What a fun way to review basic vocabulary in Spanish! This video is by a speech and language therapist in Spain. Children see a scene and then hear the sound of something in the picture. They identify what makes that noise. After a moment, a picture of the object and the Spanish word come on the screen.
I love how clear these sounds are and the combination of the scene and the sound create a strong mental image. Sounds are often used to teach animal vocabulary, but the vocabulary for the kitchen, living room, bathroom, park and city are not as easily associated with sounds, so they are not usually taught that way. It is very effective and I am going to include this video as one of the activities that my students can try at home. My guess is that they will like it a lot.
When you watch this video with your child, pause it when each new scene comes on the screen and talk about what you see. Having heard the vocabulary, your child will be more likely to be able to produce the words.

This is the vocabulary that makes the sounds, but there are lots of other objects in the scenes that you can talk about too. These words are in the order they appear in the video.
