Spanish for You!

I have always found teaching a foreign language at home a little tricky.  Honestly, I found learning a foreign language in school (spanish in high school and french in college) a little tricky.  I taught my older sons a little Spanish and some Latin.  Honestly, I wasn't looking forward to teaching another round of foreign language.

Enter Spanish for You!

Available for grades 3-8 and for use in a classroom or homeschool (family or individual) settings; Spanish for You! lets the child work at their own pace.  We used a "trial" type kit so I received the ebook and audio files on the computer.  The child learns via listening to the lessons, reading the lessons and writing (learning to use the grammar properly).  The lessons aren't based on LEVELS, they are based on themes, so each theme can be used independently and in any order. 

Honestly, my students were a little young for this curriculum (Bear is Prek4) but we did listen to the audio files and looked at pictures while I pointed things out to them.  They learned some new spanish words to add to their Dora/Diego vocabulary.

I can see where this is a total immersion program and would be a fun thing for the students to use.

Prices are in varying ranges depending on grade and which theme, they can be viewed here.
