Teaching a foreign language at home can be difficult, especially if you don’t have anyone in your home that speaks the language you are learning. Spanish seems to be a popular second language choice here in the United States. Finding the right Homeschool Spanish Resources can be a task though.
There are so many books, cds, videos, live feeds, online classes, co-ops, and more! I have created a Mega List of Homeschool Spanish Resources (many recommended by homeschoolers themselves) for you to choose from.
Homeschool Spanish Resources
I have scoured the Internet, asked in homeschool groups and forums, and come up with an extensive list of homeschool Spanish resources for you. There are online, live, textbooks, interactive and so many more types of homeschool Spanish resources here for all ages!
