    The town of Machi Koro is a dismal sight: a single wheat field, a bakery, and some coins. But, under its newly elected mayor (you!), the town is ready to grow! The game starts with a series of 15 cards laid out in the center of the table. Each card represents an establishment, ranging from wheat fields to stadiums, and has an associated dice value (such as 9-10) and an effect, such as "get one coin from the bank on anyone's turn." Some cards let you take money from the bank, and some force other players to pay you! Players take turns rolling the dice, checking if they get any money from their cards, and building more cards to make more money. As the game progresses, players can build fancier, more expensive buildings which provide more income, effects, and cover a wider range of die rolls. The ultimate goal is to construct all four unique starting cards, which are expensive but provide a significant bonus to your other establishments. The first player to build all four wins! For those looking for an easier, more casual strategy game with plenty of fun and replayability, this fits the bill. ~30 minutes. For 2-4 players.

    It's the same! But, different. Leaving the world of CDs behind, Rosetta Stone Homeschool has taken the leap into the world of online subscription formats. As with every major format change, there are advantages and disadvantages. You will probably like the changes which provide more mobility and more flexibility (unless you do not have access to high speed internet or do not wish to enter the internet world). All the aspects of the Rosetta Stone approach to language acquisition that we've come to love and expect are there. It's just packaged differently.

    So, what's different? First of all, there are only four products (instead of the 70 or so we carried before). Each product is an online subscription. This subscription gives one student 24 months of access. You purchase a subscription then you choose your language as part of the activation process. There are 24 languages available and a subscription purchase lets you choose any one of the 24 (Family Pack subscribers can choose up to three different languages). The subscription also gives you access to ALL levels of instruction available in that language. All languages have at least three levels. Some languages have five levels. If workbooks, quizzes, or tests are available (only for a few languages), access to pdf versions of this material comes with the subscription. Because all content is online, you can access it from a computer, laptop, or mobile device and you can access it from anywhere that you have a fast internet connection. You can even download lessons (with Audio Companion) to use when the internet is not available.

    So, what's the same? The dynamic immersion instructional methodology, the voice recognition software, and the student tracking abilities. In other words, all the good stuff that has made Rosetta Stone distinctive and a favorite with homeschoolers. And there is still a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with the program. To get a sense of the program, check out the video demo found on our website.

    Rosetta Stone's "Dynamic Immersion™" methodology combines multimedia technology with a total immersion approach utilizing four aspects images, intuition, interactivity, and instruction. Real-life images are coupled with words or phrases, both spoken and written. There is constant interaction with the program, making selections which are confirmed if correct. Understanding of the language is built through spoken responses to real-life simulations utilizing TruAccent® speech-recognition technology which listens, analyzes, and corrects the student response. [Headset with microphone is needed but not included.]

    Core Lessons cover: A. Listening & Reading combined; B. Listening only, C. Reading only, D. Speaking, and E. Writing. There are Focused Activities that concentrate on language skills vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, speaking, listening, writing and Adaptive Recall which are review sequences. While the general content and methodology is similar between the various Rosetta Stone versions, the Homeschool version is unique in giving parents the ability to plan and track the student's progress through the lessons and activities and to print data reports.

    Rosetta Stone Levels (in any language) cover the following material:

    Level 1 Build a Foundation. Fundamental vocabulary, essential language structure, basic conversational skills including greetings and introductions. Includes colors, adjectives, numbers, prepositions, definite and indefinite articles, singular and plural nouns, family relations, the five senses and time of day.

    Level 2 Navigate Your Surroundings. Builds on vocabulary and essential language structure. Giving/getting directions, using transportation, telling time, dining out, and enjoying basic social interactions. Includes verb tenses, adverbs, formal imperatives, school subjects, months, and emotions.

    Level 3 Connect with the World. Builds on language fundamentals and conversational skills. Learn to share ideas and opinions, express your feelings and talk about everyday life, your interests, your work, subjective, present perfect, weights, and measurements.

