Rosetta Stone or Power Glide?

Rosetta Stone or Power Glide?
This post contains affiliate links. If you click through and buy I may make a few pennies, but not enough for a latte. Rosetta Stone or Power Glide?

The three I often recommend are Tell Me More, Power Glide, and Rosetta Stone....

Some Foreign Language Strategies

Some Foreign Language Strategies
We used Power Glide and loved it.  Rosetta Stone is often available through the library system (i.e., free.)  Foreign languages are available at co-ops.  Some people wait until Running Start or dual enrollment in community college, and take foreign language there.  It only takes 2 college quarters or semesters to meet the requirements for foreign language if you do it that way.What are some of your favorite foreign language strategies?

Learn a Little Latin?

Learn a Little Latin?
True Confession:  I taught Latin for three years and never really learned it.  Now that it has been a couple of years since I've looked at it, Latin is once again a "dead language" to me!  I was able to teach it because I followed the easy instructions in the book.  I didn't know Latin in advance at all (just Latin roots, from my nursing background.)  You don't have to know a foreign language to teach...

    Scholarships come in waves. They don't all come at once and they don't all come when you receive college admission. And, unfortunately, they don't all come by the time you have to decide on your college, either. To say the least, they certainly don't come when it's convenient, that's for sure.
