acquire a language... don't just learn it.

When it comes to teaching a second language, it’s far more about linguistics and less about grammar. Chiquitots provides natural communication so a child can acquire the Spanish language.

A child should understand the concept of a phrase intially, rather than the direct translation, which they will learn later on their educational journey.
