15 Kids' Shows on Netflix That Are Perfect For Learning Spanish

When it comes to learning Spanish, it goes without saying that looking up words in a Spanish-to-English dictionary isn't enough to make someone fluent in the language. Enrolling in a class therefore tends to be the go-to option for most adult learners, but for a child, a more immersive approach may be more suitable. Usually that means conversing with them (or in front of them) in Spanish as often as possible, however, Netflix can also be a powerful resource — especially if English is the primary language spoken at home or you really want to maximize their exposure to Spanish.

While Netflix is known for being a source of entertainment, the streaming service is also home to a wide selection of TV shows that can help children improve their Spanish comprehension skills. Whether you're looking for a series that displays subtitles in English or a Spanish-dubbed version of a show they already watch, there are plenty of options on the platform that are both entertaining and educational. If "Dora the Explorer" isn't quite cutting it anymore, check out more recommendations ahead.
