Overview | Our Spanish Video Series

Learn Spanish like you learned your first language—
through context and visual cues
—and in fun life-like situations!
 

Our Spanish video series is comprised of 8 levels and is offered on DVD or online. The series features children speaking Spanish in a typical day in their life, with much humor and fun. Level 1 starts at breakfast and the series proceeds and Level 8 ends at bedtime. Your students will learn common and useful vocabulary related to their day-to-day lives.

Flight theme
We use an ongoing flight theme in which students are on a journey to several Spanish-speaking countries. Each video is the "in-flight entertainment" shown on the plane to a specific country. Culture and geography units for these countries accompany the videos in the print and online workbooks.

A progressive program
Where the vocabulary and story line build on each other. You will know when your students are ready to progress to the next level in the story when they can call out 80-90% of the Spanish in our Rapid Review Challenge, which is the last video on each DVD.

In just a few lessons, many parents have found themselves surprised as students start speaking Spanish around the house.

Each DVD includes:

  • Three or four short video lessons including a short review (about 5 minutes)
  • Full video story (about 15 minutes)
  • Rapid Review Challenge for speaking practice (2-3 minutes)

Each Level Includes:

  • Geography of one Spanish-speaking country
  • Supplemental materials expand upon the geography to include a full, fun and light culture and geography unit
  • A complete vocabulary list with translation accompanies each DVD1

*For a faster pace, start with the video lesson immediately preceding the Rapid Review Challenge video on each level.

Notes:

1) Based on our teaching philosophy of immersion, the translations are provided for parents and teachers only and we suggest the translations are not shared with students.
2) Each DVD corresponds with our 8 Level video series.
3) Instructions as to how to use each DVD and pace your students is located inside the front cover, for your convenience.
