  1. I would like to talk to someone that has used Destinos with their kids. Anyone around to help me? :auto:
  2. I have learned so much from this forum, but I want to hear more about language learning (spanish). Any great forums you can suggest? Articles? I am bewildered on which program I should use with a K with exposure to spanish with dh and grandparents. This is not enough to moving him toward speaking spanish comfortably. I think I am rambling.....:D
  3. Play and Learn Spanish apparently has come out with a second edition! I'm very excited by the table of contents because it looks like it cleared up some of the frustrating things I found from the first edition. I did like the first edition too, though. I remember seeing some posts on here about Play and Learn Spanish by Ana Lomba in the past saying "I can't figure out how to use it to teach Spanish!" So I thought I'd just share my thoughts why I think it's a great system. I just wrote up my thoughts on it on my blog here. In short, it does require the parent to learn vocab words along with the child and then to USE them in daily conversation. The point is learning language by immersion in the language. I have studied Spanish in the past so, granted, this is much easier for me to do. I did not know "kid" words, though, so this really helped me. But in general, I think repetition of phrases kids regularly use makes it a very valuable program. I know it's not for everyone (especially those that are not as familiar with Spanish or interested in learning it along with your child) but for those willing to make it a parent-child playtime, I think it is fantastic!
  4. Hi, just wondering if anybody had any feedback on the Sube spanish curriculum. I will be teaching spanish for our coop and was considering using this curriculum. Any info would be greatly appreciated:001_smile:.
  5. My son was suppose to attend a local co-op for Spanish II but that fell through. So now I need to figure something out for the fall. He took Spanish I at the local HS last year. What have you or are you going to use for Spanish this year or in years past? Links would be appreciated. :001_smile:
  6. Busy here planning for our Third Year starting in September. I was all set with going with Spanish for Children and maybe later in the year add Rosetta Stone, when I remembered Galore Park's So You Really Want To Learn Spanish. What is the age range recommendation? Would you do it with an 8-year-old? My soon-to-be 8-year-old is familiar with Spanish and has better pronunciation than most because I speak another language to him that's phonetic and I've exposed him to Spanish since he was little. However, he only knows how to say the very basics and doesn't know how to converse yet. I want to take him to the next level and have him speak in Spanish (he'll have me to practice with) and start understanding the grammar and start writing. Galore Park looks really solid and rigorous, and the way I was taught English. The only 3 things that are making me pause are: - It looks a little dull for an 8-year-old. What are the recommended ages? - It's Spanish from Spain, whereas I would vastly prefer Spanish from Latin America -The images (I know, I know, very superficial. But I like pretty :)) Please share your thoughts.
  7. I'm considering Spanish curricula--does anyone have experience with La Clase Divertida to share? I'm particularly wondering if the crafts/cooking activities/ etc. were helpful or stressful--do they add a lot to the language learning experience? I'm looking for something my husband could do with the kids, so fun/structured/but not too complicated would be good. Thanks in advance for any input!
  8. Ok, I am totally confused about which spanish curriculum to use for my 5 year old (and my 2 year old through osmosis:)). I originally thought I would use learnables, but he may be too young for it. Then, I considered Getting Started with Spanish, but the author and a fellow forum board member said he may be too young. The author mentioned that I can teach him through rote memorization with GSWS. My dh is spanish speaking (bilingual). EVERYONE tells me to have him just speak to them in spanish. He does but the kids need something more (since he does not speak exclusively to them in spanish...he wants for his kids to understand him). Any suggestions? I do not want to get a curriculum that goes in one ear and out the other. :) We want a good program that they can retain since they will be speaking spanish with dh and in-laws. Of course dh will reinforce and follow up with review. FYI, cost is an issue! Here are the options I am looking at: 1. Learnables Spanish 2. Getting Started with Spanish 3. Risas y Sonrisas 4. The Easy Spanish Junior 5. La Clase Diversitad 6. Puertas Abierta Please tell me your EXPERIENCE with the program. :tongue_smilie:FYI, I loved Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. If I could find something like that in spanish, it would be GREAT!
  9. What do you plan to use after GSWS? I am considering this program, but the only drawback I see is that there is no second book in this series for spanish. Any suggestions?
