TOS Review: Great Commission Languages

.

I am so very glad I was able to review for “Great Commission Languages”. The reason I am glad is because we need to learn Spanish, and Spanish is what they offered us to review. Win-win, all the way around! :-)

 

Here are some sample lessons from their website …

Great Commission Languages was released in December 2004 by Marie Filion Sherwood and Peter Sherwood. They are an evangelical Christian homeschooling family (since 1996). Quoting from their website page “About us”- their products are “unapologetically written from a Christian perspective” and “Extensive cultural information, as well as scripture verses in the foreign language in question, is provided with all our products in the hopes it will assist those desiring to carry out the Great Commission. Having said this, we would also like to point out that our products are not Bible curriculum per se, and the scripture memorization components are optional.

“¡El Español Fácil!, Level I

Order your copy of ¡El Español Fácil!, Level 1. Includes 2 enhanced audio CD’s. Put them in your stereo CD player to follow along as Marita travels from Tulsa OK to visit her cousin Belicia in Ensenada, Mexico. It gets even more fun (and educational) when cousins Erika and Miguel also arrive from Venezuela. Hear the Spanish scripture memory verses and practice the Spanish phonograms. Put the CD’s in your computer, and you can print out free activity sheets your children can do again and again!

Note that this is a 3 year program for younger students, or 1 to 2 year curriculum for older students! It has over 400 pages, and includes beautifull, professional illustrations. The audio CD’s (featuring the voices of native Spanish speakers) have been digitally mastered, bringing you nothing but audio excellence! “

$139.95

The time length of this review was only long enough to do a “try out review”. We did not add this into our daily lives of school. But — we will work it in! This set is for younger students but if you are an older student starting out knowing nothing then this should be fine to start out with.

 

I was sent the spiral bound Level 1 book with the twoCD’s in the back of the book. Also in the back of the book is the Spanish Phongram Cards that you are to pull out and cut-up and use. Or you can order the ones made of cardstock from their website for $10 instead of using the ones from you book – which is regular 20lb paper. — totally up to you!

And remember –I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion and review/blog post. And nothing else …..zip, zilch, nada, and what-ever else, yadda-yadda ~smile~
