Last week, on July 14th was Bastille Day. In honor of Curio's upcoming French book subscription box, this week's language flashcards showcase some iconic words of French culture.
Learning words that symbolize a country is a great way to open your kids' eyes to another culture and ignite their curiosity about the world. You can use these flashcards as you please while speaking Mandarin or Spanish too. Whether it's by quizzing your children on historical monuments from cities they've visited or by asking them to list the colors of some flags they might know, there are many ways to talk travel.
In fact, traveling (even if it's in your own country) is a fantastic time to speak in your second language to your children as learning a new language can come more easily when the context is fun, memorable and different.
