Episode Summary

Gina is reading Marco a book about the Spanish names for animals, and explaining to Rosita that since Marco was born in Guatemala, where people speak Spanish, she would like them to learn Spanish. Rosita explains that there is so much more to learn and dashes off to get her guitar!

After a little guitarra, Rosita zips off to get more instruments: claves, maracas, guiro, and a bongo, to sing a song about musica. But there's more: Rosita tells Gina that baile is the Spanish word for dance, and proceeds to dances the tango, merengue, and conga.

Finally, Rosita tells Gina and Marco all about different comidas (food), and chefs deliver a delicious feast. With musica, baile, and comida there's only one thing left to do—have a fiesta with amigos!
