In today’s increasingly interconnected world, the importance of learning a second language cannot be overstated. However, with many schools struggling to find language teachers for their curriculum, providing high-quality world language education without a teacher can be challenging.
The shortage of qualified language teachers, particularly in smaller or more rural school districts or if you’re only offering a part-time position, is one of the most extensive obstacles school administration faces today. That doesn’t mean schools without language teachers should give up on providing world language education, but they do need to adapt.
There are alternative approaches to world language education that can be equally or more effective than an in-person teacher. These approaches can help schools easily provide their students with a high-quality and fun world language education while keeping costs low and ensuring teachers are certified for the job at hand.
Virtual Spanish Lessons: A Cost-Effective and Flexible Solution
At Sarah’s Spanish School, we partner with hundreds of school districts to bring virtual Spanish lessons right to their classroom smartboards. So you can cut out the lengthy interviews and lesson plans and jump straight to providing the best Spanish lessons for your students.
Our Spanish lessons are specifically designed to meet the needs of schools without a Spanish teacher. All of our classes are delivered online, using state-of-the-art technology that allows students to interact with their own certified Spanish teacher in real time.
This means that even elementary and middle schools in remote areas can provide their students with high-quality Spanish classes.
The Benefits of Virtual Spanish Classes for Schools
Here are just a few of the benefits of our virtual Spanish classes:
- Cost-Effective: By providing virtual Spanish classes, schools can save a significant amount of money on teacher salaries, benefits, and other expenses. This allows schools to offer world language education even on a tight budget.
- Flexibility: Your virtual Spanish teacher can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, and the scope and sequence are built for you and customized to fit your school’s master schedule. This means that administrators can offer Spanish classes on whatever days and times are convenient for them.
- Certified Teachers: Our virtual Spanish classes are taught by state-certified Spanish teachers who are passionate about the language and culture and trained to deliver effective and engaging instruction. This ensures your students are learning Spanish from true experts who really care about their long-term success and understanding.
- Interactive Learning: Your students will not be sitting on their own devices dragging and dropping words into pictures (boring!). Rather, students get to participate in the virtual Spanish program together with their classmates. Through movement, games, songs, stories, and more, your students will practice speaking new Spanish phrases with their classmates and participate in small group activities and games! This provides a fun and collaborative experience.
- Easy to Implement: Our virtual Spanish classes are easy to set up and implement. No more worrying about finding qualified teachers, developing lesson plans, building out a scope and sequence, or managing complex technology. We take care of everything and take world language completely off your plate, so the administration can move on to the many other important decisions they must make for their students.
