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

Cathy Duffy's review:

"Breaking the Spanish Barrier might be one of the most affordable options for those looking for a course that teaches both grammar and practical conversational usage. The homeschool package for Level One includes a worktext, audio CDs, answer key, testing program, and Oasis Travel Dictionary. You might want to invest instead in the three-year program package that includes the course and testing materials for all three levels."

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."
