Learn number eight in Spanish

In Spanish, the number eight is ocho.

If you’re interested in teaching your child a second language, go ahead and teach the foreign language word for the number eight at the same time that your child is learning how to count. Demonstrating that a word (or a number) has multiple meanings from the beginning can help children to understand that a single thing can have different names in different languages and start building a multilingual mindset.
