Habla Español? Boca Beth Review and Giveaway


This Giveaway is now CLOSED!!

BOCA BETH - Home
I had the opportunity to review the Boca Beth DVD "I Like Animals/Me gustan los animales" that came along with a  Bilingual Language Learning Color/Activity Book. The first time I played the dvd for C , she seemed to be  very into it, but she lost interest after half of the show. Days after that C asked me to play the Boca Beth Animals dvd for her, she started singing the songs and repeating  words from the show.She says she likes it.

But what is Boca Beth?
Boca Beth is a bilingual (Spanish-English)show for children, showing other children singing and dancing in the show along with a yellow fun BOCA puppet, it's cute!

About the Coloring and Activity Book?
It shows the Boca Puppet, some animals and things around the house including  food with bilingual labels on  each page ready to be colored. The last page of this book shows you a list with 43 words in Spanish and English  with the pronunciation Kit (which I think it's very cool for a family who is just starting the language).

What do I think about it?
Most of you know that C is a bilingual child, very fluent in Spanish and English, I found the Boca Beth program a fun show for children who are starting to learn Spanish  or even children who starting to learn English, C is very advance for this program, like I say in the paragraph above this program uses very basic words, names of diferent animals and few verbs. If I could change one or two things, the first would  be the back ground. I think showing a  natural scenery instead of a studio background  with children playing naturally would be more fun and exciting for the children watching it. Second is the puppet, I will like Boca to  interact more with the viewer but on his own screen time.
But I like the idea of having Boca Beth as a part of our dvds to play from time to time and refresh C's spanish from time to time, maybe once or twice a month.

Will  Boca Beth teach your child Spanish?
I will say Boca Beth will help your children to pick some words in Spanish but I am not sure if your children will start speaking spanish fluently by watching the show.
I think it could be a  start and motivation for the family to play Boca Beth and learn some daily basic words in Spanish or English.
From my personal perspective children need to speak, listen and interact with the language on daily basis to be able to learn it.
I will invite you to check Boca Beth's site and try the program to get a better idea.

Habla Español? Revision y Sorteo de Boca Beth


BOCA BETH - Home


Tuve la oportunidad de revisar el programa  Boca Beth en dvd"Me gustan los animales /I like the animals" que viene junto con un Libro de actividades. La primera vez que puse el dvd para C, ella parecia estar interesada en este show, pero perdió el interés después de la mitad de la serie. Días después  C me pidió ver el show  Boca Beth por segunda vez , ella comenzó a cantar las canciones y a repetir las palabras del programa .Me dijo que le gustaba.

                I Like Animals/Me gustan los animales DVD for kids         Boca Beth Bilingual Language Learning Color/Activity Book

Pero  que es Boca Beth?
Boca Beth es un programa bilingüe (Español-Inglés) para niños, que muestran otros niños cantando y bailando en el programa junto con una divertida marioneta BOCA amarillo, que es lindo!

 Sobre el libro de actividades?
Muestra dibujos de la marioneta Boca, algunos animales, cosas de la casa, incluyendo los alimentos con etiquetas bilingües en todas las páginas listas para ser coloreadas. La última página de este libro muestra una lista con 43 palabras en español y en Inglés con el kit de pronunciación (que creo que es muy bueno para una familia que está empezando el idioma).

¿Qué es lo que pienso de ello?
La mayoría de ustedes saben que C es una niña bilingüe, muy fluida en español y en Inglés, encontré al programa Boca  Beth un espectáculo divertido para los niños que están aprendiendo el Espanol  o incluso que empiezan  a aprender el Inglés, C esta muy adelantada para este programa, como digo en el párrafo anterior, este programa utiliza palabras básicas, los nombres de diferentes animales y algunos verbos. Si pudiera cambiar una o dos cosas, la primera sería el escenario donde muestra a otros ninos cantando las canciones y diciendo palabras, en mi opinion personal seria mejor mostrar un paisaje natural, en lugar de un estudio,con los niños actuando naturalmente, sería más divertido y emocionante para los ninos que ven el show. El segundo es el títere Boca, me gustaría que  Boca interactue más con el espectador.
 Pero me gusta la idea de tener Boca Beth a la mano  como parte de nuestras opciones para que de vez en cuando  C vea este programa y le refresque el vocabulario, tal vez una o dos veces al mes.

Boca Beth puede lograr que tu hijo hable el Español?
Voy a decir que Boca Beth ayudará a sus hijos a recoger algunas palabras en español, pero no estoy segura que sus hijos empiezan a hablar español con fluidez por ver simplemente el video.
Desde mi experiencia personal los ninos aprenden escuchando,repitiendo e interactuando con el idioma de una manera consecutiva y diaria para poder parender este.
Creo que podría ser un comienzo y una  motivación para que la familia vea  Boca Beth y aprenda algunas palabras básicas diarias en Español o Inglés.

 Yo lo  invito a visitar el sitio Boca de Beth y probar el programa para que usted  tenga  una mejor idea.

Ahora, para entrar en este sorteo:

Boca Beth amablemente  ofrece un video "Me gustan los animales / I like the animals "para niños, un Libro para colorear, una pelota de playa y pegaminas, por un valor total de $ 25.

No entro para participar en el sorteo, entre otras cosas porque vivo en España. Solo quiero decirte que os sigo desde hace tiempo, incluso os tengo en favoritos y os nombro en una entrada (http://avecesmeocurre.blogspot.com/2011/10/porta-fichas.html). Pero no se porque no puedo comentarte, me suele dar error.
Un saludo!

I've been already following your blog :) We live in Texas and it is a bilingual state. So Spanish is definitely a language my baby needs. I am not fluent in Spanish but Boca Beth can help me teaching my baby.

I would love to win more Boca Beth, I purchased two cd;s when Boca Beth did a program at the local library and my day care kids were hooked, they love singing and dancing to Boca Beth

I have been trying to teach my now almost 4 year old daughter Spanish for the last 2 years. I live in an almost exclusive English community and do not speak Spanish. I have looked at Boca Beth before but it just isn`t in my budget. With the use of brillkids and other free spanish websites my daughter is learning some Spanish but Boca Beth would be our first Spanish DVD

saucersrus said...

This would be great for my boys ages 4, 6, and 8!!

CanadianKhatty said...

Boca Beth is a regular on Brillkids and she seems to have lots of great ideas. I think we would love this program.

I have been wanting to introduce Spanish at our homeschool and I don't remember much from my high school years! My youngest is 18 months and probably would join in too.

NJ Magician said...

I have a friend that has reccommended your products and my wife and I would love for our son to learn at an early age.
