Have you heard of "Twin speak"? The language some twins make up between the two of them. No one else knows what they are saying, except for the twins.
My two sons began speaking to each other in spanish. It is driving me crazy, especially when they really don't want me knowing what they are saying to each other.
It all started when I we got Matt, our youngest son, vtech's Language Laptop. Matt had a couple of kids in class who spoke spanish, fluently. Matt wanted to learn the language. Well, why not?
It was a birthday present for Matt, getting him the "language laptop", by Vtech. It is a notebook computer, with a plug in mouse. QWERTY keyboard is designed to promote learning a foreign language. This computer is intuitive and Matt has more than taken control of spanish. I think he speaks it like he came from Spain, only I can't tell, because I don't know what he talks about with his brother anymore!
His older brother, Brian got into the act a couple of months ago. Now my wife is being tutored by Matt to pick it up on this Vtech.
I know, I should be proud of them for learning a language so quick. I still don't believe this is going on.
Now, Matt is talking about all of us going to Spain over the holidays. Yeah, you bet. I think it's pretty neat a computer is teaching my kids a different language, but I still feel this is some kind of conspiracy to get me to learn it myself.
