mis ninos. Gracias por la oportunidad de ganar! Thanks for the chance at winning!

My children would love to watch Speakee TV because they love watching Dora and run around shouting whatever Spanish phrase they learned for that day. Speakee TV looks like it will give them more opportunities to learn Spanish that they can actually use.

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

Whenever you feel stuck with your article writing and are facing the typical writer's block, you should go with the 'brain dumping' method where you write as fast as possible without thinking twice. This way you break the inner wall that stops you from speed writing, and put every single idea that you get on paper. The grammar, spelling, and all other things related to proper writing will be ignored - just write fast and furious! You will be utterly astounded by all of the content that you come up with what you have put all of your article content into written format. Later on, you can use re-structure and proof read this article to make it presentable.

Yes, we know that so many people hate writing, and if that is you then you obviously have to outsource or work on overcoming these blocks.
