Rumbo's travelogue

Versión en español aquí
Puppets are a great resource to encourage your children to speak a second language. But the impact that it makes will depend on you! By creating a whole story behind it, your kids will be much more connected and really open to listen!!

As the good traveler that he is, Rumbo never forgets his diary where he writes about his trips, the places he discovers and the new interesting people that he meets around the world. And in each of his travels, Rumbo shares that story with his kids, and he makes them feel excited about the places that he explored here and there, or even that weird and exotic animal that he found in a magic lane. The world is full of mysteries and adventures to live. And together, they will fill the pages of his diary.

Rumbo’s travelogue belongs to the project Rumbo around the world. To read the whole diary click here. Or read:


In this first part Rumbo presents himself and invite them to live an adventure together. From the point of view of learning a second language, it will be used to do an initial assesment of their Spanish level at the same time as it will awake their curiosity to learn.

My idea is to continue this project in other schools, with more kids, schools, libraries… and take Rumbo wherever I am going!! To make this project grow in diversity!

I hope to fill all the pages of this diary with kids from all over around the world!!!
