We've just returned from a tour at a local exemplary dual-language school that we considered applying for. It was unsatisfactory, and has affirmed our desire to homeschool/unschool. That said, we're very much of the mind that proficiency in another language will greatly benefit our children in many ways (especially with a huge hispanic population in our area).
Have any of you had positive experiences with any foreign-language programs? I almost bought the Little Pim series, but upon previewing (thank you, YouTube!), realized it wasn't at all engaging or interesting to my child. It was little more than looking at a book, which we can do without TV and expensive DVD purchases.
I do have a set of "Coffee Break French" CDs that were gifted to me. They aren't for children, but I may start listening on longer car rides, or during craft/art time. What I heard seemed pretty decent and accessible.
I'd love to hear about your experiences and suggestions!
