Jazmin and Shawn here. When we’re not playing with our little boy or going on a taco run, we are busy running and planning this fiesta! We are so happy that you are here to get to know us a little better, and most of all celebrate our mutual love of bilingual literacy. We share a great passion for Spanish, education, entrepreneurship and most of all our heritage. As for Jazmin, her love came from the endless hours spent dancing cumbia with her mama in the kitchen, and visiting her home country of Costa Rica. While Shawn at the ripe age of 19 went to live for 2 years in Mexico City, where he immersed himself in Spanish and the Hispanic Latino culture. Together we have combined our passions and found the fun in learning Spanish and celebrating our culture as a family with our little one.
As parents we know language is an important step in child development, so we thought, why not make it a fun family activity? The answer was right in front of our eyes when we were out looking for Spanish children books for our little boy. We couldn’t think of a better way! Reading books with your children at a young age helps develop the 3 main elements of language learning: Vocabulary, Grammar and Pronunciation. That is why we have created My Spanish Sorpresa. To spread the love and share our passion with you, and most of all to give you the tools you need to celebrate heritage and culture as a family while learning Spanish.
