First of all, I should mention that English is not our kids' native language. We are Romanians and we live in Romania but we try talking in English to our kids. I would like to find a curriculum that can help my 6 years old to read and write in English but there are so many and I have no idea which are the best and also accredited. We need a mixed curriculum as my DD is advanced in science and good at Maths but of course, she needs a begginer level for English.
Please give me some advice as HS in Romania is very rare and actually "illegal".
well, you are asking the WRONG question (trust me I know what I am talking about here - here I sit next to a big stack of books! ) -
your question should be - HOW do I get stuff!!! oh, it's out there--- getting it to you is the question(S)!
I know this is really not the correct spot for this but I really hope someone has an good answer to my question!
Finding is one issue, getting it to Romania is what I have found to be the hard problem - there are things on Ebay & Amazon but few will ship to Romania and the COST - ah! it's not bad to buy things and many items can be found nearly new
Can someone help with that? I have looked into DSL (no center in my area, I don't even have a UPS store- just drops) UPS also hasn't been great as far as the web site goes - you get so far and it tells you to call and that has not worked will with Christmas and the wait time…….and USPS isn't helping me! My local USPS knows how to ship Global Priority and that's it! but I have gone on line and see it can be sent other ways - the problem is my local USPS isn't helpful when it comes to understanding the VAT and other charges - what is the best way to ship and what makes it the easiest if you send a mix package (be it media mail (books, papers) and ALSO a gift in the same package) I have also looked into bulk shipping to Romania (I see there is a place in Florida) but I am in the North East of the US and I am also not planning to ship 50+lbs! either - so if anyone knows how to do ----PLEASE help here!
IMO - books, book and more books!! are what is needed but the best way to ship these weighty items is what needs to be figured out!
What if you bought a kindle? My kids love reading on ours. You can get tons of great reading material for free, and once you paid the crazy shipping once to get it to you, everything else is downloadable.
I don't know about accredited, but maybe there is an online English learning program? Or, perhaps you can find something to print off. I hear easypeasyhomeschool.com has a super simple, all online, and free curriculum. It is for native English speakers, but learning in English would surely be a good start?
