  1. A. is in third grade, and we are doing Getting Started With Spanish over the next year or two and plan to follow with Galore Park's So You Really Want to Learn Spanish. I bought CAP's Spanish for Children Primer A for us to use this fall, but I've begun to realize that it is a chunk of work for us and am not sure that it is the best way to be using that time. Probably 20-30 min/day on school days. If we drop it and continue on with just GSWS and then pick up SYRWTLS later I think we will be fine but it occurs to me that perhaps the Spanish for Children is one of those things whose value becomes clear after a year or two of use ... any thoughts? for context, I'm focusing this year on A's math (he's accelerated and doing PreA); his writing (we're starting Classical Writing) and reading (bringing comprehension up) and lots of outdoor time (A. is on an idiosyncratic developmental timetable -- he spent his PreK-2nd grade years doing lots of formal work because it helped keep him sane and balanced, and now that he's becoming a bit more able to relax I am trying to give him a lot of unstructured play time to make up for the lack of it in the early years). On the one hand I don't want to overburden him; on the other hand, the Spanish for Children is do-able but challenging for him so it may be an ideal component for our school. thoughts? (and thanks!)
  2. Has anyone already put together their own tests for each "unit" for Spanish for Children A? I just did my own for Unit 1 - mostly sentences to translate. Just wondered if anyone had already "done the work" and if so, what do yours look like (fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, sentence translations, etc.)? What do you think about the amount of practice & quality of the quizzes? I'm disappointed with the lack of practice & review so far. I've incorporated more practice (mostly with flashcards) for my daughter on my own. Is there more translation work & practice in SfC B?
  3. We will be finishing up level 2 of La Clase Divertida in a few months. While we have enjoyed the DVD lessons, the workbook STINKS. (in my humble opinion.) :lol: I need something with better review and assignments through the week. But I need it to already be done for me or I won't get to it. (while I love researching and hunting online for worksheets and such, I just don't have time left to do that.) I would love some type of DVD lesson, we are doing this with 2 other families and meet weekly. Any suggestions???
  4. I just ordered SfC mostly to pad a recent order in order to get free shipping. I know my kids are young for it, so I figured I'd modify it or just use it when they're older. But after looking through it, I don't get the 'for children' part of the curriculum. It doesn't look very different from any Spanish 1 textbook that a high schooler would use, except that it is less organized, there is less practice, and their is less vocab. I hate paying for return shipping, but at this point I'm thinking I'll return it. I guess I was thinking (hoping) that the book would break the material down or make the it more intelligible to a child. But it just seems to proceed like any language textbook--memorize the -ar endings, -er endings, irregulars, etc. (Also, when introducing preterit it said "preterit is just a fancy word for past tense" which made me bristle a little. Either use the word without apologies, or if you think its too advanced don't use it. Instead SfC chose to use it incorrectly--because preterit is not synonymous with past tense. It is one of the past tenses in Spanish.) And if my kids were old enough for this type of instruction, then there are probably much better books available. I really am not impressed. The pronunciation is inacurate, and some of the exercises are confusing and scatterbrained. (Take for instance this Fill in the Blank: "A part of __________ is a type of ________." Huh?) What am I missing about this curriculum? As i said, I hate returning things... If your child went through the book, did you see their Spanish improve much? And are the GfC and LfC books similar? Because if so I'm thinking I'd be better off just modifying adult/high school texts Elena
  5. Is there anyone out there that is familiar with either or both programs? We've done La Clase levels 1 and 2 and I own level 3. We've learned a lot, but I've been frustrated with the instruction at times, particularly the lack of info in the teacher's guides. We're also using GSWS, which I love. If there was something like GSWS that would take us all the way through, that's definitely the direction I would go in, but I haven't found anything like that. Anyway, my plan was to move on to Spanish for Children after completing La Clase 3, but now I'm wondering if we should just move into it right after La Clase 2? I don't own Spanish for Children yet, so it's hard to judge whether there would be much value in completing La Clase before starting SforC. PLEASE give me your thoughts if you are familiar with either or both of these programs. Lisa
  6. I just saw Spanish for Children in the store today and I liked the look of it. My kids are 10 and 8 and I have been trying unsuccessfully to find a Spanish curriculum that doesn't cost a fortune and doesn't consist mainly of cooking and crafts. Anyway, I was wondering how anyone liked (or disliked) Spanish for Children, and any ideas or tips on how to implement it with kids this age. Or are they too young for it? I should add that I always liked Spanish myself and remember a good portion of the two years of it I had in high school. Thanks!
