One of the most important things our kids must learn in their Spanish classes are phrases for real life. And they must practice those daily. Might sound obvious but sometimes some schools miss that.

They teach grammar rules and vocabulary lists, but they don’t always teach that vocabulary through real life phrases and context. And they don’t always practice them over and over again.

Here at TruFluency Kids we know how important that is. That’s why one of our teachers has decided to show some very important real-life phrases with “¿te gusta?” (¿do you like it?). All of this through a quick and fun TikTok lesson, so your kids won’t even feel it like a class.

Learning “¿te gusta?” will help your children speak more like a native Spanish speaker.

This question is super easy and common to ask to your friends, classmates, or any person. So children will get to know what others like or dislike. For this reason, it’s a good approach to making new friends. So there you go, your kids will win a lot from this lesson.
