Language Odyssey provides a complete curriculum in Spanish and French for two age groups — lower primary (grades 1-3) and upper primary (grades 4-6). Programs using supplementary materials can also be created for grades 7-8. This program can be used as a stand-alone curriculum or as a supplement to curriculum already being used in the classroom.
The Language Odyssey program includes:
- Teachers’ Guides (including lesson plans) and classroom materials;
- Multifaceted Books for students to use at home and in class; and
- Lesson and Song/Culture Audio Files which can be downloaded and used in conjunction with the books to increase a student’s exposure to the language.
