My daughter (age 7) goes to a dual language school (2-way immersion). Unfortunately, remote learning during the pandemic affected the amount of time she was immersed in Spanish. By the time she returned for in-person classes, I noticed that she understood way more Spanish than she was able to speak. I’m sure that over time she would have caught up, but the discrepancy between what she understood and what she could speak negatively impacted her confidence, such that she developed a preference for English. She had taken a few PandaTree classes when she was 4 and she absolutely loved it, so I signed her up for a subscription package. She recently re-started PandaTree with two 50-minute classes per week. While I had initially considered the 25-minute classes, she has ADHD, and for some reason she’s obsessed with PandaTree the way some kids are obsessed with video games. If I could afford to subscribe her for 5 days a week, I would. We are three weeks in, and from the first class, I knew this was the right choice. I had never heard her speaking Spanish and I was shocked at how proficient she was. My suspicions about her receptive proficiency vs. her spoken proficiency were confirmed when I heard inconsistent errors in verb conjugation and knowing whether a word is masculine or feminine. Direct instruction in these areas has made a HUGE difference in her confidence - and it makes up for a gap that an immersion program doesn’t fulfill. I highly recommend PandaTree. For the first time, I really do believe that my daughter will become fluent in Spanish.
