Our family is getting ready to head to the beach for a vacation. To add a dash of learning to our fun, I decided to find some free Spanish beach videos and flashcards for our kids.
We will be driving so we’ll have plenty of time to use the flashcards to learn some beach vocabulary. Hopefully we’ll remember enough of it to put it to use while we’re on the beach. I can’t wait to splash in las olas and make some castillos de arena!
I found three videos that are packed with Spanish vocabulary words that are used at the beach. The first video is from Basho & Friends. Join them as they sing on the beach. Every time they introduce a new word, that object appears on the screen. Try pausing the video from time to time so you can practice saying the words out loud.
This next video is a bit more advanced, but it is definitely worth watching. Fingers are transformed into members of a family from Spain. Because they’re from Spain, you’ll notice the accent sounds different than Latin American Spanish. It’s comparable to the difference you’d find between British and American accents.
In this last video we’ll see Peppa Pig’s family at the beach. This is video is also advanced, but a lot of the vocabulary words are purposely spoken when the object is on screen. So it is definitely possible to expand your Spanish vocabulary while watching Peppa and her family enjoy their day at the beach.
Finally, I want to share some flashcards that I made. This is a set of sixteen flashcards featuring vocabulary words that were used in the videos above. You’ll see that the English word is on the left and the Spanish translation in right next to it. All you have to do is cut out the cards, and glue the Spanish word on the back of the English word that it goes with. Here’s a screen shot so you can see a sample of what they look like.
You can download the flashcards for free by clicking the words below.
I hope you enjoy learning all of these fun beach words in Spanish, as well as the rest of your summer. Be sure to check out my Spanish For Kids Pinterest board for more Spanish resources. And just for fun, tell me…
