How will my middle or high school homeschooler will succeed with my online?
I have been teaching Spanish for nearly 20 years. my research and experience have shown me that language is a subject that should not be learned alone. It is like math, skills build upon each other and it takes an experienced teacher to show spanish learners how to put the language together to gain proficiency.
Frequently Ask Questions
1- How much work and time my son or daughter has to put into the course weekly?
I recommend students block 4-6.5 hours every week. I provide students with a suggested daily, weekly calendar to pace the course. Remember most likely this is the first time your student is taking Spanish, so I recommend to finalize and determine the time after the first four weeks of the course.
2- I am not sure if this course is for may son or daughter. Can I talk to Sra. Morato?
Yes! Write me at email@example.com to set up an appointment to chat about your concern and your child's learning needs.
3- I want to know what my child is going to learn and understand how the course works.
Here is a link to the tour
4- Is my child going to be able to practice speaking and pronunciation with you?
Conversational and writing classes are classes are on Tuesdays 12:00 PM, except the last Tuesday of the month. Connecting with me is super easy, students need a good wifi, a quiet room, a computer and headphones with microphone to block noises. Please be aware, my years of teaching experience have taught me NO ALL students are ready to jump in the water and do this part of the language. Therefore, this is an optional activity to enrich their learning.
5- I would like to see a sample of one of your video teachings.
The following lesson is a sample of my grammar video teaching. Follow this link
6- Does this course meets credit requirements for my middle and high school child?
7- Why the grammar is not taught through live classes?
Research and years of teaching experience have taught me that homeschool students need flexibility and they also enjoy independent or self-direct studying options. By having short and effective grammar videos, it allows students learn at their own pace, take notes, practice the concept and identify if there is any problem understanding the grammar concept. My learning system, allows students that after each grammar lessons, the can ask questions or clarification through the comment feature of the program. Also, this feature of the course allows me to use our live time to practice speaking and learning other Spanish skills to gain proficiency.
8- Does my child need to join the secret Facebook feature of the group?
No, it is optional however Sra. Morato will be using the group for course updates, reminders, and also can be a space for students to ask questions for clarifications. NOTE student can use parents accounts.
9- What happens if my child gets behind?
Because life happens, the course has built remediation weeks between modules. I call these weeks "breathing weeks" that can be used to review, catch up, move ahead or work an project. There is a culture section on that week but there is not major assignments. Also, your student has access to the course for 12 months.
10- Do I need to buy a textbook and a workbook?
No, the course is a complete curriculum. However, some parents have asked me for textbook reference and workbooks for extra practice. I recommend a textbook as a study tool because most students benefit from it, however, buy a used one! Inside the course I make textbook and workbook recommendations for the ones that needed.
11- If the course is self-paced and self-study why do you close course enrollment?
Because the course has 100% teacher support, it will be incredibly challenged to meet students learning needs by having open enrollment all the time. By closing the course at a specified date, it allows me to focus only on the group that joined during the fall enrollment.
12- Once I enrolled my student what happen next?
Once enroll you will have access to the course. In addition, in the next 24-48 hours from Monday-Friday you will also receive an email from Sra. Morato to set up a on-boarding meeting to meet her and chat with her about the course.
