Is your homeschool teen loving learning Spanish?
Is your student speaking in present tense, starting to conquer simple conversations, and ready to move past the repetition stage?
Is your student ready to start using new phrasing to describe things and ready to be challenged in fluency?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, your student is likely ready for the next step in his or her bilingual education. He or she is at the place of moving beyond Spanish basics, like repetition and vocabulary, and into more fluent conversation, descriptive phrases, and complicated tenses.
But just because your student is ready for the next level, it doesn’t mean that you feel ready to teach it. High level Spanish can feel intimidating to the homeschool parent, and with good reason.
There’s a lot that goes into teaching a foreign language when you’re the one putting together the curriculum, finding resources, and putting in the time to learn it first yourself.
If you’re overwhelmed, you’re not alone.
You don’t have to do it by yourself.
You don’t have to hire an expensive one-on-one Spanish tutor for your student.
You don’t have to stress about the foreign language requirement for graduation.
Unlike other resources that leave you doing the organizing to create a learning plan ...
Spanish 2 is different!
This is a done-for-you, comprehensive Spanish solution that reinforces the learning, teaches mastery of pronunciation, and helps your student conquer beginning conversations, even if you as the parent have never spoken a word of Spanish.

Hola, my name is Karim Morato,
a certified Spanish instructor, a native Spanish speaker and an MA Ed in online learning and curriculum instruction.
As a homeschool parent myself, I know the feeling of not wanting to hold back your children from learning subjects that you have limited knowledge about. It was that way for me with mathematics, so I invested in outside resources, teachers, and programs to support my children as they learned higher level math.
You may not be fluent in Spanish, or you may not feel equipped or able to teach Spanish at the required level and that’s okay. In those cases, you may be looking for a course that can give you a level of support, is affordable and that you can trust to give your child the education he or she needs.
This is why I created this Spanish 1 Foundation course for your teens – make Spanish language learning more accessible for homeschooled students and to support YOU the parent.
My online Spanish 1 course will help you to homeschool your child so they can gain the confidence they need to speak Spanish and become bilingual.
