Teachers are saying:

  • "I love doing cognate stuff in class, and this was incredibly fun."
  • "A great way to start the year with Spanish I students! Getting them to see how many words are SO similar in both languages really gives them confidence. This is a great way to get them more familiar with Spanish words they didn't know they knew."
  • "My students enjoyed seeing so many familiar words on the first day of our class. It was fun to see their faces as we talked through them and had fun with pronunciation."
