Testimonials from Homeschool Family:
“Middlebury Interactive Languages is a true foreign language arts learning program. Your child will learn the language, get to know the country and have a fun time learning. This method of teaching was easy to memorize and really incorporate the learning in to a functional ready to use skill.”—Heather, Homeschool Mom
“The learning proceeds with a combination of approaches that seems to really work well. There are conversations to figure out, matching games, opportunities to select the appropriate word fill-in-the-blank style, opportunities to type in words, opportunities to record yourself speaking, direct teaching of grammar (or other) concepts, and each unit has a culture focus as well.”—Debra, Homeschool Mom
“Our three elementary-aged sons are learning Chinese through Middlebury Interactive’s Chinese language course and are loving it. They’re excited everyday to use the course and enjoy the self-paced nature of the activities. They love the stories, myths, legends, as well as the games and songs that teach them not only the Chinese language but also about the culture of China.”—Paul, Homeschool Dad, Illinois
