Have you or your child ever wanted to learn a foreign language? Now you can learn a foreign language online with Middlebury Interactive Languages. We recently got to review Elementary German 1: Grades 3-5 through their online program and the TOS Crew.
I was thrilled when I learned that you could actually learn a foreign language online. But then there were all the different courses! And they of course all had varying costs and reasons that they were the best. I was so relieved when we got offered this review so that I could stop researching them all!
The course we received is the first semester of the year one German. You can take Elementary German I and II(so a full year), Middle School German I and II, and High School German I and II. So all in all they offer three years worth of the German language. Each course is paid for separately, but that’s a lot of foreign language!
We used this program three days a week. There are 45 lessons. I would have loved for us to be able to use it more, but it just didn’t fit into our schedule. When you use this way to learn a foreign language online, you’re not just watching videos. You’re getting much more. You’re watching videos, being exposed to the written German, hearing it, and seeing images. It helps to make sure all the senses are engaged and ensures more children learn! We were right on with using this three days a week as the suggestion for grades 3-5 is 2-3 lessons a week. So doing three lessons a week with 45 lessons it will take us 15 weeks to finish one semester of German!
Oh and hey mom this is for you. You don’t have to grade their work! The computer does that! Your child will love this. Well at least mine have! The student using this is in 4th grade. Really all of my kids were crowding around to listen and learn. But only one got to control the keyboard!
