The power of stories.
Story-based learning is the most natural and time-honored way to support language acquisition. Not only do stories make learning a language more fun, they also help students better process and retain information. Stories stick in students’ minds. They motivate and engage. When students encounter stories written at their level about topics they find interesting, the learning process takes flight!
Story-based lessons with audio
Choose from our library of 1.2k+ stories to assign Spanish lessons for your students across a wide selection of themes. Lessons include images, illustrations, and audio to support comprehension for multilevel learners.
Guided learning paths
Use our learning paths to assign your students a collection of lessons focused on a core topic or set of vocabulary. As students progress along the path, scaffolded vocabulary is slowly introduced to help them read with confidence!
Each lesson includes challenge questions to help students deepen their understanding and create meaningful connections to the text. These sequential assessments provide you with a bird’s eye view of your students’ progress.
Add lessons to each class’s Biblioteca to give your students opportunities for self-guided practice. You choose which lessons to add, and your students choose which lessons they want to read and how many times!
In-person or distance learning
Engage your students in the classroom or remotely through a completely secure, online library of texts. Ditch the stress of paperwork and preptime! All of our lessons are ready-to-go whenever you need them.
