Several members of the Homeschool Crew received the foreign language curriculum from Tell Me More. This curriculum is available in the following languages: English, Spanish, French, German (which I received), Italian, Dutch, Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic. Reviewers were given the choice of language. The Tell Me More website boasts that it is "the global leader in language learning software. Whether you are learning a language for personal improvement, before a trip, or to increase job opportunities in many careers, TELL ME MORE® is the perfect language solution."
I was impressed when this curriculum arrived in my mailbox. I didn’t know what to expect and was surprised by such a small box. Tell Me More is a DVD-ROM course, so all that’s included in the box is one DVD, and instruction manual, and a microphone/headset. Impressive to this homeschool mom who is running out of room to store all my much-loved curriculum! That little DVD contains thousands of exercises and up to 10 hours of video.
Some of the things that really impress me about this program are that you can get help from their advisers 24/7 (via an online chat service) and the test feature (at any time during the course, you can take a test to evaluate progress – this is especially helpful for parents of older children who are working more independently). Tell Me More is ideal for homeschooling families, as more than one user account can be set up, allowing for multiple users to be learning at their own pace.
The Crew members will be sharing their thoughts here:
