    Another GREAT giveaway! Our kids have been exposed to some Spanish, but I would love to see them become fluent.

  2. Nichole says:

    The kids I nanny have been exposed to very basic spanish and french – basically what you might find in a children’s book. They have also been exposed to sign language, which is their favorite!

    My children haven’t been exposed to another language yet. They are 4 years and 1 month. I’m ready to start schooling my 4 year old though and learning another language would be a great addition.

  13. Molly Hanson says:

    I’ve been trying to decide how and when to begin a foreign language study with my young sons. So, no second language exposure yet.

  17. I have raised my four daughters speaking French and English in the home, but my youngest has been asking if I will teach her Spanish! I’m off to look at the La Clase divertida link now :)

  18. Bronwyn says:

    My son is being raised bilingual in English and German because my husband’s from Austria. He’s also been exposed to some Spanish and a bit of Italian. I would love the opportunity to train him more in Spanish as well.

  20. My boys were born while we were living in Israel, so they have been exposed to Hebrew and Arabic. We are now living in the US, and have started to learn Spanish. I am currently looking for a curriculum to use next year in our homeschool, so this would be fantastic!!

    just subcribed!!

  24. Kimberly says:

    My in laws only speak spanish and we are getting ready to live with them!! My twin 4year olds and I don’t speak spanish so this will be an adventure!

  25. Jessica Brammer says:

    Living overseas our children are exposed to Indonesian and it is very cute when they try to say the words they hear.

  26. We lived in China for several years when our oldest was a baby, so she was learning Chinese as she learned to speak English. When she was 2 she had a small vocabulary of Chinese words, but then we came back to the U.S., and now 5 years later she doesn’t remember much of what she knew. But my husband and I do know some Chinese, and we’ll teach the kids some words from time to time.

  28. Although I don’t speak it fluently, it has been really important to me that my children be exposed to Hebrew. Besides hearing it in Shul on Saturdays, my oldest goes to school where many of the children are native Hebrew speakers, and the teachers use Hebrew everyday. I would love to be able to expose them to another language as they get older.

  30. My boys have not yet been exposed to another language, but I think it is really important for them to learn Spanish.

  31. My kids have not been exposed to foreign language, but would love them to be exposed to Spanish!

  33. My son was born in Nicaragua, and we occasionally use Roseta Stone.

    my kids (4 and 2) have only heard spanish from sesame street … would LOVE to learn spanish as a family! we’ve thought about getting rosetta stone someday, but this giveaway would be a GREAT start!!

  36. My little boy has been exposed to some foreign language (as I am multi-lingual)…but we hope to give him opportunities to become fluent in at least as many languages as myself. Spanish is easier, as we live in Texas and he also has some Peruvian relatives who married into my side of the family. Romanian will be harder for him to get here in the US, but I hope to expose him to that as well. Any other languages he wants to learn will be available to him as well. I feel that it is very important to learn other languages and cultures and not be so insular as people in the US tend to be.

  38. Our girls have been exposed to spanish by me, but we are working towards being more fluent and learning from more than just momma. Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. I spoke some Spanish in college so i point to some things and say the Spanish words and get books from the library that are in Spanish to read to the girls.

  42. Wow!! I am planning on using La Clase Divertida this coming school year but have not purchased yet…I would love to win it and save the money! :) My kids have had some very basic Spanish, and then 1 year of Latin…I am wanting to focus on Spanish a little bit more next year and have been researching options for a few months now. I have just narrowed it down to this program! :)

  44. My father-in-law is fluent in spanish (he’s actually a college spanish teacher) and when he is around, he gives them crash courses in basic spanish. We’ve been working on basic, handy spanish phrases and I try to remember to use them as often as possible and to work in vocabulary when I can. We also count a lot in spanish, german and french. We would love to go a bit further in our quest to learn spanish!

  45. My kids have not yet been exposed to a foreign language. I’ve been going between French (which I already know from 4 years in high school), or learning Spanish along with them and teaching Dad, too.

  46. My kids have not been exposed to a foreign language.

  48. My two girls are half Hispanic and we didn’t start with one of us speaking spanish and the other english. But, we do have english-free dinners where everyone speaks spanish and they pick up a few words here and there. They are eager to learn now!

  49. My in-laws speak French and we’ve been to Paris and french-speaking parts of Africa. I do hope to try the rosetta stone french with my littles…maybe next year (expensive but effective?). Actually, I’d like our whole family to learn. I know a little form high school but think it would be education + bonding to learn a language together.
