    I am looking to do a basic year one spanish.  This would be done as a family.  I would like something that is just listening and repeating.  Using either a very easy to understand audio or DVD.  I would like to have things possible to add for the high school level.  What have you used and enjoyed.  If it’s something I could borrow from the library that would be even better for cost purposes.  Thanks Misty

    We’ve enjoyed La Clase Divertida. It has workbooky stuff we skip.

    We will be using Speaking Spanish with Miss Mason and François by Cherrydale Press in our co-op next year. Another option is The Learnables.

    Is there a way to see sample pages of the Speaking Spanish with Miss Mason and Francois and/or sample audio before purchasing? I didn’t see anything on the Cherrydale Press website.

     

    Thanks!

    LOL Okay never mind. I decided to do a quick google search and immediately the Well Trained Mind forum had addressed this and there was a link to see sample pages.

     

    In case anyone else is interested:

    Am I to understand the audio and book is $20?  So you listen to the audio and learn to re-peat?

    Regarding Cherrydale’s book (thanks for the GoogleDocs link, pinkballerina) — so you have one page of English facing one page of Spanish for each “lesson” right? I see it gets into past tense in volume 2, presumably on verbs that were already previously learned in present tense. I’m a little confused on “grammar” though because I’m seeing no explanations. Does it offer any instruction or reasoning as to why verbs have the endings they do? Discussion of regular vs irregular verbs? Of course that can be had from external resources, I realize.

    And then regarding the Cherrydale’s audio, is that just a straight read through of the Spanish text pages for each lesson, read one sentence at a time from start to finish, with or without a pause for the listener to repeat?

    ETA: I just realized there was some material in the preface I didn’t read — maybe the answers are found there. If so, I apologize! I will read that over more carefully.

    We are going to start Spanish this fall and will be using these two sites:

    Destinos  and Spanish at Headventure Land. We’ll try our hand at some of the Greek and Latin at H.L. as well.
