I received this question:
You are a language guy. My 5th grade son LOVES Visual Latin, and I can see that he has an aptitude for language learning. However, he is a very visual-spatial learner (like, he had an educational profile done b/c he was struggling so much in other subjects, and it revealed that he is highly visual and not great “just listening”), and learning other languages has proven difficult — I think — because they are not presented quite so visually as Visual Latin.
Question: Is there a modern language curriculum out there that is heavily visual? He’s been studying Spanish with Classical Academy Press products (Song School Spanish and Spanish for Children A).
Here is my reply:
I apologize for the delay. I was out of the country for several months and am now crawling out from underneath a mountain of emails. Finally catching up this afternoon…
Unfortunately, most of what I use is audio based.
However, I will say that I really like DuoLingo. It is free, and it is visually based. My daughter started using it to learn French when she was fourteen. A few months ago, in France, she translated for us and even rented a car for us. She is sixteen. D
DuoLingo is powerful. Best of all… it’s free! I would start there.