  10. I was planning on having my son use Powerspeak Spanish next year - he'll be in 5th grade, so we'll use the Intermediate Level or whatever they call the one for Middle School. We downloaded a "2-week" trial (14 lessons, I think it was) and it seemed pretty good and was also fun. I like that he gets to listen to the language as well and it's something different - visual/computer "game". We're going to do Latin for Children, so I don't want to overwhelm him with another language where he has to do "work" and I think using it online won't seem as much like "work" to him and a bit more fun. Anyway, I was all set on this and then I saw another poster who listed it when someone asked for curriculum people hated. She said it was horrible! So I'm hoping I'll get some other positive reviews and maybe it just wasn't right for her child. Reviews I've read online seem pretty good. I know a lot of people have use PowerGlide, which was the previous version and was only CDs you'd listen to, right? If that's the case, I'm not so interested in reviews of that. A big reason I'm interested in PowerSpeak is that it seems like a "computer game". Thanks for any input!
  11. Hi, I am new to homeschooling. I started teaching my 5 year old with TYCR100EZ lessons. I am getting ready to start Singapore Math. I am considering the Scrambled States of America and Spelling Power. Can you tell me your FAVORITE curriculum choices and why? I would love to have some recommendations. I am also thinking about using the classical conversations cd as a supplement (not actually attend cc). Advice?:) BTW, I would LOVE to find a great curriculum to teach my child Spanish. I know very little spanish myself, but my DH is Puerto Rican.
  12. Is anyone using this program, Spanishdict, for high school Spanish? Is it enough to count for high school credit, and if so, how many? What are your thoughts on it? Thanks so much!
  13. I am trying to work with a tutor on creating a Spanish 1 class using Rosetta Stone version 2 as a basis for my 9th grade dd. What must be included for a year's worth of credit for Spanish 1? Spanish 2? Thank you so much!
  14. We have been using "Bonjour les Amis!" for French and "Hola Amigos!" for Spanish with our three year old. Both have been excellent, and he's learned a lot from them. (I'm surprised that they fit so much vocabulary onto their DVDs.) We are going to continue with Spanish, picking French back up in later grades, and I'm trying to figure out where to go from here. My son has a pretty decent working vocabulary now (common nouns, numbers, colors, weather, etc.), and he figured out how to read Spanish because those programs show the text at the bottom of the screen. Would Muzzy be a good option for a kid like this? Even though he can read and knows a lot of Spanish, he's still three, so I'm not sure that he would enjoy or understand something aimed at much older children. For now I've been checking out Spanish versions of books he likes from the library, but I'd like to offer him something in addition to this. What have you tried and what have been your outcomes? Another issue is that I do not speak Spanish, and my son is getting way ahead of me, so it's hard for me to speak Spanish with him. As it is, he ends up teaching me. Can anyone endorse a program for adults that brought them up to basic fluency?
  15. I am sure you are all sick of Spanish questions. i have read all the threads but am still not finding what I want. I want a simple Spanish DVD program that teaches how to speak Spanish. And thats all :D DVDs and maybe some flashcards. No workbooks, grammar, writing, crafts etc. I do not want to do: Salsa, Learn Spanish for Kids, or Rosetta Stone. I have a netbook and limited megabytes so i cant do Salsa, Learn Spanish for Kids is too new, Rosetta Stone is too expensive. Can anyone help me out?:) Maybe is there a program that has crafts/projects etc but has a good DVD? then I can just skip all the extras?
  16. My daughters love Muzzy Spanish, but are not able to to written coursework. If DD1 continues at this pace she'll be "done" with the initial vocab & discussion components soon. Does anyone have any (curricula, television, RL) ideas for what to do next with her? I know that there's a Muzzy 2, but I'd really like to know if there are other options out there :) Thanks!!! PS - I don't currently speak Spanish, I'm learning just slightly ahead of them so I know their vocab and a little more, but I can't really speak it to them :(
  17. My children had been doing Rosetta Stone Spanish up until 2 mos. ago when my old computer "died." I was wondering if I should order the new RS (since my new computer has Windows Vista and is not compatible w/ the old RS) or go w/ something new? The novelty of RS wore off years ago. My dc checked out Visual Spanish's demo online and liked it. Any of you use it? Any other recommendations for a 7th gr. and his siblings? TIA!
