Ingles sin Barreras

If you have ever watched Univision or Telemundo for more than 5 minutes you know about “Ingles sin Barreras” which is a “Learn English” tape series that is constantly advertised.  It is the Sham-Wow of Spanish TV.  The infomercials usually have a variety of testimonies of people talking about why they needed to learn English and how Ingles sin Barreras worked for them.  Exclamation Point!

I might have mentioned that it took Arnold and I awhile to figure out the bottle we gave Elian on the first day had a cap on the inside.  Or maybe I didn’t because it’s embaressing.  Oh well, too late now!

He tried to drink it for half an hour before we figured it out.  What a great introduction to us as new parents! The “people who give me food that doesn’t work”.  Anyways we figured it out eventually but the other day we made the same mistake because Arnold didn’t realize I had packed the bottle with the inside cap.  Yes, our child tried to drink a trick bottle... again.


We were having lunch with Andres and Maritza at a carnival when we discovered this.  Andres shook his head and said “Elian is thinking ‘I need to learn English!  Maybe you should get him Ingles sin Barreras."
