Hey homeschooling parent,

It’s no secret that you’ve got lots of things to do and little time to do it

including no time to spend hours searching online for random resources that don’t have a proven plan for success.

Your busy, on-the-go lifestyle leads to very little room for live foreign language classes, but you are concerned you won’t find a high-caliber program in a self-study format.

Yet you know that you want your teen to be fluent in Spanish.


You want your teen to have a well-rounded education, to learn things that will help them grow into responsible, resourceful, helpful members of society.



Becoming bilingual is a part of your goal for them. 


Teaching your child to speak another language – especially during the teen years – can feel daunting especially if you're not a qualified teacher or confident in speaking the language.

  • How do I find the right curriculum? 
  • How do I find the right resources?
  • How do I teach when I don’t know Spanish myself?

Maybe you’ve tried other programs or apps in the past, only to find you spend more time trying to get your child excited about learning Spanish or organizing lessons and resources that you had no time or energy left to enjoy homeschooling with your teen.

You need the flexibility of a self-paced Spanish course but with the support of Spanish-speaking teachers. Is this too good to be true?


You’re not alone, and the good news is that you don’t have to struggle with Spanish any longer.

Unlike other independent study resources that leave you feeling alone learning the language ...

This Spanish 1 is different!


This self-study, independent study Spanish 1 solution not only gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace but also includes support of native Spanish-speaking teachers when you need it.

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.

Our mission is to support homeschooling parents, educate bilingual families, and help learners fall in love with the Hispanic culture.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should my student know before taking Spanish 1? 

It’s not necessary to have had any previous Spanish experience before taking Spanish 1 as a middle or high school student, though those who have taken Spanish classes in elementary school definitely have a leg up in learning the concepts and communication skills.

How will the program help us stay on track?

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.

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.

What kind of live support does the Spanish 1 course with conversational classes offer?

Email and one live communication workshop per quarter.

Can a 6th grader take the course?
