I promised an update on how we like our PowerSpeak Spanish program and a lovely reader reminded me I haven’t done it yet! We’ve been using it for about 5 months now and I have to say we still LOVE it! (Click here to read my initial review)
This program really makes learning a language fun and exciting. As a parent I love the features they have on your dashboard. You can have more than one student (they each login separately) and it has a parent section so you can go in and check progress, grades etc. We definitely plan to continue on to Spanish 2 when we’ve finished with Spanish 1.
The only thing I don’t like is that they don’t have more lessons! Currently they only offer Language Levels 1 & 2 for elementary level students, each level is 6 months to complete, so you could potentially do both in a year. So that means there’ll be a big break, then the next avail. lessons are Levels 1-2 for middle school. I think that might bit of a jump for my 7 year old to move into a middle school program, so I will probably have to look for something in between until she’s a little older. A PowerSpeak rep. said they are working on some in between classes, but they won’t be released for awhile yet. So it’s just something to consider depending on the age of your children.
Other than that, I love the program, my DD loves doing it and the younger ones typically sit and listen while she is doing her lessons because they think its fun. She’s learning well and seems to be remembering the information, so that means we give a big THUMBS UP for PowerSpeak!
