We know choosing the perfect Spanish curriculum for your family is important. Please review our FAQs below and if we don’t answer your question, contact us here. We would love to hear from you!

Yes! If you’re on the fence about which level to pick, try this placement quiz.

We know every child’s language development, fluency level, academic skill set etc is unique. This tool seeks to serve you in placing your child accurately.

At the end of the quiz we will match you to one of our curricula levels. If we don’t think your child fits any of our curricula levels (this could be due to age / fluency level / or a combo of both), we’ll tell you in the results and provide other recommendations.

The Preschool Spanish Morning Binder is designed as a gentle introduction to Spanish first concepts. Essentially, a PRIMER to Level 1.

It develops foundational skills such as learning the Spanish alphabet, introducing syllables, counting 1-20, shapes, colors, animals, weather etc.

It is ideal for younger learners who are not quite ready for a formal curriculum, but can manage simple ‘printables’. Many families use both simultaneously.

The binder is less structured and easier to pick up and put down throughout the homeschool week. 

Level 1 is a complete and comprehensive curriculum for that offers much greater depth in terms of literacy, math and phonics content.

Counting goes up to 100 and includes basic addition and subtraction with number bonds. There are far more audio comprehensions, games, songs, art appreciation and stories, all taught through 12 thematic units.

Yes. You can jump straight into level 1 if your child is ready for a more formal curriculum.

Please see the previous FAQ about the difference between the two programs.

Our program is very popular amongst native and heritage Spanish speakers because it mirrors a ‘dual language’ experience for Spanish language arts.

We provide bilingual scripts, meaning you can facilitate the lessons in Spanish (read the blue ink), written by a native Spanish speaker. This allows you to provide a totally immersive experience for your child.

Your child may already know the thematic vocabulary but will strengthen foundational skills in phonics, early math, comprehension, and more, through materials rooted in Hispanic art and literature. 

Of course not! We have a lot of families learning Spanish alongside their children and we support you every step of the way.

The textbook provides scripted lessons in both English and Spanish. English is in purple, which is what you would read.

We also provide native speaker audio, and pronunciation guides for vocabulary and songs. We even provide transcripts for the longer audios!

Everything is setup to support you so your experience is fun and stress free!

While our curricula levels do acknowledge, and correlate with, the ‘Common core standards en español’ (CCSS en español), our levels do not match public school grade levels.
 
Llamitas Spanish® is an independent program. Our levels maintain extremely high standards and are academically robust, rooted in Hispanic culture, music, art and literature.
 
Level 1 is correlated to Kindergarten CCSS en Español. It’s perfect for beginners ages 5-10, OR bilingual kids ages 5-6. No prior Spanish is required.
 
Level 2 is closely correlated to Primer grado CCSS en Español. It requires Level 1 as a prerequisite OR minimum 1 year of formal dual language education. OR bilingual kids ages 6-8. 
 
Level 3 is closely correlated to Segundo grado CCSS en Español. It requires Levels 1 and 2 as a prerequisite OR minimum 2 years of a formal dual language education. OR for bilingual kids ages 7-9.

Yes. The Llamitas Spanish Levels 1-3 and the Morning Binder do not include any religious teachings or biblical content.
