Middlebury Interactive Languages French Review

 Middlebury Interactive Languages Review

Hi Neighbors!

Do any of your children want to learn a foreign language you are not familiar with?  Do you feel comfortable teaching a foreign language class?  If not you need to read this review of Middlebury Interactive Languages.  We recently were able to review their High School French I, which is an interactive, online class.  By the way, I learned on their website that French is the second most taught language after English.  Amazing!

My daughter, who is 14 going on 15, has a desire to one day visit Paris.  She has been reading quite a bit about Paris and decided she wanted to learn French.  I encouraged her to learn, but since I only took French for the required quarter and then went on to take Spanish, I did not feel confident in teaching her French.   So, when we were offered this course for review I was really excited.  This is an online course where your child can learn at their own pace.  The class is good for one year, but it should not take that long to complete the course.  There are interactive lessons that will not only help your child learn French, but will help them pronounce words properly, learn about the culture and learn more than just words as they are immersed in French.  This was perfect for us as I was not sure about teaching a language I did not know and M found it quite easy to proceed on her own.

Middlebury uses an immersive type experience rather than a textbook type learning.  During the course your child will both read, write, listen and speak French.  Middlebury offers French, Spanish, Chinese and German.  The courses are available for elementary through high school.  Much of the grading is done right on the computer, but there are some assignments, such as writing assignments that you will have to go over.

M loved being able to control what she was learning and when she worked on her class.  She wandered around the house spouting French words and phrases.  She enjoyed hearing the native French speakers who are in the videos, as this gave her the right accent to use, not to mention insights into their culture.  Of course, she enjoys hearing French anyway!  I believe it is good for her to be exposed to their culture through the lessons.  You will probably want to have a microphone and headphones for your computer.  M had to listen to words, record herself saying them and then compare the two.

You can use Middlebury in two different formats.  One is without a teacher ($119 per semester) and the other is with a teacher support ($175 per semester).  Personally I believe most parents would be able to do without the teacher support, but it is available if you feel more comfortable that way.  As far as the price goes, having just one student it is reasonable, but might get a little expensive if you have more than one child at a time taking a foreign language class.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
