    We have loved using the Language Lessons series and are so excited that it is being extended through middle and high school levels! The lessons are short but to the point, directed to the student so they can work mainly independently, and designed to not only teach them good language and communication skills, but to also develop their own walk with God and be equipped as a faithful ambassador for Christ through good etiquette, body language, etc. I love this in the introduction: Communication lessons speak to the mind and heart of the student, challenging them to examine their writing, speech, and countenance in light of Gods Word. Such a good point that our countenance is also a form of communication! In this spirit, the weekly courtesy emphasis equips students to show genuine love to others in the spirit of 1 Corinthians 13:5, Love does not act unbecomingly.

    While students will study grammar rules and be coached through various writing styles and assignments, this course goes heart deep as it also compels students to evaluate their lives from a Biblical worldview. For example, after analyzing a paragraph about John and Abigail Adams, students are given the following assignment: If someone were to write a paragraph about you, what would you want them to say. Write a quote to describe yourself.

    Repeated overview of the whole Bible, gaining more depth with each successive volume, is one more feature I appreciate about the Language Lessons series. In level 7, students will work through Gods Story (or read the accounts in their own Bible) and gain practice summarizing and identifying the main message of the Biblical account. I know that while the language and writing skills they learn will equip them to be successful in their communication, an understanding of the Bible will give them a solid foundation to continue to build upon as they grow in their walk with God.

    In summary, I am thankful to have these books that will help us equip our children for effective communication that glorifies God!

    Note - It feels awkward to post a language course review with improper punctuation, but CBDs review module does not allow apostrophes, question marks, or semicolons.

    Long awaited and much anticipated ... it is finally here! I am so thrilled that Kristen, MB and the team have continued the Language Lessons series! This is a traditional 36 week curriculum, 5 days per week. As with every MB curriculum, there is a daily schedule of exercises, but it is pretty self explanatory and predictable once you get going. Your student will start their week with a special feature, rotating between book passages and picture, hymn, scripture and poem studies, which will engage your student as well as spelling and vocabulary words and scripture memory. Day two is devoted to grammar and punctuation, day three is communication, day for is worldview and day five is a review of the week. Each part of the curriculum is designed to take the student deeper into what they have already learned, building on their knowledge, and help them strengthen their faith. At the back of the book, there are bonus activities, templates, study sheets, spelling lists, and more. With LLFLE 7, you can choose to purchase Gods Story for worldview days or simply use your preferred Bible with the referenced passages. Gods Story is a gorgeous book and well worth purchasing. The pictures are minimal, the stories from prior volumes nonexistent which shows they have thought through what would appeal to the targeted age group (cue the mom tears). I think one of my favorite parts is actually the review days. I think it helps bring everything together each week.
