Iona surprised me some more this morning - she insisted on having "Diego and the Baby Sea Turtles" read to her over breakfast, and part of it involved counting flags in Spanish. I've always done such counting in Diego and Dora books in Spanish, and Iona is good at counting to 10 in English, but she's never shown any interest in the Spanish equivalents. However, this morning, after saying "uno" I was a bit slow in saying the next number, and suddenly Iona said "dos", followed by "tres" for the next one. She couldn't count any higher, but I was very impressed that at last my Spanish teaching has been having some sort of effect. It's good motivation to keep on with it.
