My Review:
There are two things that I find the most daunting about homeschool.  The first is math, I plain out suck at it and the second is foreign languages.  Well I now have that area covered with books by Carolyn Woods.  Lightening Fast Spanish for Kids and Families is amazing!  It is the easiest concept that I never thought of and it's all laid out in this fab book! 
I have to admit that my kids weren't nearly excited to learn a new language and we have actually been working on spanish with workbooks and audio tapes, but it is always the same things, either too boring or too complicated.  Although we have mastered counting 1-10, this book is gonna help this family learn in an easy way that can actually be used everyday! 
Although I took 2 years of Spanish in high school myself, it's been awhile and I sadly did not retain all of my knowledge so I am in essence relearning with my kids and it's great!  Using this book you will find conversations that can be used in everyday situations.  This isn't the kind of book that you sit and read and book mark the page you left off on, unless you really want to, but you can pick this up and choose a conversation or activity to take you through a day or even a week.  If you really think about it, isn't that how your kids learned English?  By being spoken to and having words repeated until they are in their memory.  Using a language is the only way to learn it, and making it fun keeps it interesting.  I can do that with this book and I now feel more confident that I can teach foreign languages to my kids and myself! 
You can also find Lightening-Fast for other languages as well, including:  Chinese, Japanese, Italian, German and French.  GO HERE to Carolyn Wood's Amazon page and you can check 'em out!
