My son and I have been studying Spanish together for about four years now. He has done many lessons on Visual Link Spanish, and we’ve taken a class at a local co-op.

All of the things we’ve learned have prepared us for an inevitable step: getting comfortable putting Spanish words together to build basic sentences.
Building Spanish sentences can be intimidating. To practice building basic Spanish sentences during these months when we’re not doing a lot of more formal school, we made our brief Spanish practice time into a game: Who will make the silliest Spanish sentence today?
