I have four children 5 - 13 years old who all learned from this program They included everything we needed for all crafts I purchased an etra student pak &extra craft pack It seemed expensive at the time but all four were able to learn and we since have purchased Levels 2 & 3 They are definately Christian which is a positive for our family Teacher prep was nil since everything is included(except for the starch needed for the pinata) It works well with different learning styles as you listen watch write and speak/sing with each lesson Highly recommended!!

I knew that I wanted to teach my 6 year old Spanish but I was lacking any clear direction as to how I would go about doing that We started La Clase Divertida Level 1 in October and it quickly became a comfortable and enjoyable part of our homeschooling routine We follow the recommended schedule of alternating between the DVD and the CD each day for two weeks ending with a cooking activity or craft of some sort before moving on to the next lesson It is the perfect amount of time to spend on each lesson and I have found that my son (and I!) are learning very quickly! My 2 year old even sings some of the songs and he loves to watch the DVD! We especially love the cooking activities and find them to be a nice way to bring Mexican culture to life(You cover other Spanish-speaking cultures in the other levels) The preparation required for La Clase is minimal- if there is a craft or cooking segment you just need to be sure you have any extra materials/ingredients on hand Of course when learning a new language Practice is essential! So practice practice practice!Also while La Clase would be effective for the entire stated age range I have to agree that the older set might find the whole setup to be juvenile Look at it this way though- You and your child(ren) WILL learn Spanish from Senor Gamache and his students And it will seem effortless Plus if you ever have any concerns or questions during the course of using the curriculum you can always contact Senor Gamache I have exchanged emails with him on several occasions and he has always been very gracious and helpful You can't beat that kind of customer support!

I'm a single homeschool mom of 8 of which 5 are still being schooled Last year we began the La Clase Divertida for my 4 youngest students 8-12 What a blast! Even I was walking around singing the songs that went with the lessons The crafts are so fun and learning to make wedding cookies was yummy The only thing I would caution is it is too much fun and you will learn even if it is unintentional!

My family loves this program! We have finished level one and have just started level twoMy kids are in 3rd and 5th grades They love seeing kids their own ages on the dvds plus they love doing the cooking and crafts- and seeing Senor Gamache's dog in class All these things make the program very real and interesting for them Senor Gamache is very lively and fun- his love for children and Spanish is readily apparent We have tried other Spanish programs but none has this kind of pizzazzThis program is so much more than memorizing words and repeating them I would say it could work for just about any type of learner- visual auditory or kinesthetic There is so much to do see hear learn and singOne of the best parts is that I am learning Spanish right along with my kidsWe will definitely continue on with level three in the future!

I purchased this for my 4th grade and kindergarten student. (My 4 year old nephew also does the videos with us). I used curriculum last year that Wad not working. Learning a foreign language ought to be fun, especially at this age. The videos are good (a bit outdated but still good). The kids love the songs, they sing them all day long while playing and doing other homework as well. Why I didn't give it 5 stars...I took Spanish in college so have some working knowledge of the language, however I feel more information could have been put in the teachers Manual. For example, hand motions/English translation for the vocab song.

This was even better than we anticipated! The DVDs have complete lessons that you watch over and over Although that can seem mundane it really isn't because it takes many times to master what they want you to learn and speak There is no teacher preparation although I would recommend watching this with your students -- I've only been watching periodically and they now speak better Spanish than I do! Everything you need comes with the kit (enough for two students which is wonderful!) We will be back for part 2!

After trying several other Spanish programs we finally hit the jackpot! Senor Gamache's DVD lessons are not only instructional but entertaining! My boys ages 5-11 have enjoyed Spanish for the first time Teacher prep is non existent supplies for crafts are all there crafts and recipes are demonstrated on the DVD Thank you Senor Gamache this is truly a FUN CLASS!

Interactive Spanish
This is a wonderful and interactive Spanish program. It is filled with songs, crafts and cooking activities. My kids really learned a lot from this. The songs are so catchy. The kids can't help but learn them.

I would like to see an example of a lesson, is that available?. If I order this Level 1 and find it is to young for my 6 & 8th grader is it returnable ?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry but we do not have sample pages beyond what you can see on the website. If you contact the consultants (consultants@rainbowresource.com) we may be able to help you further. The Level 1 program can be returned as long as it hasn't been written in or damaged and the electronic media has not been opened. We need to be able to re-sell it as new.
What are the "system requirements" listed on the box? In other words, what operating system (for the computer) does this work with? For instance, Windows XP.
A shopper on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello, my Level 1 curriculum kit did not have any computer files included or needed. The printed, bound teachers' manual in the kit provides guidance on how the authors would recommend using their curriculum. Generally, you spend two weeks on one lesson, alternating between watching a DVD of the lessons and listening to a CD to reinforce the lessons. There are two copies of consumable student manuals, and there are craft/activity suggestions with some necessary supplies included. I'm using this with my young children, and so far we really enjoy it. Older chldren/adults may prefer to use a software-based course.
