    Default I'm from Belgium living in canada

    Hello

    I'm a Vera and live now 6 years in Canada.
    I homeschool my stepdaughter (11) now 2 years, because i find the schoolsystem here in Canada
    mediocre.
    we used these two years edhelper and other websites. Now she is doing work for grade 4 to grade 5
    Because my english is not so good, i was wondering if in t4l if they explain how to do things.
    like with language, how to do nons, verbs. Because some words i can't pronounce myself,
    also can i skip from grade 5 to grade 6 in the lesson plan.

    I hope you can understand this a bit...........

    Thanks

    Vera

    Hi, Vera!

    Your student will be given easy access to one grade above and one grade below her registered level. So, yes, she can skip from grade to grade.

    Parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs, and so forth are covered in the language arts extensions.

    The program will give verbal instructions to your student much of the time, although there are lessons the students need to read
    on their own.

    Ask as many questions as you need to ask!

    You can get a reader program that will read the parts that you need to read yourself. I know that Microsoft has one and I think there are others out there. With a reader, you just highlight the text that you want read and it will read it to you. I think you can download one for free. But it does have a computer sounding voice that can be annoying.

    To add to what Kathi said, if you have a MAC computer you have a text to speech program built in. All you have to do is set it up on your computer with the short cut. If you need me to walk you though how to do this on a MAC I can. Just let me know.

    You can also use Babelfish Free Online Translation Language Translator to translate from any language to any language. Check it out it is free.

    Here's information about Natural Reader, which is probably what Kathi was talking about.