  7. I want to begin Spanish as soon as possible for dd4, but programs that involve reading and writing are inappropriate now. Anyone know of anything we could listen to in the car (captive audience :) ) that would give us practice in some basic stuff? I saw a reference in looking through threads to La Clase Divertica and Pimsleur, any opinions?
  8. 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?
  9. If you have, do you enjoy it? Or if you tried it and hated it, let me know why. Thanks so much!
  10. I am looking at the different options available for Spanish. The two programs I am looking at are Spanish for Children and So You Really Want to Learn Spanish Can anyone tell me pros and cons of either of these programs? Is there a difference between the Spanish taught between the two programs? Is there a difference between Spanish spoken here in the USA, versus what is spoken in Spain; kinda like British English and American English. If so, would be better to go with Spanish for Children instead of So You Really Want to Learn Spanish?
  11. I'm looking for opinions of the Spanish for Children curriculum. If you have used it, please let me know what you think about it.
  12. I'm thinking about next year so I can budget for costs, and am just beginning to explore foreign language options. Dd will be finished with LFC B, and would like to switch over to Spanish. I'd love to try Rosetta Stone, but it's just too expensive. What say you, Hive? Any suggestions for a bright 6th grader with some Latin studies under her belt? And along with curriculum choices, what about the version of Spanish we choose for her as a beginner? We live on the west coast where there are many Latinos, but I would also like her to be able to speak Spanish abroad when she travels in the future or use Spanish as a second language as a career enhancement. I do not speak a foreign language, so the curriculum of choice would be user friendly to parents that don't speak the language (like LFC, for instance). We would prefer a package that includes DVD's and/or CD's. Bundles are nice :~) Blessings, Lucinda
  13. We have been using Memoria Press Latina Christiana and dd loves it. I would like to add Spanish this summer. Is there a Spanish program out there that has teaching dvds like Memoria Press?
  14. I just received The Fun Spanish, level 1 in the mail (from someone on this board) and it looks great! I hadn't heard of it before. Has anyone used it and if so, how did it go? There doesn't appear to be a Level 2, that's not encouraging... or maybe it is coming in the future? We'll be using it along with Rosetta Stone, and I'm starting the Destinos soap operas/textbook/workbook myself. Suggestions for Spanish readers would be welcome, especially board books and super simple, fun stuff like that since we are just beginners and pictures help a lot. They loved "¡Corre, perro, corre!" and I just ordered Buenos Noches Luna from the library. I'm so excited about the 3 of us learning Spanish right now! We just got back from a Spanish Family Weekend at Concordia Language Village and we're planning to do a full week there next summer, then a longer immersion experience in Mexico or Costa Rico the year after. I would especially love to hear from those who have successfully learned/taught Spanish at home.
  15. This looks good, but I'm just wondering what others thoughts are. Also, is this just the beginning? Will there be more curriculum coming out? Thanks!
  16. I love their Latin materials...but I received the Spanish Primer A and answer Key in the mail and was just, honestly, stumped! I was planning to sale it, but I called today and ordered the DVD instead (I had called to see if I could return it and the customer service person was SO NICE. She offered to discount the DVD for me as if I was buying the package they offer online. It saved me $14. :) Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone here has used the Spanish and what you thought of it. I did not take Spanish in school (I took French) and I am just hoping I can teach it! If you used the DVD, is most of the teaching done on there? If so, that helps me out a ton! LOL Opinions please!
