We've found that 7th or 8th grade is a better starting point for children that aren't eager to learn another language. CHC's language programs have worked differently for each of our children. Some of them needed a fuller program, and for others, Tell Me More was plenty. Whether CHC's programs work for all of our children or not, we appreciate the time and effort put into researching and selecting thorough foreign language programs. Hope this helps and God bless!
