Resources for Spanish Learners at Home

Dear parents and guardians,

 

We understand that adjustments have to be made during this challenging time. To offer you some support with our young Spanish learners, here is a list of Spanish learning resources you can use with them while they are home from school. 

 

This special compilation comes to you thanks to many helping hands like our friends Andrés and Christina from 123 Andrés, the Latin Grammy Award-winning duo, and Ana Maia Calabrese, singer-songwriter, founder of Spanish plus me. Thank you!

 

We truly hope this time off schools is temporary, and we are looking forward to meeting our students again in the classroom.
