Category Description for Breaking the Spanish Barrier Level 1:
Level 1 (Beginner) requires no prior language experience but getting used to new sounds and spellings can take practice. This level, therefore, spends a lot of time on pronunciation.

Category Description for Breaking the Language Barrier Programs:

The Breaking the Language Barrier (BLB) provides a core text/workbook/reference (aka the worktext) all in a one-on-one conversational format for the student. While other programs focus on listening and speaking alone, BLB provides in-depth grammar, writing and culture. Start out with conversation right away as part of Level 1’s Ten Steps. This section provides the student time to get familiar with the sounds of the language without any stress of grammar. All grammar will be explained in the lessons that follow. Your student will write directly in the non-reproducible worktext. Parents, don’t worry as you won’t need to know the language.

New for ‘20-21 is the Online Instruction for the student (1 year access). The online access code provides 12 months of access to the online version of the print textbook, with integrated audio, video, cultural articles, answers, beautiful pictures of sites of interest, and notable people from the country being studied. The exercises are interactive. A student can click on any single answer, see immediately if he/she is right or wrong, and view the correction. There are also responsive flashcards with sound files, oral questions, video instructional capsules. But the content -- explanations, exercises, and dialogues are the same as the print book. Activities closely follow the worktext, but the online does not replace the worktext, rather they work together to create a complete learning experience. Homeschool Packages with CD are available while supplies last. The online instruction has replaced the CDs, and the CDs have been phased out by the publisher.

Level 1 (Beginner) requires no prior language experience but getting used to new sounds and spellings can take practice. This level, therefore, spends a lot of time on pronunciation. Level 2 (Intermediate) starts with good review of Level 1 before presenting new material. Level 3 (Advanced) reviews the first two years, adding more advanced grammar concepts, expressions, and geography.

Each course is one year in length and should qualify for a high school credit. The Homeschool Package is required to successfully use the program. Digital Access Homeschool packages include the aforementioned website access, and the following print resources: the Student Worktext, Answer Key, Test Packet, and a small pocket, laminated pocket guide (Oasis). Worktext and Tests are consumable, not reproducible. Package components are also available separately. ~Sara

My son is showing interest in learning Spanish. I have been recently trying to learn myself and already know the basics. I am hoping I can use this to teach him the basics.
Kamie K on Nov 29, 2021
From what I could find, it is one of the only language programs that a parent did not need to know the language to still allow the student to have success in learning it without a hands on teacher.

Two people recommended this course. Looking through it, I think is going to be a good choice. Colleges like written elements.

We have used duolingo for the last two years, and while fun and easy, my kids haven't progressed at all. I am hoping this more structured course will help my homeschooled 8th grader get a firm grasp on Spanish, and I'm planning on relearning with her, since it's been 20+ years since I studied Spanish in college. This one looks thorough and interesting.

Teacher does not need to know Spanish. the program appears to be well rounded, engaging, and challenging at the same time
Marie F on Jun 3, 2021
This looked like a good option based on the video and because it came with so much extra content about the culture. I also liked the audio included.

What age or grade level is this curriculum recommended for?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I've started this program with my son's in grade 9. They enjoy the online option. Tests are well designed to ensure retainment, compression, and accurate assessment. We are also supplementing online with the ulat, and the free app Duolingo.
If I have 2 students doing this program at the same time, can I just purchase 1 package with online access plus extra consumables, or would each student need their own online access code?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The course is designed to be each student with their own online access.

Very memorization heavy
Perhaps this is a Classical style curriculum, but my teens and I found this to be extremely "memorize this long list of words" heavy -- and not even the most useful words. Within the first two weeks of an introduction to Spanish, the students are expected to memorize the word for sister in law. Almost no reading exercises -- just memorization and some speaking.

The one thing that I did like was the online portion where the students can listen to native speakers. Everything in the textbook is duplicated online. It's odd, however, that the beginning pronunciation rules do not jive with the way the native speakers then pronounce the words!

As much as I invested in this curriculum, we have decided to cut out losses and use it as a secondary source.