    Level 4 Deepen Your Understanding. Expands on what you learned in Levels 1, 2, and 3. Negotiate complex situations with confidence. Develop conversational skills to navigate the workplace, care for your health, arrange repairs, and move abroad.

    Level 5 Develop Your Command of the Language. Refine crucial communication skills and make full use of everything you've learned in Levels 1-4. Discuss entertainment and culture, government and the marketplace, and celebrate language-learning success.

    The following languages are available (with number of levels in parenthesis): Arabic (3), Chinese (Mandarin) (3), Dutch (3), English (American) (5), English (British) (5), Filipino (Tagalog) (3), French (5), German (5), Greek (3), Hebrew (3), Hindi (3), Irish (3), Italian (5), Japanese (3), Korean (3), Persian (Farsi) (3), Polish (3), Portuguese (Brazil) (3), Russian (3), Spanish (Latin American) (5 Workbooks for Levels 1-3), Spanish (Spain) (5), Swedish (3), Turkish (3), and Vietnamese (3).

    In terms of high school credit equivalency (as before) Rosetta Stone is not "accredited" because it is not a school, but each level of the Homeschool program has a "Full Year Curriculum" lesson plan. If you follow that lesson plan, each level will be a 36 week program if you're not using the supplemental (suggestions in teacher materials) materials, or 45 weeks if you are (equivalent to 1 school year). Not all schools or boards will accept RS as credit, so checking to ensure it will be accepted is recommended.

    While it's a bit sad to say "good-bye" to Rosetta Stone's old standby CD-based program, it's easy to see the advantages and necessity of increased mobility. Thankfully, favorite features have been retained and the program remains a strong option for high school foreign language. As before, we encourage the use of a grammar workbook to complement the strong conversational aspect of the program. ~ Janice

    Five hundred pages of art history in a 5x6.5" book? What? Yes, it's true and I love it! Imagine a big beautiful coffee table style book, full of beautiful color photos arranged chronologically, that you can easily pick up and read. It is a comprehensive reference book with a helpful index in the back, perfect for adding to any art curriculum or even your world history program. Periods include pre- and early history (40,000-500 BCE); antiquity; late antiquity & the middle ages; renaissance; baroque; 18th century; 19th century; 20th century before 1945; and art after 1945. For families concerned about nudity, there are several statues and paintings depicting both males and females in various states of undress. I counted about 50 among the 900 images in the book. The variety of artists is outstanding. The text is interesting and very readable, and the information is factual and solid. For a student interested in art, this book is a must have. 512pp, pb (1.5" thick). ~ Sara

      This book is a reprint of what was once Volume 1 of the My Book House series published in 1937. This wonderful collection of nursery rhymes was gathered from all over the world. More than 350 nursery rhymes and children’s poems are featured with colored and/or black and white illustrations that remind me of the old “Dick and Jane” style of pictures. This book an unabridged reprint and includes Japanese lullabies, American Indian songs, Russian rhymes, and Mother Goose stories, from authors such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Christina Rossetti. The table of contents is shown in alphabetical order rather than page order, which makes it a little easier to find specific titles in the book. I remember some of these from my childhood, but there are many I’ve never read before. Enjoy sharing these with your children! 224 pgs., p/b. ~ Donna

    Based on a true story, this is the incredible tale of Manjiro Nakahama, a Japanese boy who was essentially exiled from his own country due to a tragic shipwreck and the isolationist policy of Japan during the 1840's. After being rescued by an American whaling boat, Manjiro becomes the first Japanese person to ever enter the U.S and eventually plays a key role in opening Japan's ports to American ships. This well-written work by author Rhoda Blumberg is also beautifully illustrated with Japanese ink drawings. ~ Anh

    Survivors of the first atomic bomb to be dropped on a city have an amazing story. Five Japanese and one German who survived the blast, which killed a hundred thousand, have their stories told in this book. They not only survived the bomb itself, they also lived into the future. This book tells the rest of the story, as it was, and in some cases how it had ended, four decades later when the author returned to the city of Hiroshima. 152 pgs. ~ Zach
