Getting Started With Spanish?


Recommended Posts

We just started using this book to supplement Rosetta Stone. We've done the first 15 lessons and so far we love it. Lessons are daily and short but provide translation, understandable grammar instruction and writing practice.. 3 things missing from RS's online immersion style program. I wish there was a second book already but meh.. maybe we'll do Getting Started with Latin=D


Here is a pretty detailed preview of the book and is very representative of the lessons. http://www.gettingstartedwithspanish.com/preview01.php

I can't speak for GSwS (I have it but probably won't start it until the summer/fall term), but we are about 2/3s of the way done with Getting Started with Latin and love it. The format of the two are the same. I love just one word or concept per lesson. The sentences for translating not only use the new vocabulary/grammar, but also include sentences reviewing old vocab/concepts. It's a great, gentle approach to beginning learning a language. I actually am looking forward to doing GSwS with the kids in hopes of remembering the Spanish I used to know. :)
