Hi, my daughter is switching to a new middle school for seventh grade and will be with kids who have studied Spanish since K.  She had some French from K-5 but not Spanish, and I want to help her catch up.  Do any of you have recommendations for a Spanish curriculum that she and I could do at home over the summer?

If you can afford it, Rosetta Stone is quite good.

Mango Languages might be a good place to start.  You can get it free through most public libraries.  It's more conversational than grammar-focused, but it would help her get caught up.

I think conversational learning is more important, but in schooling I think they do put a lot of importance on conjugation, sentence structure, aspects like that.  Here's a link to a blog post about Spanish curriculum options, I think you might want to look into:

But definitely see if any others on this forum have input and research all the options!