  18. Looking for recommendations for a highschool or college level Spanish curriculum. We are getting Rosetta Stone for my kids and I will do it too but personally I learn well through textbooks.... I want to find a textbook that I can do myself or an online self-paced class that uses a textbook. I'm interested in both grammar and vocabulary, basically a highschool or college level Spanish I class. But something I can do on my own. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
  19. My B/SIL got us Muzzy I last year for Christmas and we're just getting ready to start Spanish, so I'm now reviewing it. So far, I can't say I'm very excited about it. It seems to introduce many things too quickly; the dialogue is hard to hear/understand (I had 4 years of Spanish in high school many moons ago, but remember enough ... I'm having to listen hard and carefully to even hear words when I know what they're going to say); and the story line, well, we're pretty conservative, and the story line is a bit disconcerting for small children (kissing, hiding a bf/gf relationship from parents, etc.) I hate that they spent so much money on this! I had (and am) planned on using El Espanol Facil for our main Spanish curriculum. Is there any way to supplement with Muzzy? Can parts of the story be cut out and have it still make sense? Anyone with experience on using this? I know they got it for their kids too, I'll probably ask her about how she uses it.
  20. I am wondering if anyone has used Tell Me More Spanish. If so, what did you think? How many levels did you use- 5 or 10? Would you recommend the program? Can you compare it to Rosetta Stone or other programs you have used? My family has used Rosetta Stone level 1 and 2, but would like to try a different program for reasons of cost and a desire to have a stronger focus on grammar. I would also like a program that includes more conversational spanish. At least level 1 and 2 in Rosetta Stone have little if any. We have lived in South America so my kids have a basic foundation in Spanish. I just hate that their language skills are slipping away. I appreciate this, Heather
  21. I have access to this language program, it has a total of 100 lessons per language, from what I can see, one lesson can easily take a week (or more). Has anyone done this, and how have you paced it? We are starting Spanish 1. Thank you!
  22. I'm thinking of ordering Spanish 1 of SYRWTLS from Book Depository (free shipping???? How? AND they're cheaper than amazon.ca and Galore Park - how so???). From what I've read and researched, it contains more grammar training than other programs for middle grade kids. Would you say it's sort of like LC 1 and LC 2 (which will be completed by June here and then we're moving on to Henle 1) in the grammar training and grammar/vocab. memory work? If not, can it be adapted this way? How many lessons are in each level? How long does it take to go through Spanish 1? Spanish 2? Spanish 3? How long does it take to do a lesson each day? Is it reasonable to assume a child could do all three levels from grades 6-8? Why or why not? Or is it more towards high school level Spanish? What would you transition to in high school after doing level 3? What types of helps are in the TM? Thank you!
  23. Has anyone used this? What is your opinion of the program? We've used a tutor along with Glencoe's Spanish program for the last 2 years. Our tutor will not be an option for next year and I am unable to help my child this far along in the language. I was thinking of using the dvd program.
  24. Any curriculum recommendations for elementary Spanish? I tried to do a search and so many threads came up it was hard to wade through them. My kids are 2nd/3rd grade, 1st grade, and a tag along preschooler (almost 5).
  25. Hi Jean, I read this post of yours and wrote some notes down. I could see the study pattern you described, and it was very helpful. "When a child learns a language as a 2nd language, there comes a point where he is able to begin studying it as if it were his 1st language. 1st we learn to speak it, write it, and comprehend it aurally. We learn the grammar. Once the child has gotten the basics down, it is time to study literature and write papers using the language. He also needs to use it in day-to-day living. Choose a program. Progress through the elementary years learning grammar and conversational language. Then move into translation of simple books or books of the Bible. Have a meal in which everyone is required to use the language. Dish TV has several Spanish educational programs--make those a part of your day. Add cultural studies, including food and society. Learn about the country's geography and history where that language is spoken. By the time the child is in High School, his language program will include reading literature and writing papers about them--just like we do in English classes." I am just wondering, what would you recommend in the elementary/middle years for grammar and conversational Spanish? I bought the first level of The Learnables, and I see that Learnables has a grammar component in the next level. What's your opinion of the grammar component? Also, what is your opinion of the higher levels of the Learnables (I think Spanish goes to level 5?)? Would those levels be considered high school level? Or is there something else out there that would help us study Spanish more completely in high school? My son is 10 and will be starting this in a few months. Also, he will be doing Latina Christiana 2, so I think the Latin he has done so far will be helpful in Spanish. One more thing - I found a book at a thrift store called "Spanish Verbs and Essentials of Grammar - a Practical Guide to the Mastery of Spanish" by Ina W. Ramboz. Do you know anything about this book - as in, could it be helpful to me, or can you give me some tips on how I could use it in our studies? Thanks so much!
