I love the Spanish language. Personally, I think it is absolutely beautiful. One of my goals in life has been to learn to speak Spanish. However, as I explain to my kids, wanting to do something isn’t the same as actually doing it. It’s a lot of hard work!
Reviewing No Work Spanish is exciting as new ways to learn Spanish always intrigue me. What I didn’t count on is how much my boys would enjoy it. My oldest was ready to try a new language – I was even in the process of selling our Spanish curriculum when these CD’s arrived. Both of my boys have enjoyed listening to the stories and my older son has a renewed interest in learning Spanish. Good thing the curriculum was only “almost” sold. :-)
The format is simple – a story is told chapter by chapter. A few sentences at a time are offered in English then in Spanish. At the end, the entire chapter is given in Spanish.
For my youngest son, he loves Yaks March on Washington. In fact, he has proclaimed the yak to be his new favorite animal. The story is told from the perspective of the family dog. It’s entertaining, funny, and interesting. Personally, I liked Poster Girl as new vocabulary is introduced before each chapter. The No Work Spanish web site contains the pdf transcripts for each CD so that you can follow along. This is a big benefit as you begin listening and learning the vocabulary being used.
I didn’t feel like this is a curriculum in itself. However, I do feel this is a wonderful supplement for those learning Spanish. Anyone learning Spanish will benefit from the opportunity to hear the language spoken and translated in an interesting story format. We’ll be using these as my son (and one day hopefully myself) work through our Spanish curriculum.
