What People are saying
"I have so many wonderful things to say about the powerspeaK¹² program that I can’t pick just a few... This is not a 'quick fix' to learn German. It does take time and effort. But the best thing about this program is, it's fun. It's not intimidating or frustrating. Being a home-school mom, I've learned that the best curriculums are the ones that are enjoyed. They need to be challenging, not frustrating. That's what I've found with powerspeaK¹²... When we're on 'summer break' and the kids ask to do German, I've definitely found something they enjoy."
