New Spanish Courses

This is just a little update on this Spanish learning experiment. My kids finished lesson 37 today. I record the lesson, then have them watch it. I gauge their reaction to the lesson and adjust accordingly for the next lesson.

We just started working on learning the verb TENER – to have. It is working well to start with a joke or a quote. I post many of these on instagram and Facebook. I ask them if they can guess what it means- they love that! then with the new sentences, I keep the translations covered giving them time to guess what it means. This approach is working pretty well.

The trick to learning Spanish is to repeat and speak. And I am very pleased to see the progress my kids are making. I need to make some more quizzes, my kids really enjoy those. Some of my older kids didn’t appreciate the repetition, so I created the separate basics course and streamlined course for older kids and adults for that matter.

The comprehensive course is great for kids who need direction in their study and learning. They need to be told when to repeat, asked what things mean and challenged to speak. Older kids may just need the info with the pronunciation example and then they can practice and learn just fine on their own. So that is what I did!

Click below to check out the basics course- it covers the alphabet, pronunciation, numbers, colors, days of the week, months of the year, useful phrases and introductions.

Amber

Amber moved to Guadalajara, Mexico with her family when she was just 7 years old. They all learned and spoke Spanish there and lived there for 5+ years, visiting frequently. Amber studied Spanish all through high school and minored in it in college. She learned a lot about learning languages when she and her family moved to France and took on the challenge of learning French. She has also learned a lot about teaching kids since she has been homeschooling her 8 from the start. Amber has taken all she has learned from all these experiences to make this Spanish course specifically for kids to be able to start speaking Spanish right away. The focus is on helping kids learn to make sentences and to learn vocabulary words in context. Speaking, listening, practicing and repeating make this program a winner when it comes to helping kids learn Spanish!
