The Three Kings’ Day is the most exciting day of the year for kids living in Hispanic countries. The story of Santa Claus is not as embraced as the biblical story of the Three Kings who first handedly gave Jesus gifts, and so the tradition of gift giving is more appropriate on Three Kings’ Day rather than Christmas day. It is a day near and dear to the hearts of Hispanic people from all over the world.

How many times have you heard someone speak another language, other than your mother tongue and been thoroughly impressed thinking “How do they do that?”

Many people report that speaking, or orally practicing a foreign language they are learning, can be terrifying. From our fear of failure, being judged and sounding silly, on top of added difficulty of putting to use new vocabulary and grammar structures, you may feel your brain shutting down. This can all boil down to a case of anxiety enough to make anyone want to give up or find many reasons to not speak the foreign language they are learning.

Making mistakes is inevitable. Regardless of how hard we try, mistakes happen at some point in time, especially when learning something new, like learning a second language. Many people often experience a fear of failure because making blunders can make us feel silly and exposes our vulnerable side. However, what matters is what we make of these blunders and how we utilize them to our advantage. The good news is that we can learn from our mistakes and sometimes it’s these mistakes that end up making us much better at what we are trying to learn.
