I use HOD which recommends R&S for LA. I have no problem with R&S, but I have been looking over the Queen Language Lessons and really like what I see. Can anyone compare the two? The biggest draw is the art appreciation, poetry, etc.

R&S is very rigorous and hits grammar hard. Queen's is very CM and doesn't have much grammar drill although it does touch on a lot of concepts. You could easily do a lesson of each every day at least through 4th grade because they're both short. I've used Queen's with ds and R&S with dd and we've usually doubled up both of them, so it would be easy to do one of each.

Thanks for responding! I hadn't thought of doing that. Hmmm...Off to peruse the websites again.

My kids learn very differently, we did R&S for years and I loved it with the older one. The little one was a much more CM kind of kid and we did use the Queen ones for several years. Now using Intermediate Language Lessons, very similar to the Queen ones.
