Have you always wanted your children to learn a second language? Did you know that there are between 35-40 million people who speak Spanish in America? Our family feels that Spanish is probably the most beneficial second language to learn because of this.
Spanish for you! is a great curriculum that will help your child on the road to fluency in the Spanish language. It is written and designed by a Spanish teacher who has been teaching for 14 years. You can learn more about the writer here.
The curriculum is very easy to use and flexible. You can use it with all of your children in 3-8th grade. You are able to use it as a self study, your entire family or in a co-op class setting. It works well in all of these situations. Each package will take you through an entire school year
Once you pick the package you would like to use (we received Estaciones which is seasons) you will be ready to get started on the exciting process of learning a second language. The packages can be done in order so you can pick what interests you and your children.
The three packages that are available now are Travel, Seasons and Celebrations. (Travel will be complete in June of this year.)
You can get each package in book form or e-book.
The package is $64.95 which is very affordable when you think about using it for your entire family. It comes with one theme that includes grades 3-8. You can also get 2 grade levels for $39.95 (3-4, 5-6, and 7-8)
Spanish for You! packages come complete with:
- soft cover book or e-book (currently only our trial pkgs.)
- 24-30 week lesson guide for the grades you need (24 weeks for G5-6 & 7-8, 30 weeks for G3-4) (PDF download)
- self-checking worksheets (PDF download)
- audio files of entire book (includes bonus audio of native speaker of entire book) (MP3 download)
- flashcard/activity pictures (PDF download)
- *Teacher lesson plans are NOT included. These need to be purchased separately. Please visit our CLASS USE page for important information on using Spanish for You! with classes.
The company is amazing to work with. I had problems with the downloads and they were very helpful and were happy to resend them and help me make sure I knew how to get things going.
Make sure you read the How to use the Curriculum before getting started because it can be very confusing if you try to do it without doing so.
I am impressed with the statement that most students who use this curriculum for a couple of years are ready to start high school Spanish. This is true for children as young as fifth grade.
We have started this but are planning on adding it to both children's school schedule in the fall.
If you are looking for an easy to use way to teach your children Spanish, Spanish for You! may be what you are looking for.

1 Smiley - Product not really for our family. Probably wouldn’t buy. This really should probably be a frown face but we hate to be negative.
2 Smileys - Would maybe buy this product if on sale. Not a great fit for our family.
3 Smileys - We really liked this product and would probably recommend this to friends and fellow homeschoolers.
4 – Smileys – Definitely would buy this if the budget would allow. We suggest you check this out to see if it is a fit for your family.
5 Smileys – Would sell the family pets to get this one (just kidding). A must have for our family and we think you should get it too.
Thank you to Spanish for You! and Mosaics Review for the opportunity to try this product.
