Any evaluations of SOS secondary Spanish yet?

We've been using it since September, and my feelings are mixed. It seems to have a more whole to parts than parts to whole approach toward learning, which my ds finds frustrating. Also, there have been times when the answers to an exercise directly contradict info. given in the lesson. And I don't know Spanish well enough to know what's going on.

 

I'm wondering whether Spanish 1 would be a better fit. Has anyone used both? Does Spanish 1 explain things better? Or is he off base--is there explanation of--for example--when to use and not use pronouns that we're both missing?

and sent it back! There was more typing than listening to Spanish.

I had a hard time with SOS Spanish 1; never mind trying to get my 12yob to do it AND I had the answers!

 

Michelle,

 

I see you're using SfC instead. How's that going? I'm pretty sure I'm going to purchase it for my 12yo to begin next semester. Level A will be a lot of review for her, but she said she needs it. :)

It's working well for us because I know VERY little Spanish! We're on week 6. It's grammar based which is what I wanted and only takes about 20 min. each day to review the DVD, do flash cards (make our own) and one page in the workbook. There could be more workbook pages to do for an older dc but I like that it's simple and doesn't require a lot of written work or time. Slow and steady is my motto with foreign language (at least in middle school)! :D

Thanks! My dd and I both really like the grammar approach of the program.

I like Secondary Spanish very much myself. I'm not all that far into it though.

 

Do you find that it explains the grammar before asking a student to write a sentence? Have you run into errors in the answers? We're not far either--about halfway through the second unit. I'm trying to determine whether this is a problem with the program or with my son. :glare:
