In this post, I have your second video of the 3-part series, Grandparent’s Day Spanish.
I’m glowing a little (a lot) from the positive comments on the blog from video #1.
You can find the first video on this blog post:
Grandparent’s Day Spanish Video 1
I particularly enjoyed this comment from Shona.
I am lucky enough to be able to share them with my tres nietos aged 12, 11 and 8 who are now learning Spanish at school in England. They spend a lot of time with us when we are in Tenerife where we live for part of each year. They appreciate the fun and up to date themes of your lessons and they give an extra dimension to their school experience.
I love it!
The traditional methods in schools can be very dry and dull. When kids have fun learning, it is a beautiful thing.
I went from a distinction in grade 7 French to failing in grade 8.
My grade 7 teacher, Mrs. Walker, brought the language to life. We followed her French instructions and point out all sorts of things in the classroom.
I liked her, and I liked her class as it was engaging.
Grade 8 was a new teacher. Her class was stationary, dry, dull and analytical.
I hated it.
What a difference a teacher and a method can make.
What a difference when you actually use the language.
It seems so obvious when I type it. Yet so many classes never have you speaking.
The Grandparents Day series uses the speak-to-learn system.
Take a listen to the Spanish at the start of the video.
It’s a preview of the Spanish in the lesson that has you speaking and understanding in 11 minutes and 31 seconds.
