What I always found interesting about Dora, wasnt so much the Spanish lesson but rather what goes on in every episode.
She has to sneak somewhere, either across the river, through bushes, through a cave. She has a set of certain tools that can help her. There is always someone or something out to find her that she must avoid.
I always thought it was a training cartoon for illegals to get into the country, teaching them the various skills and methods.

MY QUESTION IS.. why not teach mexicans English....

does everything have to be bi-lingual... I would NEVER
NEVER NEVER go to another country and not speak
the language... and I would never expect them to
learn mine, just so I dont have to learn theirs..
it has been rubbing me the wrong way for a long time..
