One day my two year old counted to 10 in Spanish.
My sister and I looked at each other like WTF.. because nobody in my family nor her school speaks Spanish or has tried teaching it to her..
I sorta think its from Dora The Explorer. Has this happened to anyone else before?
I'm totally not against her speaking Spanish, I actually think its quite cool. :)

My 5 year old has been watching Dora since she was 2 and can count to 10 in Spanish also. Dora is absolutely great for kids I think. It taught her a lot of things. My 4 year old isn't into tv much but she loves watching the Nick shows when she does :)

My little cousins all watch Dora and they all can count to 10 in Spanish and say quite a few Spanish words. It's pretty cool!

My daughter speaks Spanish all the time from Dora. Idk what she is saying since I don't speak Spanish, but her dad knows since they all speak Spanish. The thing is everyone is in Texas so she doesn't hear them speak Spanish and her dad is so busy learning Arabic that he never speaks Spanish to her.

DD knows quite a lot of Spanish from Dora. We also have Puerto Rican friends who speak Spanish to her.
