Strong Points:  Good starting point for Spanish language beginners because the various story settings are repeated throughout all the lessons.  So every time the student tries a different section of the program, the student has a general grasp from the previous presentations.
Weak Points: The cuteness of the program (Family Circus) is not suitable for a school secondary program.  It is too adorable for secondary students and infantile in its presentation.  Older students would be more comfortable using this program at home when their friends are not watching.
