I decided this month to no longer take the kids down the street to Spanish class. The class at the school isn’t bad, but it is a time-suck, and I just don’t have the time to run there and back and there again multiple times a day.
I was in urgent need of some sort of Spanish program. There are lots of great ones on the market, but I really need a solution I don’t have to wait on. Having it be free is a total bonus.
Special thanks to Scrappin Doodles for the cute clip art used in this post.
Here are my free Spanish finds of the week:
DuoLingo– a neat translation based language tool. I have used it for German and learned a lot!
Mango Spanish – many public libraries offer Mango for free. This program includes cultural information.
Salsa Spanish– 42 free video lessons.
KnowItAll Spanish– More awesome video lessons.
If you have Amazon Prime, these programs are FREE (Try it for free to sample the programs and see how it works!)
On a Budget
Getting Started with Spanish- appropriate for older students (above grade 3 I would say)
Song School Spanish- for kids K-3
One on One Spanish Tutoring- Homeschool Spanish Academy offers lessons at a fantastic price if you want a native Spanish speaker teaching your child. This is the company we use, and I can’t recommend them enough.
I’ve also started to put together some printable resources for the kids to use- hopefully there will be many more to come!
