Hola! Learn Spanish with REAL Homeschool Spanish TOS Crew Review

Pin It Now!

  I don't know about you, but I took 4 years of French in High school. Today Spanish seems to be the language of choice for many schools, I know my son who is in Public High school is taking his 3rd year of Spanish as well as Italian this year. My boys that I homeschool have been begging to start a Spanish curriculum, but honestly I did not know where to start and I was feeling a little overwhelmed by teaching them a language I was not completely familiar with. This is why when presented with the opportunity to review REAL Homeschool Spanish as part of the TOS Crew I knew that God had answered my prayers. This curriculum had my interest right from the beginning as it is great for learning on the go as well in the classroom, since the MP3 audio files can go on a portable device we can learn where ever our day takes us.

   REAL Homeschool Spanish was created for Homeschoolers not revamped to fit around homeschooling. Their curriculum is also developed so that the whole family can learn and enjoy at the same time. No need for the parent/teacher to learn it ahead of time. Their Motto is R-Relax E-Enjoy A-Aspire L-Learn Spanish. It really cannot get much simpler than that.

  We were given their downloadable curriculum that is on sale right now for $49.95, and for only $10 more you can also get the daily curriculum guides as well. If you are an in your hands kind of family then the option of a hard copy which is retailing for $89.95, with the same curriculum guides for only $10 more may be the better way for you to go.  You receive audio files as well as text and workbook style programming so do not worry, they have all the bases covered for you. You will learn the Spanish in a variety of ways as you begin by learning the vocabulary by conversation and speaking and listening to the audio files so that you will hear the spoken language.

Now do keep in mind this is not a Spanish derived from Spain, it is from South and Central American, for us that was not important but it may be for you and I just want to let you know that up front. Now we have that out of the way, here is some more info. I loved how the learning is incorporated into your complete day, because this was made specifically with homeschoolers in mind, the learning is not only great for class time but fun to use through out your family's day. Along with the workbook style assignments there are so many fun games and activities that it makes it so enjoyable to learn the kids will not even realize they are doing school. This all comes with a curriculum planning guide and chart so you can be organized and set forth the path your family will take on this learning adventure. This fits in well with our curriculum we are already using since we are exploring countries and cultures.

     On the REAL Homeschool Spanish website you can not only by the curriculum, but there is so much to find there to help make the learning process more fun and informative, there are links to Mayan Culture and quizzes and don't forget the games, because this is supposed to be FUN, remember? Learning Homeschool style would not be complete with some fun in the kitchen, so do not forget to check out the recipes, that are coming soon to this area of their site. Now this programming is geared to kids aged 5-13 or K- 7th or 8th grade but keep in mind it is set up for the whole family to learn so adults please join in the fun as well as older siblings. My boys are in 7th and 8th grade and we all enjoyed it immensely. It is so much fun to see them engaging in Spanish conversation with their older brother.

  So please if you or your children have been wanting to learn a second or even a third or fourth language and Spanish is not something you are familiar with, please do not let that stop you. Give REAL Homeschool Spanish a try today and you will be on your way to a whole new world of learning.

  Please be sure to visit my fellow crew mates and see what there families have been up to with REAL Homeschool Spanish.

                                     Adios! for now
