    How to Teach Children Spanish. Step 1: Finding Appropriate Materials. There are a variety of resources available for teaching children Spanish; however, finding the ones that are best suited for your child involves commitment and research. In addition, surrounding children with language materials such as books, objects and pictures for naming help to support language learning. Little Pim’s voice mirrors “motherese” and the series uses sharp and colorful images of objects and actions, allowing young viewers to connect the sounds they hear with actions and objects in real life.
