My son (who is 10) asked to learn 2 new languages...Spanish and French...does anyone know any good programs out there to help him ?

The sad thing is..I took 3 years of French and yet I do not remember hardly any of it,lol.
I would like to help him learn the basics at home, not to sure where to start...any ideas?
Thanks for your help :)

  • i would also maybe ask the school system if they know of any programs you can get him into. That is great that he wants to learn languages. They say you learn them so much easier from a younger age.

  • I have a friend tell me that rosetta stone doesn't work as great as she would've liked. She said it just teaches you wordsd and not sentence structure

  • Im fully bilingual and have my daughter in french language school... Rosetta stone is what i use to help her at home... It is an AMAZING learning tool and has helped her grades come up better than i was able to.... Definitly look into it... also a lot of communities offer french courses as well as spanish for beginners children and adults... Good luck!

  • Rosetta Stone is an amazing program to learn a foreign language and they have different levels. It is very expensive though.

  • can u ask him to pick the most important one? It would be very hard to learn two new languages simultaneously. If you get him to pick his main priority, you can concentrate your efforts, money and tortor fees in that one, if the passion for the next language is still there then he can go after it. If he is only 10, there is nothing wrong with saying he can only pick one for this year
