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. Audio CDs provide clear pronunciation, and the book prompts you where to go on the CD. With the launch of the online access, CDs will continue to be available in the bundles without online access and a la carte. New for ‘20-21 is the Online Instruction for the student (1 year access). With cultural videos of native speakers, this element adds a new level of interaction with the language, providing a model for authentic pronunciation. Students can respond to online exercises and get immediate feedback on their progress. Activities closely follow the worktext. This component does not replace the worktext. They work in tandem to create a complete curriculum.

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 pronuncia¬tion. 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 con¬cepts, expressions, and geography.

Each course is a year in length and should qualify for a high school credit. To use the program, you must use the Homeschool Package. Each Homeschool Package includes the student book, an answer key booklet, 2 CD audio set, a printed test packet and a small, laminated pocket language guide. You can also purchase a Homeschool Package w/Online Access (same components, minus the CD). Levels 1-3 packages include all levels of the Homeschool Package. Rainbow Resource also offers components a la carte. The Student Worktext provides interactive instruction and consumable practice (includes a reference/glossary/index). Answer Keys are for all text exer¬cises. Audio CDs use native speakers and a 6-part adventure series, with comprehension questions. Tests (with answers) are available on CD-ROM or preprinted and are reproducible.
