I learned Spanish in early elementary school, beginning in the first grade. I remember that my teacher had shown us slides from her trip to Mexico and something about oeuvres. I can still count to ten in Spanish.
So can my children! When we began homeschooling last September, I wanted to start Greek. I ordered Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! – The Reader from Amazon. It goes through the Greek alphabet and has pictures of four-year-old Andrew doing funny poses to mimic the letters. The kids loved it! They are both able to name most of the letters by sight.
However; this year, I want their foreign language skills to start moving beyond letters and into something conversational. My husband and I decided that Spanish would be the most beneficial. Besides counting to ten, they also know most of their colors and some directional words. I am just having trouble finding a program for them. I don’t want to use Rosetta Stone because costs and the other preschool programs that I checked into were out of our budget.
Does anyone have suggestions for a nice online program for young children?
