My dd (grade 6) has been using Rosetta Stone for Spanish this year. At first, this method seemed great. She was picking it up easily. However, once we got to January, her progress slowed significantly and her frustration level grew. I don't speak Spanish, but could help her a little. Mostly she gets really confused with the different conjugations of verbs. I showed her a typical conjugation chart (from my French learning days) and she said, "why can't they just show me that!" Since then, she has been requesting a more "traditional" approach. I still want her to be able to hear the language a lot too. Is there a program that blends the traditional and immersion methods? She has always been interested in Spanish and has been listening to it since preschool through cds of songs, muzzy, etc. She took an immersion based camp which she loved (I thought immersion would be great for her). But, she is more of a sequential learner. She doesn't want to give up Spanish, but she needs either a class (where a teacher can answer questions) or a different program to use at home. She is all but refusing to use Rosetta stone. We have also used BBC in the past.
