  1. I am married to a Dutch national, and we currently live in America. Our son (now 6) used to be pretty fluent in Dutch. He went to Dutch preschool and was at age-level for both English and Dutch. But then we moved back to America, and my husband didn't keep up speaking Dutch with him. We just speak English around the house, and when I reminded my husband to speak Dutch to son he just did simple things, like "nee!" and "Ik hou van jou" ("no" and "I love you"). Result : Son refuses to speak Dutch, though I think he still understands a little. I realized I need to lead by example, so I got the basic Pimsleur course from the library, and found that if I play it in the car while son is in he back seat he'll pick up some phrases. But a whole half hour of auditory learning is too tough for him to sit down and do by itself. So I'm looking into a course that we can use which will appeal to him and teach him Dutch in a structured way. Since Dutch, and Dutch for kids, is pretty non-popular, it looks like my choices are Dino Lingo, Rosetta, and Tell Me More. Dino Lingo looks like the most simple, but maybe too simple? Rosetta Stone: I've read around the internet that some people have success using this for young children. Since he already has Dutch in his head (somewhere, way deep down), would this be a good choice? Tell Me More I know almost nothing about. It looks like the homeschool package is for highschoolers, so would this be way over his head? Any other possible resources?
  2. Can anyone give me a comparison of these two? I have read that TMM goes more in depth, but it may be more difficult than RS for younger users. How young is too young to use TMM? What are the pros/cons of each? Would you start a child off with RS, then move into TMM? How do the "levels" compare? How long is it supposed to take to complete one level in each program? Oh, and most importantly, what sort of hardware comes in the box? ;) I thought I saw that RS has a headset/mic included. Am I correct? Does TMM have one? I'd just like to know what to buy ahead of time, since I don't own a microphone already. I'm looking at getting one of these for my dd to start learning Spanish when she starts 5th grade. I'd also like to be able to learn enough Spanish myself to be comfortable carrying on a conversation with native speakers. I took 2 years of high school Spanish, but the best I can do in conversation is to pick out a word or two in every sentence and say very simple phrases with a bad accent.
  3. I see the current group buy through the hs co-op for Tell Me More foreign language curriculum. Anybody use this? Pros? Con? Compared to RS or other programs you like? I wasn't going to purchase a foreign language curriculum this year, but if the discount reaches 50% I think that would be a no brainer as we'll start Spanish the following year anyway!
  4. 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
  5. Cross post from curiculum board... http://www.tellmemorestore.com/magnum.asp?pg=homeschool Anyone have experience with this program? It looks similar to RS but it sounds like it has more grammar. I'd love to hear a review if you have used this. Thanks.
  6. I wanted to post an update on our auralog Spanish. I finished about 80% of the beginner level Latin American Spanish. After 2 weeks my high schoolers have finished about 30% of the beginner level Latin American Spanish. Yep, they have been putting in quality hours with Mr. Computer. They had a semester of ABeka Spanish 1 under their belts before they began and I am glad for that, because, although the grammar is presented in the program, the student will need to spend time learning it (sentence structure, conjugations, pronouns, etc.) outside the program. So, if your kids have no background in Spanish grammar, be sure they stop at the grammar sections and learn the info. The program will let you open the explanation, glance at it, and keep going. Since my boys already had a background in grammar and have worked quite a bit with vocabulary through ABeka, I had them do 4 sections the first week and 3 this week. From now until they finish they will do 2 sections each week. There are 15 sections in the Beginner Level Latin American Spanish. I am guessing that the Latin American Spanish is in development, because there are no other levels through the library and on their website I don’t see where it can be purchased. So, when my big guys complete the Latin American Spanish, I plan to have them take the placement test for auralog standard Spanish. Oh, and we do plan to continue with ABeka Spanish alongside Auralog. Of course, this is easy for me to say. Auralog is free through my library. Would I be willing to pay $225 through RR for the complete Spanish program? Yes, I think so. I bought the RS Farsi. A complete RS V3 program is $450 through RR. The strength of both programs is listening to native speakers and the ability to have that native speaker say the words again and again. So, for 1/2 the cost I do think that Auralog is worth the money. However, RS can be used with younger children, because it is more intuitive and uses more pictures. I do not have to explain to my 6yo what RS Farsi wants him to do and my 15yo has had to ask me what he was supposed to do on an Auralog screen. And, Auralog by far requires more reading and typing. Also, and this is probably a duh comment, but my oldest ds who has had 2 years of Latin is moving through both ABeka and Auralog with much more confidence and speed than my middle ds. Although middle ds took a light intro to Spanish last year, it takes him nearly double the time of my oldest to complete the same assignment. HTH- Mandy
  7. I have Rosetta Stone spanish and my boys have never liked it, although I know many people who do like it. My 12 yo ds is wanting to study Chinese and has been quite serious about this. I found an offer for Tell Me More Foreign Languages on the Homeschool Buyers Co-op site. Can anyone tell me what they think of this?
  8. I just saw an ad for this in a magazine. Anyone know anything about it?
  9. Hi, Has anyone used this program? How would it compare to Rosetta Stone? pros/cons? thanks! ~Gail
  10. Our CC uses Auralog Tell Me Now software as the foundation of their online language courses. It seems to be an immersion program with voice recongition sort of like Rosetta Stone, but unlike Rosetta Stone includes grammar, culture study, and all 4 levels in one package. At $249 it's sort of pricey, but this could conceivably be used as your only modern language curriculum. Here's a link to the program: http://www.tellmemore.com/homeschool__1/homeschool Disclaimer: I haven't actually used the software myself, but I've been convinced to give it a try. Homeschool buyers co-op has it available until 5/26 for $199 (so far), and of course shipping is free: https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.or...fer&Itemid=328 I just wanted to pass the word on in case there are others like me who were intrigued but were having a hard time with the cost. HTH someone. Barb
  11. Ok, I must be a complete idiot, because their website says: ::Student tracking. Evaluate the percentage of activities completed, done correctly... :: Exclusive activity guide, explaining all 37 activities of TELL ME MORE :: Possibility to create several accounts. Each family member can follow her/his own Spanish learning and progress. :: Link where Homeschool parents can have access to the content of TELL ME MORE, with and without solutions, enabling them to follow the progress of their homeschoolers. But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to access any of this. It says on the box, it is the homeschool version. Is there anyone smarter than I am who has been able to figure this out? DD has been using it a couple of months, but I have no idea how she is really doing, because it does not give her any goal...nor can I find where it keeps track of how she does. I purchased this because the reviews at the Old Schoolhouse really liked it...I am starting to wish I would have just went with RS :(
  12. I asked about Rosetta Stone, but I'm not getting much pos. feedback on it. Who has used Auralog and what did you think? My son is wanting to learn Arabic.
