Dígame en español is revolutionizing the way home-schoolers gain their Spanish foreign language credits. With the introduction of web conferencing into the program, learning is enhanced as never before when students practice with a Spanish-speaking moderator and other students in a classroom setting.
 
Textbooks, workbooks, online games and Teacher Presentation DVDs promote learning at any time, any place and any pace. A one–on-one teaching format is constantly being reinforced with many hands–on learning experiences.  Before very long you are speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish!
 
Dígame en español is the vision of Peggy Mayhall-Brown. After 34 years as a Spanish teacher and guidance counselor, she recognized the void that home-school students and their parents face in obtaining their required Carnegie Units in foreign language for high school graduation. She holds a BA from the University of South Alabama and a MS in Psychology from the University of Central Arkansas.


With the realization that interaction is integral to learning any foreign language, Ms. Mayhall-Brown developed Dígame en español to succeed where other programs fail with only static learning.
 
Dígame en español follows the National ACTFL Foreign Language standards and objectives required for Spanish I and Spanish II high school courses; a licensed, certified Spanish instructor teaches the program through Teacher Presentation DVD and scripted lessons.
 
 
The web conference is a virtual class of 15 students and one teacher offered twice weekly.  Each thirty-five minute session practices the lessons for that particular week and incorporates concepts and vocabulary from previous lessons. Students easily develop their Spanish listening, speaking, and writing skills. The web conferences require a computer video camera and a microphone to listen, view, and interact as a class. The web conferencing jumpstarts students’ confidence and ability to communicate as they become fluent in Spanish.
 
In addition to the web conferencing, Dígame en español incorporates lesson plans complete with objectives, Teacher Presentation DVDs, and online quizzes, games and homework. Cultural studies in every unit complement and enhance the course.
