We developed a curriculum uniquely designed for age-specific, immersive language learning.
Our Curriculum’s Four Pillars
Our curriculum for elementary, middle, and high school Spanish is built to help your child experience success. Here are the core features you can count on:
- Immersion-based: Supports instruction of Spanish in Spanish.
- Age-appropriate: Standards-based and aligned to grade-level learning objectives.
- Promote functionality: Six levels systematically teach students to read, write and speak, leading to bilingualism.
- Results-driven: Integrated assessments provide benchmarks for tracking student progress and goals.
Levels 1 & 2: Early Elementary Grades
The most effective way to teach Spanish is by staying in Spanish. Primary grade students are developmentally predisposed to learn new languages. Levels 1 & 2 focus on the basics of Spanish. Concrete vocabulary of the house and the community are used to develop simple conversational skills that acclimate students to the immersive setting and build a foundation for future learning. Students will also learn the basics of reading and writing in Spanish.
Levels 3 & 4: Mid-Elementary Grades
Designed for the middle elementary grades, students continue to develop their Spanish by expanding the community conversation to the city. The conversation grows to include various Spanish speaking countries through fun weekly readings. Students broaden their vocabulary while being introduced to present and past verb tenses.
Levels 5 & 6: Late Elementary & Junior High
In the later elementary and junior high grades, the My Spanish Journey curriculum takes students from the city out into the world. Students learn about the various cultures and global topics which include time zones, weather patterns, monetary systems, and geography, as well as cultural topics of gestures, greetings and customs. They practice speaking and writing in the past, present and future verb tenses as they continue to develop language skills, and work toward true bilingualism.
Don't take our word for it. Take theirs.
“The friendships my son has with his My Spanish Journey classmates have been so valuable. He has been encouraged and supported every step of the way with compassionate, highly trained instructors who gently guide him toward an acceptance of other cultures with the goal of building a global citizen.”
“Our children love their My Spanish Journey online classes. After one week, our five and seven year olds are speaking Spanish around our home. The classes are interesting and engaging. I appreciate the fun, creative, and knowledgeable teachers.”

“I am so excited to offer students these brand new classes! Staying engaged over the summer is essential, but as always, we wanted to make it FUN. My goal is that our students look forward to these lessons and that they feel more laid-back than school, because they’re having such a great time.”
“The magic of My Spanish Journey is that the children not only learn Spanish—they learn how to apply their language skills in a real-world setting.”
“Thank you, My Spanish Journey, for immersion style learning. And thank you for providing such high quality teachers.”
“As PTC President for the past two years and current board member, I have received consistent positive feedback from parents and faculty regarding My Spanish Journey and the value this program brings to the kids.”
“I feel very lucky that I was able to be a student in your program for so long as well as go to Costa Rica with the My Spanish Journey Team. I know my life wouldn’t be the same if I had not been in My Spanish Journey. This year I took a Spanish literature class and read my first Spanish novel called Primera Memoria and I started translating documents for an immigration lawyer in Sante Fe! I am now planning to minor in Spanish, hopefully keep translating, and study abroad to keep learning. I can’t thank My Spanish Journey enough!”
“Thank you for your teaching and encouragement. Thanks to My Spanish Journey, I was able to test into Spanish 3 freshman year and take AP 4 and AP Literature my Sophomore year and Junior year, and I got a 4 and a 5 on both exams! I really enjoyed taking the classes, especially literature, and I wouldn’t have gotten to take them if it weren’t for your fun classes!”
“Our children love their My Spanish Journey online classes. We were skeptical but willing to give it a try. After one week, our five and seven year olds are speaking Spanish around our home. The classes are interesting and engaging. I appreciate the fun, creative, and knowledgeable teachers. Thank you!”
“We love My Spanish Journey! I can’t believe how well my son and daughter are doing in Spanish class. So glad I found the program! I highly recommend!”
