Rosetta Stone Spanish...

Recommended Posts

I know this has been covered before but after searching 3+ pages of the results of a search I hope someone will not mind answering this YET AGAIN :)


My DS has completed Lev I RS Spanish and has started Lev II. He has completed all the worksheets and tests. He has an average of both

computer grading and written work of 97%. He is also doing Madrigal's magic Key to Spanish - very slowly 1 lesson per wk - we just started a few weeks ago (or shall I say restarted it - it got laid to the side for a while).


So where does this equal Spanish I??


My plans were to have him complete Level 1-3 plus worksheets and Madrigal's magic Key to Spanish + a few advanced grammar bks - I have one called The Ultimate Spanish Review and Practice by Ronni L Gordon.


Would this be enough for Spanish I/II or would I need to add something like the self teaching guides to Spanish Grammar or the practice makes perfect series?

How is Rosetta Stone Spanish I, using all the worksheets and tests not considered "real" Spanish I?? I have heard this before and I don't buy it. Is the goal of taking Spanish in high school to learn to speak or not---then how does picking apart all those verb tenses help with that? I took French from 4th grade all the way through college----and STILL cannot speak fluently because the focus was on workbooks and verbs! :glare: So---my kids are using Rosetta Stone with all the worksheets and tests---and each year I will list it as Spanish I, Spanish II etc! I have a feeling the "not real Spanish I" police will not be investigating----and hopefully my kids will be actually "speaking' and understanding Spanish :D

So you really like the RS spanish program?

I'm still on the fence for my 12 son and 7 daughter. 10 son wants to continue w/french as he has already had 3 years at a parochial school.
