No Inglés

JT takes Spanish at school and he seems to enjoy it. Lately, when we practice math facts, he answers in Spanish. But his most innovative use of the language is when I ask him to do something and he'd rather not comply. When that happens, he gives me a confused look and then says, "no inglés."

So when he's instructed to brush his teeth, or wash his face, or wash his hands, or, or, or......he just says, " no inglés."

I've got trouble on my hands.

Some helpful phrases for just such an occasion:

lavate la cara-wash your face

lavate las manos-wash your hands

cepillate los dientes-brush your teeth

See what he does with those, and there are lots more where those came from.
