Fun way to learn Spanish!, 12/01/2008

My daughter is 3 years old and has been taking these classes for 2 years in a row now! She absolutely loves going to class and is learning to speak and understand Spanish through music and play, a... very fun and effective way! She never gets tired of listening to the CD's, and especially loves following along with the books. We have also attended many of her free concerts, which were all great! Did I mention that my Spanish is also improving?

Fantastic curriculum and materials for learning Spanish, 12/01/2008

I can only say good things about Suzy's classes and all the materials that she has created! I am a native Spanish speaker and I took my son (to whom I have always spoken in Spanish) to her classes... when he was 3 and 4 as he was starting to reply to me in English (he also started speaking late for his age). Before I tried the first class I was a little concerned that it wouldn't be possible to learn much if the class was geared to non-native speakers and the Spanish level would be too low for him as he understood a lot of Spanish already from me..... after that first trial class, however, I signed him up for the whole course without hesitation! Her classes are made in such a fun, visual manner that they are non-threatening to any child and I think each child gets something out of the class regardless of their level. We bought all the materials as our son really wanted to have his own ""classes at home"", he loved watching the videos, singing the songs with the picture books in Spanish. ..(I was amazed as I had also tried getting him to listen to traditional Spanish kids songs and watch Spanish cartoons but he still would not reply in Spanish). After a couple of months my son started to speak to me in Spanish!\rI think the class helped him to realize that the Spanish world was not just limited to mom and him and a few Spanish friends, I dont know what made him switch maybe it was the songs, the silly videos, the games or the puppets ... most likely the combination of all of the above and, most importantly, Suzy and her adorable nature. We have since moved to Spain and Daniel who is now 5, still loves singing Suzy's songs, we bought all the albums and even now he is still enjoying them, especially the ""Bomberos"" album and in fact he is now teaching the Bomberos song to his little brother who is 2. He still misses Suzy and keeps asking me to invite her to his new school to sing for his new friends.... Believe me you're blessed to have her there.\r\r

Fun Spanish Class for Kids

Suzy really makes it fun for the kids to learn Spanish. My wife is a foreign language teacher by profession, and she got lots of great ideas from Suzy's class. The only negative thing I can say is a few native speakers take the class, presumably as a preschool for their kids, which is further evidence for the quality of the class. I can't say whether my kids were affected - for all I know, it was a good thing for them - but I found it a little intimidating. Anyway, this class is great, and we kept our kids in it until they started school.

The fun way for your kids to learn spanish

My kids (age 6 and 9) have adored these classes for years. Susy Dorn has such a wonderful talent for fascinating and entertaining kids that they don't even realize they are gaining a valuable skill: Spanish. Highly recommended. Brent.
