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!
