Learn Spanish like you learned your first language -- through context and visual cues -- and in fun, life-like situations. This way of learning a foreign language is natural and enjoyable for children and parents alike. Students will understand and start speaking Spanish within the very first few lessons. For Ages 3+. This colorful, musical, and entertaining video program offers a new way for children and adults to learn Spanish. It is appropriate for new learners, as a supplement for students learning Spanish in school, and for teachers looking for a fun and engaging Spanish program for their students. The video series teaches Spanish through short stories featuring kids speaking Spanish in a variety of practical and amusing real-life situations. The lessons use a gradual, building block immersion, with creative and entertaining graphics and visuals to help children understand, remember, and enjoy Spanish as they learn. This way of learning foreign language is being received with overwhelming enthusiasm by parents and teachers and this year the Curriculum has been adopted by public school district in New Jersey for more than 60 elementary schools.
A Wonderful Change of Pace

This is an excellent DVD to supplement classroom instruction, or get children of any age started with Spanish. I use it in my Spanish classroom because it is one of the few DVDs I've found that successfully imitates immersion. The stories are engaging and memorable, with lots of context and visual cues, and my middle-school students pick up a new word or two every time they watch.
Our Favorite Foreign Language Program we've Found!
by: Rebecca Spooner
We loved this DVD. It is a high quality Spanish program that builds on the videos before it. We have tried numerous foreign language curriculums and never found a Spanish program that our kids both enjoyed and retained. Highly recommend this DVD, can't wait to buy the workbooks next for a complete curriculum for our oldest son in the new year!
Second DVD More Challenging But As Good As The First One.
The second volume of this DVD did not disappoint us. The videos are once again fun. It is exciting to see that the second DVD is a higher level of spanish and my son is able to follow along! The lessons do what all great education tools should do: entertain, simplify and repeat. This DVD is a little more challenging for my wife and I and we need to watch it more times to catch up with our son. I will say that we don't mind because we are enjoying learning along with him and he likes that too. I wish something like this had been around when I was his age. I'm looking forward to more volumes in the future.
A Fun Way To Learn Spanish
by: Jeff Zarnick
We already have volume 1 and were thrilled when our daughter ASKED US to get volume 2! It's a great continuity from the first dvd and funny. Words learned from volume 1 return and are added to build longer sentences in sketches easy to follow and entertaining. Figuring out the words by watching the skits is actually fun and all of us (even mom and dad) are learning. The second dvd is a higher level (advanced beginner/early intermediate?) and it really feels good that we can watch these stories in all Spanish (no translations) and understand them. Every time we watched we learned more and felt more at ease hearing the language. Definitely a fun way to learn Spanish, for kids and their parents!

These videos are the best method to learn Spanish that I have found -- much better than high school Spanish and the other programs I have tried. The spanish is shown with great visuals that make it a lot easier for me to remember. I am happy with this product.
