News & Updates

Why Study A Foreign Language?

Are there any good reasons to learn another language? Or are you of the mind set that everyone should learn to speak English? In most countries, other than the United States, students are required to learn English and sometimes several other languages. German exchange students often come to America “speaking in tongues” of English, Spanish, French, and German.

Do we Americans have a prejudice to our language or are we simply lazy? Learning another language take effort. Is it worth it?

The value we place on learning a language may correspond to the value we place on people from other lands. Do you have knowledge you would wish to share with them? What about the story of God’s love to all? How important is it to you to be able to share God’s message with someone who speaks a different language?

  • Reason 1-- So we come to the first and most important reason to learn another language—that of being able to share God’s message of love. Putting forth the effort to learn another language tells the people you care about them.

  • Reason 2-- Learning another language is good personal discipline. It requires you to think for the benefit of someone else.

  • Reason 3-- Learning the grammar of another language will help you better grasp the grammar of the English language. Speaking personally, there were things about English grammar I never understood until I studied Spanish.

  • Reason 4-- Language study will enhance your memory and help keep your brain alert.

What language should you learn? What ethnic groups surround you? What language would be of the most value? The answers to those questions will vary according to where you live. But one fact is apparent—the third most spoken language in the world is Spanish. It is a beautiful language. It is a phonetic language. And it is reasonably easy to learn.

Speedy Spanish was created twenty-four ago because of the need for a simple Spanish course for young homeschoolers. It is now being used all over the United States, Canada, and many foreign lands for all ages of children and adults. Speedy Spanish I and Speedy Spanish II are each creditable for a year of conversational Spanish for the high school student who uses it plus the tests and extra practice. Without the add-ons Speedy Spanish is fun and learnable for younger children. For very young children we have the Speedy Spanish Primer and worksheets.

We have added Spanish puzzles as a fun and easy way to get vocabulary words to stick in the brain. Puzzles include cross words, word search, and scrambles.

***********************


SPEEDY SPANISH is designed to teach Spanish in a fast enjoyable way. Just as you first learned to speak English and than studied grammar so this Spanish course is geared to teach speaking first and then later, the serious student may take a high school course where he can learn grammar. This course is meant to be self-teaching and self-correcting when used with the cassettes. There are 30 lessons plus 6 reviews, making a total of 36 lessons to last through a school year, doing one lesson a week. Each lesson introduces 12 (usually) new words. Each lesson is divided into 5 parts—*'s mark the end of each part. Please study each lesson in the following way:

MONDAY: Vocabulary—Look at the words, listen to the words on the tape, say the words with the tape. Study each vocabulary until you know the words well. With these vocabulary words you will learn to speak Spanish. Older students may want to learn to spell the Spanish vocabulary words and may be given a spelling test.

TUESDAY: Practice—Read the practice sentences in English, listen to them on the tape. Read the sentences in Spanish with the tape. Notice the sentence structure—the order in which Spanish words are placed within a sentence. Read the sentences over and over until you can read smoothly.

WEDNESDAY: Match—This section will help you put into practice what you have learned. Read the instructions and draw lines or write the correct letter in the blank. When the work is completed, listen to the tape and correct your work. Repeat the words and sentences along with the tape. This will give you added practice in pronunciation.
The Word Bank is a place to keep your vocabulary cards. You will find the vocabulary cards for each lesson in a white envelope. Before you do anything to them, read the directions that are in your vocabulary card envelope. Follow the directions carefully and then place the vocabulary cards in your Word Bank after you have studied them. When you complete 5 lessons put a rubber band around the cards for the 5 lessons. In this way you can keep the vocabularies grouped together ready for the review.

THURSDAY: Memorize—In this section you will learn Bible verses and songs in Spanish. Listen to the verse and song on tape. Turn the tape back and repeat the verse and sing the song with the tape. Repeat this process until you know the verse and song well. Bible Word Match is made up of words from the verses and songs. This match will help you add some new words to your vocabulary and review some words you have already learned.

FRIDAY: Review—Quiz-nish is a game which will test your memory by matching English words with Spanish words or Spanish words with English words. Use your vocabulary cards to play this game. Race with other students or use a timer and try to beat your previous time in playing Quiz-nish. Use the tape to correct your work. The more often you play this game the better you will learn the vocabulary words.

After you have completed 5 lessons, there will be a review that will help you determine how much you have learned. Carefully study vocabulary cards from all 5 previous lessons and then follow the directions to complete the review. A cassette is available of only the songs from SPEEDY SPAN1SH BOOK I and II.

Extra activities: Do research on Spanish speaking countries. Write reports on the customs, home, food, jobs, and clothing of the Spanish people. Draw maps of Latin countries. These activities will broaden your knowledge of another culture. Obtain a Spanish Bible and spend time reading it. This will increase your religious (Bible) vocabulary that is different from your secular (everyday) vocabulary.
May your study help you realize God loves and cares for ALL people.
