Guest post from Homeschool Spanish Academy (HSA).
Are you searching for an excellent homeschool Spanish curriculum?
With a quality homeschool Spanish curriculum, students acquire Spanish naturally by doing developmentally appropriate activities in an immersive environment that provides lots of opportunities to speak, read, and write Spanish. Learning Spanish in a homeschool setting benefits your child academically, cognitively, and socially.
If your goal is for your children to become proficient or fluent in Spanish, you’ll need to find a comprehensive curriculum with authentic language learning practice to create an immersive experience for your kids.
Spanish is not only the official language of about two dozen countries but also one spoken by more than 500 million people worldwide.
Learning the language opens up the possibility of studying or working in Spain or Latin America, as well as traveling in Spanish-speaking countries with knowledge of the language.
Learning Spanish is relatively easy for English speakers, due to the overlap between Spanish and English vocabulary that results from their common Latin roots.
What’s more, most people in Spanish-speaking countries are Catholic. In their Spanish classes, your child will have the unique opportunity to learn about Catholic holidays and traditions such as Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Spain and Latin America.
Homeschool Spanish Academy (HSA) offers live classes with certified Spanish teachers for all ages—preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school students. (Classes for adults are also available!) Instead of teaching grammar and vocabulary exclusively, HSA uses a unique immersive Spanish method that helps students become fluent in the language.
HSA provides personal classes scheduled at your convenience that employ a dynamic curriculum to provide your child with a comprehensive and engaging learning experience. Rather than prioritizing grammar memorization, HSA’s balanced approach to Spanish language learning focuses on five key concepts:
All HSA teachers are native Spanish speakers from Guatemala, and they make conversation a priority in every class.
For students who read and write, the HSA curricula combine auditory comprehension through speaking with the teacher with written practice. The end result is that you develop skills in all areas of language learning—reading, writing, listening and speaking.
What’s more, HSA’s program enables you to make your own schedule, choose your instructor, and reschedule or cancel a session if needed. Students can choose their session frequency, although HSA recommends taking at least 2 classes per week.
In addition, we share many free and low-cost ways to reinforce language learning, as well as practical tips and resources for teaching Spanish to children that complement our homeschool Spanish curriculum. Check out our blog, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.
HSA is affordable! The per-class price is significantly lower than other options for live online classes. You even have flexibility when it comes to payment options. (Learn more about our pricing.)
If you have two similarly-aged children who want to learn Spanish, they can take HSA classes together from the same computer or device—saving you time, energy, and money! This economical option is perfect for siblings or friends.
