JumpStart Spanish

Printer Friendly Version

Publisher: Knowledge Adventure

List Price: $25.00

Ages: 6-8 Years

Reviewed By: Melba Ortiz Villarreal

JumpStart Spanish features Spanish vocabulary development through animation in order to keep 3-6 year olds interested. Children visit a clubhouse and click on various objects related to a basic subject such as colors, numbers, etc. Through fun games and activities they will hear a word or phrase in Spanish and then in English. This is a good supplementary curriculum that will build Spanish vocabulary though it does not go beyond basic word repetition. It is easy to install and filled with fun. The animation and songs are excellent. I would actually recommend this program for all ages wishing to acquire a basic beginning Spanish vocabulary.

The major drawbacks in this curriculum are that the words are pronounced rapidly in Spanish first, then English, and since the games are fun, an adult has to be nearby to ensure oral repetition. The basic skills, however, are taught in an appealing way and the program keeps track of a child's progress so that parents can be part of the evaluation process.
