    Hi! if I want my son to have spanish as a primary language, Can I teach him with your program and do the signs but pronouncing the words in spanish?

    ADMIN – Hi Karina,

    Yes, you can use the signs with any language. If he is going to be bilingual, you can also use the signs as a bridge between the two languages – using the same sign whether you say the sign in English or Spanish.
