The flipped classroom model is turning the education world on its head. (See what we did there?) Essentially, students listen to traditional lectures not in class, but in videos that they watch independently. In doing so, teachers can free up class time for more interactive learning activities.  So, why wouldn’t every teacher do so?

 

Learning #Spanish #online the flipped way: study the interactive learning materials individually, and then sign up for the one-on-one online session with your Spanish native teacher in Spain for guidance and evaluation. Available for children (+9), teenagers and adults.

As we all know from financial investing, if we put our money into an account that has an interest rate of zero, then we are basically going to remain in a holding pattern.  No loss (if we don’t count inflation) but also no growth!  Not good.

To relate this with language learning: If we just repeat the same words over and over again in the same sentences and in the same contexts for weeks at a time, then our interest rate is going to remain stagnant.  Using the words we have learned in new sentences, with new people, in different settings is key.  Listening to audio programs, watching videos and taking notes, this will keep the ball rolling.

Getting excited about the culture is also key: making recipes from the culture, learning about the countries where the language is spoken, visiting cultural events in your community are all part of the process.

Putting all of this together is how our language will expand each day and each week.  It is how we ensure that our interest rate remains high.

I'm in my office tapping away on my computer, and can hear sounds coming from the other side of the door: clinks from my husband washing dinner dishes, and chirps from my son Leo's iPad as he happily entertains himself.

 

"Happily entertains himself" is not a phrase I use casually. While Leo is absolutely one of the happiest kids you'll ever meet, he is also autistic, and does best with 24/7 supervision and support. So for him to independently busy himself with that iPad is ... kind of a big deal. iPads are kind of a big deal for many kids with special needs.

Blogging is very suitable for homeschool moms because it offers great flexibility, it can be born out of a passion for a particular niche and many homeschool moms just enjoy writing. Though mommy blogging can turn out to be a viable source of discretionary  income (or more), it takes more than throwing up a blog and posting some content every once in a while.  It takes motivation and perseverance to grow your blog and be successful. It also takes a certain level of quality content which may mean you need a willingness on your part to seek self-improvement and maybe even seek outside advice.

Children are also willing to practice reading before they record which helps improve fluency.
