I teach Spanish for grades K- 8. K-4 only once a week, 5th-8th twice a week. Do you think TCI would work for K-4 once a week or twice a week for upper grades? Any advice would be appreciated.
DEFINITELY! Comprehension based teaching is the most effective way to teach a language, no matter what age or what teaching context! There is an awesome Elementary TCI group on facebook that you can join for support!
