For Homeschool, Parents, and Tutors

The Spanish Homeschool Program is an adapted version of the Spanish School Program optimized for smaller groups of 2-4 students.

We have compiled all of the student material from the school program into a comprehensive package which includes an Instructor Manual for homeschoolers. Likewise, the student book illustrated pages are used instead of the school program posters and the domino & workbook word flashcards are used instead of picture & color-coded word cards.

Risas y Sonrisas keeps students actively engaged while having fun learning Spanish at their own pace and with their preferred learning style.

The Instructor License to the Online Program with content and dashboard is included in your program for one year. Student Logins can be added to an Instructor License and both expire at the same time.
