That is wonderful that your husband is letting you homeschool!
For structure, I would definitely go with OLVS, as Kolbe is more parent-led, even though they will give you help whenever you want it.
OLVS, is solidly Catholic and uses the tried-and-true texts of the 50's. And even though I personally don't like all their books, it will take a huge load off of you to have that structure, and your husband won't see you floundering around not knowing what to do next.
How are you going to go about learning French? Is there a class that you will take? Or are you going to do Power-Glide or something?
Thanks for the help ladies! How am I going to learn French? There again, I think I'm going to need some structure! I've have a very good learn on your own book/tape set that I've had for, ummm, three + years, and haven't used it much.
I think I'll have to go the total immersion route along with structured classes. I do know quite a lot of French already just by being around the language here so much, I can usually make out what someone is talking about in a conversation if I listen closely. Reading it I do okay, can usually figure it out. It's so hard (boo hoo hoo), that I've been lazy and stick with the easier English. Have you ever heard a Quebecer talk?
They talk very very fast, and they don't talk "proper" French as those in say Paris would, lots of slang and lazy way of pronouncing French. But hubby wants me to learn "proper" French. I'm determined to homeschool Dominic, so I've got to buckle down and get busy! Besides, I have to prove hubby wrong that I can do this!
I was leaning more towards OLVS because of the "extra" help they provide. It's good to know that they are traditional!
