Speekee® Accelerate Review: Weeks 33 – 36

Speekee® Accelerate Review: Weeks 27 – 32

Weeks 27 & 28

Audio files have now been added to the entire programme which is great as it gives additional listening practice to each video.

Speekee® Accelerate Review: Weeks 7-10

Review – Speekee® Accelerate: Spanish for kids

I am reviewing the Speekee® Accelerate Programme that was launched in November 2015.

Speekee is an Online Spanish resource designed for children that are Home Educated.  I subscribed to the Fastrack program designed for 4-7 year olds earlier this year and found it to be very useful in supporting our language learning journey at home.  The Accelerate programme is designed for students age 8+.
