Speekee TV


Hi Neighbors!

Do you have a child interested in learning Spanish?  My daughter was a little old for this at 11, but she still really enjoyed working with Speekee TV.  It is amazing how much she picked up!  Not to mention that before she started wearing headphones other family members were repeating the songs she was practicing on. like, "Hablo espanol".   Speekee TV is helping my daughter.  We have Hispanic friends that she is practicing on.  And she just randomly walks up to me and says, "Buenas Dias!  Como esta?"

Speekee will definitely hold a child's attention.  With children and puppets, speaking and singing, as well as playing, my daughter did not loose interest.  And with 6 children I have seen where singing really helped my children to retain what they are learning.  They have learned many Bible verses this way!


When you sign up for Speekee TV you can also receive FastTrack.  Here is a little about FastTrack:
Speekee FastTrack is a 40 week plan that maximises every child's Spanish learning. Every week we've suggested 4 activities for you, with corresponding video clips, worksheets and other downloads. Taking just a few minutes, each activity accelerates understanding and use of Spanish.

You can do all the activities or pick and choose.  Included are worksheets and flash cards you can print off.  We did have to keep reminding my daughter not to sing too loud, so she would not disturb the others working on their school!


Speekee is recommended for ages 2-10.  I am sure even some older children could learn from listening to the programs.  You can try Speekee for two weeks for free, and then it is $7.50 per month, or you can pay $60 for a year.

Here is what you receive:

  • 10 EPISODES OF SPANISH
  • OVER 150 MINUTES OF PURE SPANISH LEARNING
  • LEARN SPANISH FROM REAL SPANISH CHILDREN IN REAL SPANISH LOCATIONS
  • FEATURES SONGS, ANIMATION AND PUPPETS
  • OPTIONAL SUBTITLES IN SPANISH AND ENGLISH
  • FREE ACTIVITY SHEET DOWNLOADS
  • GREAT FUN AND EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE
  • CREATED BY SPECIALIST LANGUAGE TEACHERS
  • FREE OPTIONAL CURRICULUM
  • SONGS YOU CAN'T STOP SINGING

Now, what do I personally like about Speekee?  I love that not only is it educational, but it is fun.  I also like that she is hearing the proper pronunciation.  All too often when learning from a book, you can not get the right sound.  One of my sons had some trouble with this, but I had taken Spanish myself and was able to help.

Do I recommend Speekee?  You betcha!  Be sure and stop by the other Crew Member sites by clicking the banner below to see what they have to say about Speekee!
