Our Review:
Both of my girls (Allison age 7, and Lydia age 4) love playing the Early Learning Spanish games online.  Lydia is just learning how to use the computer and needs a bit of help with the mouse, but absolutely loves the game.  She is not very good at first, but as she has played a few times now she is getting better at answering the questions correctly.
Allison has learned quite quickly that the correct answers are "highlighted" and has figured out how to always get the correct answer.  Even with her little "cheat" she has still learned most of the colors correctly in Spanish through the use of this online game site.
Personally I think it is easy to use, easy to understand HOW to play, and the games in Spanish make the children have to pay attention to what is being said in order to find the correct answer.  This website is geared for ages 4 - 7 but I can see it for ages 3 to 7.  My 10 year old son played it as well, although he liked it, he said it was way too easy and need to be made harder for the older kids (no highlights to help them cheat).  I love watching and playing along as both girls enjoy learning a new language through educational and FUN games.  I like the website and see the benefits to my children, and right now the price has been cut in half and that makes it even better for all parents, home-school parents, and teachers too!

  1. I tried the family matching game with my son sitting next to me. He thought it was fun and I like how if you get a wrong answer you can still keep on going.
