We completed the Yellow Level of our Hooked on Spanish program this week. That means that weâ€™ll likely be done with the Red Level before Christmas!
I wasnâ€™t really expecting full fluency at the end of 24 Spanish lessons. But I also wasnâ€™t expecting to fly through said 24 lessons as quickly as we have. Note to self: start researching other Spanish curricula.
What have we accomplished in 12 lessons?
Weâ€™ve learned â€œHelloâ€ and â€œGood-bye,â€ can count to ten, learned our colors and shapes, and know how to say how old we are.
I guess the best measure of retention is illustrated by the fact that the kids only shout â€œAdios, adios!â€ as Daddy leaves for work. Or that Henry will start counting something and self-correct and start over in Spanish. Or that they still ask Daddy what the Spanish Word of the Day is. So itâ€™s all good.
Iâ€™m actually looking forward to the things weâ€™ll learn in the Red Level. Then maybe weâ€™ll have to move to a Spanish-speaking country and immerse ourselves in language there.
