A Passport to Languages Series: English & Spanish - Level 1

"Highly Recommended. This live-action series is divided into three levels. The first two levels take viewers to a classroom with a small group of children, a friendly custodian, a large puppet, and an energetic female teacher; the third level offers real-life situations. The entire series is lighthearted and has the feel of a PBS program." -School Library Journal
"Highly Recommended. This series, in English and Spanish, allows viewers of both languages to learn the other language. By repeating each program (with a different cast), viewers can learn simple phrases or words in Spanish or English. This series would be a nice addition to an existing language program. ELL and Spanish-language classes would both benefit by incorporating this series into their curriculum. Multi-ethnic actors are used." -NAMTC Review
