From passive facilitator to active agent = result

Even though I have only just started speaking the odd bit of Spanish at home with my children (and on some days none at all) amazingly there is already a ripple effect happening. The kids are more enthusiastic about Spanish, they ask me to do simple vocabulary games with them and they have even used the odd word or phrase with each other.

The actual amount of Spanish spoken is so little that I think part of the effect must come purely from the intention or change of heart that I have had as regards my role in this experiment. I have gone from being a passive facilitator (promoting contact with other Spanish-speaking people or situations) to being an active agent (speaking Spanish to them myself).

If I can just keep it up and increase the amount we speak at home then I think it could have far greater results than I had hoped for.
