My thoughts:

My daughters LOVED Speekee.  They asked for it, especially my 5 year old.  I would hear her sing the songs when she played.  Some evenings she would watch 3 of the Speekee TV videos at one time.  She also incorporated Spanish words into her conversations throughout the day, especially “please”, “thank you”, “where are we going today?”, and the color words.

I have to admit when I first received this product to review…. I sighed ugh.  But it is an engaging, interactive, fun, and hands free program to add to your homeschool.

My favorite part of the program is that I do not have to plan lessons. I just turn on a Speekee TV lesson, read, sing and talk along with the children on the video, and pause the video at any time to speak Spanish with my girls. Also for fun and to review our new words from the lesson, the girls and I completed the lesson activity sheets. 

My daughters’ least favorite part of the lessons were the ‘sock’ puppets.  They were kind of creepy to them and their voices were difficult to understand.  They enjoyed the children and the ‘Speekee’ puppet.

This program allowed me to see that I CAN incorporate a foreign language in our homeschool.  I just had to have the right program!

  1. My girls loved the songs, they sing them all the time.

  2. I'm glad you guys liked it! My kids enjoyed the videos but didn't seem to retain much... I worked with them some and we did some of the worksheets, but maybe not enough... (?)
    It's been a while since we've "talked" so thought I would leave a little comment letting you know I'm still following you ;)

  3. Hi Monica, This is a great review. I am always delighted, of course, to hear that children are loving Spekee (-; ¡Adiós! Jim (the one in Speekee)

  4. My kids did not get into Speekee at all. I even won a month free. Wish they loved it.
