Homeschool Spanish Academy Works!

Hi Neighbors!

As you all know I recently became part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew.  As part of this crew, I receive many different types of homeschool curriculum to share here with my neighbors At the Fence!  I am so excited to be a part of this crew!  So throughout the next few months you will be seeing many reviews for curriculum that you can both use at home for homeschooling or as refresher courses.


First up is one we have really enjoyed!  It is called Homeschool Spanish Academy.  One reason we enjoyed this one is because a church we visit in Chicago has quite a few Spanish speaking families, and although many speak English several of them are more comfortable speaking Spanish.  I chose my two sons to take advantage of this class.  It is an online, live, video class.  You actually see and hear the teacher and are able to ask questions as you go along.  Not only is it great having an online teacher, but she is actually from and lives in a Spanish speaking country.  The boys enjoyed this!  Sometimes they were able to explain English uses of words with her.

One very important thing to do before you sign up is to run the test on their site to see if your computer is "up to speed".  And you can take advantage of their free trial. You will need a webcam, microphone and head set for this class, along with a Skype account.  Approximately one hour before our first lesson we were contacted by someone to be sure our computer connection met the requirements. Shortly before the time set for their lesson we pulled up our Skype, hooked in the headsets and microphone and waited.  As scheduled, we received a video call.  After greeting both boys, their teacher asked them some questions to find out just where they were as far as knowing Spanish.  Since neither one has taken Spanish previously she began with the alphabet.

Pricing for the course is very reasonable.  Remember, you receive one on one through Skype.  There is a discount for two students close in age taking the Spanish course together.  Below is the pricing for the High School Level, but the do also teach Early Learning (starting at 5 years old), Middle School, High School and Adults.  You can find the other pricing by visiting their site.



Both my sons were able to participate in the Spanish classes.  We opted for one class a week.  You get to choose a teacher and a time.  All of our classes were in the afternoon.  After each class the boys received a lesson to study, along with homework papers that they had to complete and return before their next class. You can do the classes minus the video, but it does make it more difficult.  We only had to do this once during a class and we never figured out the cause.  Both boys have improved just in the 6 weeks we have been taking this course.  Next week they have a quiz to see what they have actually learned.   I am sure they will be spending plenty of time this week studying.

This is definitely worth looking into if you have a student who will be taking Spanish.  we here At the Fence want to recommend Homeschool Spanish Academy to our neighbors.
