I am looking for suggestions in learning basic Vietnamese, although not necessarily in a strict for-credit manner. We have tried to get started using DuoLingo, but Vietnamese is not working as well in that format as some other languages we have tried. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!
I've been using WTM for 16 years now and used to rely heavily on the WTM forum each year for research and planning purposes. But the last few years I've been pretty set in my ways--until now. DD wants to learn French and while it's obvious there are zillions of options out there, I'm a little overwhelmed at the thought of sorting through them all. What is your experience with curricula for high school French that is DVD, software or online (not just workbooks) and won't break the bank. DD has passing acquaintance with French as well as a year of high school Latin. Plan to study for 3 years.
I'm thinking of foreign languages to do next year, and was considering ASL, but I don't know any kind of curriculum to use with an 11-12 year old. Signing Time looks like it's geared for much younger children, and most of the other things I've found are just books, which seems odd, given the dynamic visual nature of ASL. So I was wondering what would you recommend for a middle schooler just starting ASL (aside from some baby signs as a toddler)? I'd prefer something with a video component, but am not opposed to using books if they are well done. I'm still in research mode, but I'd like to get some ideas, to even know if something like this is feasible, or if I should just get some vocabulary things and let her take a "real" class at the community college when she gets to high school.
