Our Fraser LOVES languages.
He is interested in everything from
Arabic to Hebrew to Chinese.
have helped to satisfy his thirst for
knowledge in this area.
And at only *ten minutes a day*
they are perfect!
Fun and interactive.
Engaging and interesting.
He has tried different programs
(some were strictly computer based) ~
but, he keeps coming back to this system.
This is not a school requirement.
He is doing this *just for fun*.
Not to say that it could not be for school,
just to let you know how enjoyable they can be.
These books are *introductory* in nature ~
The goal being to equip the child
with the ability to converse simply
in the chosen language.
This was his response when I asked what he would
like to try next, and I quote ~
"Anything to do with Bilingual Books...
it's always good!"
Imagine this being said with a great deal of
animation and enthusiasm.
As I previously mentioned,
he LOVES languages!
What does the LORD have in store?
My Mama heart wells up with tears
at the thought of where this might lead.
But then, I have to remind myself that
he is only twelve and we do have a few years left
to care for him in our home...up close! :)
The LORD is so gracious with us
and never gives us more than we can bear.
HE will lead and guide and give
the grace for whatever it is HE
calls our children to do.
What a blessing to rest in that!
In the meantime,
we are encouraging this love
for learning these languages by giving
him the tools to explore them all!
But, not all at once...
maybe just one or two at a time. :)
May the LORD bless you
all as you seek to raise up your
children for HIS glory.
And may HE give us each the grace to
allow them to flourish in HIS World!
