    Learn your lesson phrases from listening to el maestro (the teacher) on DVD! Use this as initial instruction or as a follow up. Listening to a native Spanish speaker is wonderful for pronunciation. The speaker is a lovely lady who is smiles and is encouraging. She speaks clearly and slowly with pauses for your child to repeat the words. There is a video for each of the 24 lessons and navigating the DVD is a cinch. Each lesson is concluded by a “little moments” segment where you see/hear the vocabulary one more time. There is a lot of English used in the videos which make them very parent friendly. Each lesson lasts around 5 minutes.

    Subtitled "Beginning Spanish for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," this book serves as a great introduction for the family who wants to "try out" the language before investing in a full-fledged Spanish course. This book contains 177 short lessons (usually a page in length), which are straightforward and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. Lessons are self-paced, self-explanatory, and offer plenty of practice exercises. Lessons that introduce new Spanish vocabulary feature a new Spanish word, its English translation, and often a pronunciation tip, followed by about ten sentences to translate. Grammar lessons introduce concepts and verb forms gradually; as verb forms are introduced, they are added to a chart, which students use to aid in translating sentences. For pronunciation help, the author provides free, downloadable MP3 audio files on his website, which can be used with the lessons. Because this book is a non-reproducible worktext (not a workbook), it can be used with multiple students. (The author recommends writing the translating exercises in a separate notebook.). Overall, this course teaches students about 100 vocabulary words, gives them a grasp of basic Spanish grammar, and makes them comfortable translating simple Spanish sentences. After completing this program, students will be ready to tackle a "regular" Spanish program with confidence – and they will be off to a good head start! ~ Lisa

    If you're looking for a simple but fairly thorough way to learn Spanish, this book teaches it in 15 straightforward grammatical steps. You'll learn Spanish the way people naturally acquire a language, with each step building upon the one before. First you learn the elements of a sentence with steps including: Nouns, Articles, and Adjectives; Estar, Ser, and Subject Pronouns; Hay, Interrogative Words, Days, and Months; Numbers, Dates, and Time; Regular Verbs; Irregular Verbs; Ir and the Future; Adjectives and Adverbs; and Negatives and Prepositions. Then you move on to more complicated steps like Indirect Objects, Direct Objects, Reflexive Verbs, Present Subjunctive, Preterit Tense, and finally Imperfect Tense. Each chapter contains clear grammar explanations and students will need to make sure they understand every concept before moving to the next or they may struggle to keep up. The book explains each component of Spanish grammar in an uncomplicated way, with plenty of examples to help students understand. After the explanations, varied written and oral exercises are included so students get used to reading, writing, and speaking in Spanish. While speaking with a native Spanish speaker is the best way to learn how to pronounce the words correctly, a pronunciation guide is included in the book that's very helpful in describing how words should be pronounced. Each chapter also includes Spanish readings with comprehension questions to help students learn new vocabulary and practice reading aloud. Some may find that there's not enough review or drills in this book to help them cement the language into their head, because it does move rather quickly from step to step. However, if students are willing stay with each step until they truly understand the section and have memorized the vocabulary words, this program will give them a working knowledge of the language and allow them to communicate in everyday Spanish. You'll need a Spanish/English dictionary to get the most out of this book because while some of the Spanish words are shown with their English translation (including over 300 of the most commonly used verbs), many are not and the actual number of vocabulary words (specifically nouns) is limited. Overall, this is a great book that can quickly give students the knowledge they need to comminute in Spanish with confidence. An answer key for all the exercises is included in the back.

    These should be called BIG blank bingo cards! Each card measures 7.75"x 10", the squares are 1.5" and there is space at the top for child's name or a game title above the BINGO. Cards are white w/black lines and an empty gray square in the middle. 36 cards are 2 sided, so you could do a LOT with this set. Have kids write in vocabulary words for spelling, science or reading, then play bingo and have them define or spell the words if they win. Teach colors or numbers to pre-kinders. Write out numbers in Spanish (or other language) and call out numbers in English in regular Bingo style for practice. Put stickers of animals in the squares for pre-readers. Write math problems in the squares and call out the answer, so students have to work a problem to win. You could make a set for addition, subtraction, etc. Put pictures of family members in the squares and play Bingo at a family gathering. If you make something amazing, laminate the cards to make them last. They are already made of heavy card stock. Great for homeschools, in a co-op, classroom, or Sunday school. ~ Sara
