You do not need to feel overwhelmed when you try to figure out the curriculum requirements for your child to learn Spanish at home.
I can help.
My name is Karim Morato. I have homeschooled three children, and as a homeschool parent I know the feeling of not wanting to hold back your children from learning subjects that you have limited knowledge about.
For example, I am not a mathematically-minded person, and I haven’t studied math to an expert level. So as my children progressed in their education, I started buying self-directed mathematics courses with videos and textbooks for them to study. It all seemed to be going OK, until my children took some tests and I realized that their skills levels were surprisingly low considering all the hard work they’d put in!
You may not be fluent in Spanish and you maybe do not feel equipped or able to teach Spanish at the required level. In those cases, you may be looking for programs that can give you a level of support and are affordable, that you can trust to give your child the education he or she needs in Spanish. This is why I created my online Spanish courses to make Spanish language learning more accessible for homeschooled students.
I am a certified Spanish instructor, native speaker, language coach and online curriculum designer. My online Spanish course will help you to homeschool your child so they can gain the confidence they need to build the skill he/ she needs to speak Spanish and become bilingual.
This is beyond the foundation-level Spanish course for homeschooled students who are middle, junior high or high school ages. The course will teach students how to keep building upon the Spanish 1 skills. Students will be introduced to new tenses such as past tense, commands and introduction to subjunctive. They will recycle Spanish 1 vocabulary and skills and learn new vocabulary to speak more complex ideas and produce a higher level of proficiency. Students will use all skills: listening, reading, writing, speaking and interacting but will focus on speaking, interacting and writing to promote proficiency and communication while exploring the Hispanic culture.
After almost 9 months your child will be confident learning and speaking Spanish at a beyond beginner’s level and move into novice high- intermediate low-high student. Depending on the current skills of the student.

"Señora Morato's online classes have been wonderful for all three of my children. Two of them have transition perfectly into college Spanish and public high school Spanish. The third will do so next year. This course is perfect for homeschoolers who are serious about Spanish!! "
-Mrs. Yoho, Parent
"I really liked writing and speaking. It was helpful to use everything we learned. The oral presentations give a student the opportunity to be more creative with Spanish!"

"At first, oral presentations seemed daunting, but since we did them so often that it was much easier with practice, and now I really enjoy them!"
- Abigail, Spanish 2 student
