Our teachers are experienced at communicating well and clearly over video call. Many of the homework assignments and print outs will be given through Google Classroom.
Online classes are structured similarly to in-person learning. They are designed to fit each group's needs and levels, with instruction tailored to their needs.
How many times do the students need to connect a week? Ultimately, the schedule is determined by the group's availability and goals. We recommend scheduling two hours a week to hit a 40 hour semester in 20 weeks (4-5 months).
What kind of Spanish will they learn? Our teachers are all native Hondurans, but they will teach general Spanish language and grammar for Latin America and Spain. How far can they study? We would love for the students to study with us until they reach full Spanish fluency. Our curriculum is divided into five levels, which they would reach in 2.5 years if they are studying in semesters.
Do the students need to study outside of class time? Yes, our workbooks include additional independent practices that students should work on throughout the week to reinforce what they're learning in class.
Can they come visit Honduras? At the end of level 5, 11th grade or above can come for a study abroad visit. If the family would like to visit the school together, or come and study for any period of time, we can arrange all that you need here in Siguatepeque.
How does the curriculum work? The curriculum is structured similarly to what one would find in public schools, but with a more in-depth structure that is fitted to the students' progression and interests.
