Here's what a few leading homeschool educators have to say! 

Anne Guarnera's review:

"The multimedia format of Breaking the Barrier’s new offering enhances students’ cultural education by including engaging cultural videos and articles that capture the richness and diversity of Spanish- and French-speaking countries. The videos in the Spanish curriculum introduce students to traditional Argentinian music and Mexican chocolate art, among other topics, and I love that they go beyond Cinco de Mayo and tacos. High schoolers probably don’t need to read any more about those, but they will benefit from learning about other facets of the Spanish- and French- speaking worlds. "

Cathy Duffy's review:

"These programs comprise a full curriculum for foreign language study, covering all the major structures and topics typically found at each level of study. Completion of each level qualifies for one credit for high school students. These courses move quickly and are best for those who already have had some exposure to the language.

A core worktext is the main component for each course, but it is greatly enhanced by the features of the new online version. You can purchase a physical book, subscribe for online access, or get both packaged together at a discount."

How To Homeschool's review:


  • "The program works great in homeschool situations – and the homeschool teacher/parent doesn’t need to know the chosen language. (Whew!)"
  • "The Homeschool Package includes everything you need for a year’s worth of foreign language instruction. So, there’s no need to look for outside or supplemental resources. (That’s nice!)."
  • "I love, love, love the workbooks – as in I absolutely, 100% love the workbooks."

Old Schoolhouse's review:

"This is by far the most affordable choice I have come across that also provides such excellent instruction and feedback. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a solid foreign language program, and we intend to continue through the available levels for future studies in Spanish."
