Our children are adopted from Korea so I think it would be very meaningful for them to learn Korean. It is scarey to me because it is a different type of writting but I am sure they will do fine. I would even like to give it a whirl but already feel overwhelmed just thinking of it. But, I am off track here , I am just wondering if this is something a wiggly boy would sit through at 7 or if I should start later??? I look forward to your input.
I think it depends on the child. We got Rosetta this year, and my 13, 11 and 9 year olds were totally fine with it. Okay, the 9 year old is still sulking, because he wanted French instead of Spanish.
However, my 7 year old, while anxious to try it, was really put off by the voice recognition component, so we decided to wait a year. I had put it on the easiest voice setting. He requires a lot of hand holding still with his schoolwork. I'm sure some kids even younger than 7 would enjoy it. Would be interesting to hear from other moms with 7 year olds where it worked out well.
