Do you feel overwhelmed when you try to figure out the curriculum requirements for your child to learn Spanish at home?
You may have already tried self-directed Spanish courses, only to find that you and your child get stuck along the way and nobody is there to help you progress.
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 and that you can trust to give your child the education he or she needs. This is why I created 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 speak Spanish and become bilingual.
This is a foundation-level Spanish course for homeschooled students who are middle, junior high or high school ages. The program teaches the language concepts and skills for beginners to start communicating in Spanish.
After almost 9 months your child will be confident learning and speaking Spanish at a beginner’s level and ready to progress to higher levels of language learning.

"I think learning from Sra. Morato is best because you have access to videos she pre-recorded, and if you have any questions, you can ask her during a conversational class or a study hall. She is very patient, and this class has made me consider studying linguistics in college!"
- Colin, Spanish Student
"Taking Spanish with
Señora Morato has really helped me to begin to understand the Spanish language. I know this will help me in the future because I will be able to continue on in learning Spanish. Someday I might even be able to be bilingual which will help me in my career."
- James, Spanish Student
"My name is Alisha I am 13 and in 7th grade. Spanish is one of my favorite subjects this year!!!!! Sra. Morato is such an amazing teacher! She helps to encourage me when I struggle. What I really enjoy is that I actually have classmates that I can communicate with and relate to. Being homeschooled I don't usually have classmates, especially not that I can contact. It is encouraging to have fellow students, and a wonderful teacher, for this year, and hopefully years to come, to share joy and sometimes sorrow (but mainly JOY) with"
"My daughter enjoys this course. Sra.. Morato teaches in a way that encourages her students to want to learn the language. Makes this momma happy to know my child is enjoying learning Spanish and seems to be retaining it."
- Mrs. Dison
"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!! "
"He went from resistance to learning Spanish to enjoying it and looking forward to class. What a change. Thank you so much Sra. Morato."
- Mrs. Parsons
"Sra. Morato's enthusiasm for teaching Spanish is contagious! In her Spanish 1 class, she has created a solid foundation for learning through the well organized online class and the weekly classes provide a great opportunity to practice with fellow students. We've loved this class so much and have heartily recommended it to fellow homeschoolers!"
After an extensive consultation with parents, I was able to define and develop the exact packages of teaching and support that homeschooling parents want for their teens. It delivers everything your child needs to learn foundation level Spanish successfully.
