    I am looking for a Spanish program to use for high school.  We have only a dabbling in foreign language so will need something that starts at the basics.  My DD is dyslexic so I would like to find something that is speaking, not writing and reading.  Do they need the writing and reading portion to count it as a high school credit?  I just think that when she is struggling to read and spell her own language it would be an unnecessary frustration to tell her that now she has to learn to read and write in a foreign language, too.  I am open to web based or an online class.

    We are going to try Spanish 1-4 with Embedded Geography via Aim Academy online (Debra Bell) for both ds14 (9th) with zero previous learning and dd10 (6th) with one year of learning.  It is more speaking and communicating focused from what I see. DS14 is not particularly interested in any language and while not dyslexic, he struggles more with language arts skills.

    We chose American Sign Language, because it is not a written language. It worked well for us.

     

    Some colleges count ASL as foreign language credit, and some don’t.

    Thanks for the input.

    I like the idea of ASL and it has always intrigued me.  I’ve learned a little.  But, DD is very interested in Spanish right now … and Norwegian.

    Ha.  We have a new family in our co-op and the dad is Norwegian.  😊

    My DH spent two years in Norway and became fluent in the language. He won’t claim being fluent but Norwegians couldn’t tell he wasn’t Norwegian. He is quite rusty with it since he has no one to speak it.  That is where her Norwegian interest has come from.  He has taught her some phrases.
