College level review in The FLTMAG
From Friendswood High School, TX:
Thanks to Edunovela.com, the change from the traditional classroom setting to distance learning was seamless as students were completely familiar with the programming and assessments with no loss in momentum. Additionally, my students have always struggled with the vocabulary section of the National Spanish Exam as there are so many terms, it is impossible to cover them all. This year I saw a significant increase in the raw scores for that section of the exam which can only be attributed to Edunovela!
From Archbishop Mitty, California:
I want to let you and your team know that we are thrilled with Silvana for our level 1 students this year. Of course they've loved the content, but we saw other benefits that we did not anticipate. We saw a dramatic change of attitude toward new, unknown material not pertaining to Silvana. Where previous students would point outraged to one not-previously-taught word in a reading passage, our students this year take it in stride. They are so much better at guessing what new words mean using all kinds of different strategies. They are comfortable with me using a lot more Spanish while teaching. The love our weekly, "Día de Español" where English is prohibited for them and for me. Silvana magically lowered their monitor and they feel comfortable and confident in Spanish- listening, reading, and speaking. THANK YOU! I know you put massive amounts of energy and your life's moments into this project. It had a huge payoff for us and our students.
From Wood River Rural Schools, Nebraska:
You have done a fabulous job with Silvana Sin Lana. I am so happy to have something that provides authentic language and realistic situations for students. In 20 minutes of screen time, they are individually exposed to more language and culture than a regular classroom lesson can provide in a 50 minute session. My students are incredibly engaged. They enjoy watching it and so do I. It does not feel like classwork. Thanks so much for what you have done to create this. I sincerely appreciate that the cost was reasonable enough, it was worth the risk to try it out. Now that I have used it, my students and I agree that it is worth the cost per student. I have told other Spanish Teachers about it and I hope they will use it next year.
Thank you so much for your prompt response to my question. You offer great support.
From Lower Cape May Regional High School, NJ:
We love your program so much that our AP Spanish teacher wants to add Gran Hotel right now for her AP class....We are so excited that next year you will have more programs for other levels! We want them all!
From Coe Brown Northwood Academy, NH:
I’d just like to say that the kids really liked El tiempo and they learned a lot of history and culture about a part of the Spanish-speaking world that might not normally have been covered in class. Since my two classes were honors, I also incorporated a reader with the series which paired quite nicely. Needless to say, now they know a lot about the Spanish Civil War AND the extra knowledge of World War II was a nice compliment to their history course. Plus, their listening skills improved tremendously and the episodes with all the activities generated A LOT of class discussion.
From Turner High School, Kansas City, KS:
We have REALLY loved the material and the series (Gran Hotel).
From Horace Greeley High School, Chappaqua, NY:
Thank you so much for your trouble shooting with me. Made the process so easy.
Thank you again for your prompt answers and informative answers!! Nice!!
From MAHS, Meyersdale, Pennsylvania:
I am thrilled (and so are my students) with EduNovela.com...your product is superior to any that I have seen and considered purchasing. My high school students are excited for class each day when they get to watch a ”telenovela!’ They seem to pick up new vocabulary words almost instantaneously by seeing a list in Pre-lectura, reading a brief summary and listening to/watching the 3 minute segments (seeing the subtitles in Spanish) and answering follow up comprehension questions: ALL included in the program. The cost is completely reasonable and affordable! I am so glad I tried this! I have also noticed that my students' pronunciation is improving after only two weeks! WOW! Thank you so much!!!!! We absolutely love this program!
From Duchesne High School, St. Charles, Missouri:
My students are loving Gran Hotel. It's really been a fun semester.
From Rockwood School District, Eureka, Missouri:
World Language and ESOL Content Facilitator:
So far the reports have been outstanding. The students love the program and are learning a lot.
From Lakeville South High School, Minnesota:
-I appreciated that I could change the speed, press pause, etc. at my own pace without slowing other students down. (Student)
-I was surprised that I could still do well on the quiz when my brain thought I was only catching a small percentage of the words. (Student)
-I was so glad there were subtitles in Spanish so I could get the reading along with the listening. (Student)
-I love that students can't even take the quiz until they've watched all the segments so there is accountability. (Teacher)
-I like that the quizzes are at the end of each episode rather than making us remember for multiple episodes. (Student)
-I used the character reference list on the left column to double check and make sure I knew who was who. (Student)
-I love how modern (2017) Silvana Sin Lana is. From the cars to the technology, it feels very now. (Student)
-I was really glad to see how much I could understand from the visual and acting cues even thought I didn't understand all of the words. (Student)
Thank you so much for making this program possible! We've been waiting for a good replacement for Destinos for... oh, about 30 years.
Thank you, teachers, directors, and students!
