Live Speaking Classes start
Tuesday August 28th at 1:00 PM EST
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. And my online Spanish education program will help you to homeschool your child so they can gain the confidence they need to 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.

Learning outcomes: Students use Spanish to greet and say goodbye, describe the weather, and state the day of the week and date.

How will the program help us stay on track? In the past we had a hard time sticking to a program and schedule. It’s too easy to fall behind and let things slide.
1- This program gives the student a roadmap to success with a level of flexibility and a degree of accountability. Students can access the course, the lessons, tools, and activities any time, any place.
2- Parents and students are able to record their progress and assessment results for each module and quarter. Students are able to build their grade as they move forward throughout the course. This makes grading easy to track and also to fulfill foreign language requirements.
What if my child gets frustrated after a few failures and tends to give up trying?
You may want to consider buying the course with the conversational classes. Speaking Spanish every week is proven to provide motivation and a meaningful experience.
If I buy ONLY the independent course without the conversational classes, can my child still learn the foundation of how to communicate in Spanish?
Yes! Every grammar lesson shows how to apply the concept. Also, there are video-conversations that students can watch and learn how to apply the language on their own or with another student.
If I buy the course with the conversational classes, what if my child is too shy, socially nervous to participate in the conversational classes?
1- You can choose the independent study course without the speaking classes.
2- In the past, some students started only observing or choose to participate only using the chat feature. Students are not seen on camera because only the audio feature is used during class.
3- The learning environment of each conversational class is that our classes are a safe place to make mistakes, be encouraged and learn from each other.
What kind of live support does the Spanish 1 course with conversational classes offer?
After each lesson and module the student can use the “comment” feature of the course to ask questions or receive feedback.
What kind of checkpoints does the independent Spanish 1 course offer?
Weekly emails are sent to the student to remind them and help them stay focused and engaged through the course. In addition, students will receive study tips and strategies on how to overcome learning challenges.
How does the Facebook Spanish Club work?
The club is a student focus club. The club gives outstanding and passionate Spanish learners the opportunity take leadership roles to support other Spanish learners by clarifying homework questions, grammar rules, etc. The club is overseen and administered by Spanish Certified Teachers, one of them Sra. Morato, however, students can apply for leadership positions such as club president, vice-president, and student-tutor to built up college resume or volunteer hours.
