A Special Learning Curriculum by

Learning a foreign language is a major difficulty for most students attending school and taking a foreign language as a requisite course, or as an elective study.

The problem in our schooling system is that Spanish classrooms often do not focus on conversational practice and intuitive learning, but on textbook study and examinations.

Many a young adult will tell you, though they took Spanish for three or four years in high school, they cannot speak it conversationally and would be lost if they traveled to any of the Spanish speaking countries of the world.

We at are dedicated helping you, your students and your children to locate interactive educational software tools that will greatly increase learning rate and success in any given subject. As communication is the basis of all successful interactions and relationships, we see it fitting to seek out the best iOS applications for learning foreign languages - so you don't have to!

This curriculum is put together for the purpose of giving your child a head start in learning Spanish.
