Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product My daughter said it wasn't perfect but it was kind of fun. She said at times it was a little much with the work. She loved Mr. Cancino and thought that he did a great job teaching, it was the book work that was at times excessive. However, she did learn a lot and will go on to Spanish 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spanish 1 Online with Books I purchased this course for my daughter who is in grade 12. She has been interested in learning Spanish for future missions use. This was the perfect course for her, exactly what she needed. Senior Cancino explains the language in a way that is understandable and interesting. This course if full of things to learn, very academically sound and challenging. We love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lessons are WAY too long! This seems to be a quality curriculum, but the daily lessons take my beginner Spanish student about 2 hours to complete. As a result, my daughter dreads Spanish. I have told her to just do half the lesson each day, but because of that, the value of the product is not as good as originally thought since there is no way she will complete this curriculum in the one year timeframe. Therefore, if I want her the complete Spanish I course through BJU, I will have to purchase the curriculum another year. I would only recommend this curriculum to the student who genuinely enjoys learning another language. For many, it is a difficult task to learn a language, and this curriculum only makes it more arduous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spanish I Review The teacher is good at his job; however, the textbook is mainly comprised of activity questions and doesn't give a lot of information on what you are supposed to learn. Because of this it relies heavily on videos rather than on the textbook. Other than that, the course is enjoyable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with text books. Middle school Its a hard subject and to start off with a lot of things got the child having headache to keep up with video. Video does not explain how to do work. And work sheets have child skip around having. So we have to carry all books every where we go. Not easy to travel with. I am having to go back and reteach most subject. Spanish it's a lot more difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging teacher! I think Mr. Cancino is fantastic! He is fun and energetic, and his explanations of Spanish grammar are very thorough. I liked this program enough to purchase it a second time for my younger child. However, I do find the online answer keys cumbersome, and I wish I had kept my paper copies from the first time.
