Foreign Language Credit Value

>>>Angela asks: "We purchased Rosetta Stone Spanish 1 and didn't do so well last year.  We will 'go at it' with more gusto this year, but my question is, this course is supposed to be a 2 year course although it is only Spanish 1.  Do you have any knowledge of the credit value?"<<<

Angela, I know that a two year course at high school level would be two full high school credits.  I also know that the catalog may say "Spanish 1" and really mean college level Spanish 1.  If it is college level, it may be two full high school credits.  But I haven't actually researched the credit value of Rosetta Stone.

If Rosetta Stone isn't working, it may not match your student's learning style.  Why not look at Tell Me More and Power-Glide, and see if either of those might match your student better?  Here is my blog post that links them side by side.  Have your kids help you, and click on each sample one at a time. These can also  be found from most homeschool resources, including Sonlight CurriculumRockSolid Discount Homeschool Books, and

Rosetta stone is very methodical, and for computer-lovers, but there are many other ways to learn foreign languages besides looking at a split-screen computer all day.  Whatever curriculum you choose, though, the key is to do foreign language for AT LEAST 15 minutes every day.  That way you won't have to keep re-learning day after day, but can build on your knowledge from the previous day. That 15 minute thing is really key!

Blessings, Lee
