The Transparent Language Online Homeschool Subscription includes everything you need to support your student and meet the requirements of your district*.
Comprehensive courses designed for independent study mean that no parental knowledge of French, Latin, or Spanish is required. Each course was created by certified teachers to meet the foreign language requirements of most states*. These courses are delivered in Transparent Language Online, meaning your student's learning activity is tracked and reported to you. A subscription includes all of the following content for your language, but you can choose the course that best fits your student's grade level as a starting point:
Elementary French & Spanish
These courses deliver 3 years of basic French or Spanish - ideal for students in grades 3, 4, 5, or 6. The program includes 68 complete lessons, divided into 3 levels of increasing depth and duration, all appropriate for young, beginner students. 8 game-like learning activities, complete with native speaker audio, build the four core skills in lessons short enough to keep your student’s attention. A student workbook is also included.
“Teen Voices” French & Spanish
Delivering 80+ hours of lessons focused on the everyday lives of typical teens, the “Teen Voices” course is packed with vocabulary your middle and high school students will actually want to use. This beginner-level course includes 3 years of learning material. Also included is a workbook for additional grammatical, cultural, and lexical practice. Parents have access to an answer key for the workbook, as well as an instructor guide that outlines how to conveniently implement the 20-unit course in any schedule.
Introduction to Latin
The Introduction to Latin course is a two-level course: Level I and Level II. Each level has 8 units, for a total of 16 units in the course. Each unit contains 3-5 vocabulary lessons and 1 grammar lesson. Each vocabulary lesson teaches approximately 15-20 useful and frequently occurring words and phrases (that’s approximately 1,200 words and phrases in the entire course!) The grammar lesson uses the newly-acquired vocabulary in contextual grammar drills.
Core skill-building activities
Give your student a robust program that builds all four core skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
You can't learn to read or write if you don't know the alphabet. Students also have access to our comprehensive Alphabet courses. (French and Spanish only)
Your student can build proficiency by learning thousands of useful words and phrases categorized by topic and presented in an engaging, memory-building format complete with native speaker pronunciation.
Build speaking skills
Speech-enable learning activities like Multiple Choice allow your student to answer questions by speaking instead of clicking, encouraging speech in the language.
Students can compare their pronunciation to that of a native speaker with our proprietary EveryVoice™ technology in Pronunciation Practice activities.
All courses listed above include assessment tests that let you and your student know where they stand.
We sure do, and more! An extensive collection of grammar lessons is appropriately integrated into the courses. These video and written explanations cover hundreds of grammar topics, providing students with a foundation to build upon.
Great for exchange students! Students can take their language learning on-the-go with mobile apps that work offline.
Track and report on your student’s progress and activity.
Utilize pre-made courses to save on valuable preparation time.
Assign due dates to lessons for your student to complete and monitor their progress through reports.
Print workbooks for extra practice and use in the creation of study guides.
