Friday drives to the middle school are Cash Cab Friday, but Monday through Thursday mornings have become Spanish lessons! We (me, son, daughter, and the neighbor kid) are learning to speak Español using the Pimsleur method which involves talking back to cued questions. So far so good. The neighbor kid already took some Spanish, but my two blondini are pretty clueless. Their middle school is 57% Hispanic and I figure that being bilingual will be a useful tool in the future. Their electives are already filled with Art and Shop. Hell, it might even help me if I find myself out of a job.
[Added: special shout out to Freeman Hunt for first telling me about the Pimsleur methods and kids]
