I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good Spanish curriculum for a Homeschool coop. The children would be from 5-9 years old. Any ideas would be great. Thank you.

Does anyone teach spanish, or use any spanish curriculum with their children? I am surprised that no one has answered me, I thought a lot of homeschoolers started second languages early. Any foreign language curr advice would be great.

I know Rosetta Stone is supposed to be good-we're going to start the French program this fall. Would that be practical for what you want? It's a computer program.

Not really, I'm looking for something that is more like a public school curriculum that starts with greetings and teaches spanish that is conversational. I have a lot of supplemental work but I really need a good foundation. I will be teaching once every other week but I would like something that al the children can do at home so that we are all on the same page when we get together.

days free. I just ordered it, but I haven't received it yet so I cannot personally vouch for it.

Other good websites for info I found are:
http://www.multilingualchildren.org/
http://www.nncc.org

Hope that helps you!
