*Expand- Watch a TV program in Spanish or a DVD that you are very familiar with(Most DVD's have Spanish options). Listen to Spanish music on the radio/CD when you are in the car. Take out a Spanish/English bilingual book from the library. Have a Spanish dinner night and make tacos, quesadillas or any recipe you can find.
