Talking teaching Spanish

I am thinking that Spanish would probably be a good language to teach my kids. I don't personally know much (I took German in school), so I would have to rely on a good curriculum to teach them. I have a Kindergartener and 3 preschoolers. I've seen some workbooks, but at this age I was thinking something with DVD's or CD-ROM's might work better (would help with pronunciation too). I think they'd pick up on speaking it more quickly than writing/reading it, since they can barely read/write English at this point!

Anyway, I need recommendations please! A friend of mine recommends Boca Beth (bocabeth.com) but I'd like to consider more options before buying anything. Free online resources are definitely a plus too!

Thanks!

Rosetta Stone is THE foreign language curriculum. Right now they have some special offers going on. It is around $200 that's why we haven't gotten it yet.

I'm planning on using Sonrisas because it's very hands on and not too pricey:

Re: teaching Spanish

I don't think rosetta stone is really that good for younger kids, but muzzy is GREAT! It is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. You can find it on ebay for a good price sometimes. Spanish is a really easy one to find used! Plus if you find the VHS instead of the DVD ones they are useually a prety good price.
