Hola, Great Commission Spanish Introduced at Unvl #homeschool #hsreviews
The boys weren't sure what to think when I told them we would be learning Spanish this year.
I wasn't sure what I was saying either since I only had 3 weeks of Spanish in junior high. That all changed when we were selected to review The Great Commission Languages The Easy Spanish Jr. Edition for Grades K-3,
I love how the program is friendly and fun for the kids. This program is a Christian program and the publisher has a wonderful Statement of Faith
From the very first day we started using the program the boys had fun. We made flash cards using the words from each lesson. Although , note to self for future programs make sure the boys are willing to use the same font so Mom doesn't have to make 2 sets of cards (Cameron is transitioning to cursive so I made him a cursive set of cards).
The coloring and activity sheets included with the program gave the boys something to do while we listened to each lesson.
We even went so far as to get Nathan's stuffed dog out and have a mascot, just like Chichi to add a little more fun to the days the boys were struggling.
The Great Commission Spanish Programs include CDs with the books for audio lessons and print materials.
The program we reviewed ¡El Español Fácil!, Junior Level , retails for $69.00 which is a value to me (if you have read my reviews you know I am very tight when it comes to the money recommendations)
There are enough lessons to last a full year or more and can easily be used again if you start with a Kindergartner or 1st grader, I could easily see coming back to it the next year for a good review.
They even have a discount if you want to order multiple copies for a homeschool co-op. Looking over their other Spanish products, I am looking at the Spanish Children's Song CD which retails for $19.99 as a great addition to the program.

We received a copy of The Easy Spanish jr edition as a member of the Old SchoolHouse Homeschool Crew in exchange for our honest review.
