Math is one of the most complicated subjects for students, even more if it’s in another language, like Spanish. Many bilingual people find it complicated to think about math in their second language. So when it’s time to do math they do it in their mother tongue. Whatever makes it easier for them, right? But the truth is, when you’re learning a new language it’s important to know math as well.

Take for example the Spanish language. It’s a very beneficial language for kids. If your children are learning it, they probably love it. But for some it can get complicated at times, especially in terms of grammar, and then you add math to the formula? They can get overwhelmed and we don’t want it.

The first thing to solve math problems in Spanish is learning the basic math words and phrases in Spanish. Knowing the vocabulary is a huge step toward the right direction. Good news: TruFluency Kids is here to help them with that!
