I have taught Spanish for a decade now and never seen better curriculum to reach this target audience, the early primary years. I have not only used Johanna’s songs to teach my Spanish classes but have also been inspired by her teaching methodology using the motions, games, and songs to create a love of language learning and to help the student retain the information they have been taught. My students have really soaked up Spanish through this technique. They have even taught other students Spanish on the playground. The parents at my school are thrilled with the results; after teaching a pilot year the parents have enthusiastically requested to continue this program, and we are now in our second year. If you are looking to start a primary Spanish program at your school, I cannot recommend this methodology strongly enough. Thank you Johanna, this is the best!

I just wanted to thank you for all the beautiful and fun videos and worksheets. I’m raising bilingual children and also teach Spanish to my kindergarten class. Thanks for making such good content.
Have a great day,
I feel like you are a member of our family for all the hours that you have been on our living room television over the past six weeks!
I seriously can’t thank you enough for your youtube channel. Our twin girls (age 4) watch it almost every day right now as I cook dinner. Then, when we sit down to eat, our family inevitably dives into Spanish/English discussions (both my husband and I speak Spanish okay, but we’ve never been very good about teaching the girls until now.). My twins consider you to be a real-life Disney princess and they were shocked to find out that “you are real”. They know all the lyrics (and motions) to many of your songs already… Even my one year old son has been running around randomly calling out, “Rojo!” You are such a talented teacher and we sure appreciate your efforts. Learning Spanish has been one of the few pluses to our crazy pandemic spring and for that, I will be forever grateful.

Hola, mi nombre es Wilma Rodriguez soy puertorriquena y llevo 4 anos trabajando en una escuela de imersion en espanol, en los grados de 1ero y ahora estoy en kinder en Beaverton, Oregon. Desde que te encontre me haz inspirado bastante y me encanta tu estilo de ensenar. Es algo dificil ensenar espanol a english speaker people, es un reto, pero atravez de las canciones he hecho magia, y eso te lo debo a ti. Aunque tu no lo sepas, hemos sido un equipo. Muchas gracias querida Johanna. Solo me gustaria conocerte en persona y cantar juntas y que visitaras mi clase. Seria un verdadero gusto 😀 La verdad que haz sido de gran ayuda. Gracias.
I just want to say that I have been using your videos to teach my homeschool students Spanish for two years. I am amazed by your approach and my students absolutely love you! You make the process fun and engaging for children and adults. My students are currently in 3rd and 1st grade. I hope you will continue to expand the number of topics that you teach because I cannot imagine having Spanish class without you! Also, I wonder if you plan to develop any curriculum program to sell? I would definitely pay for additional resources from you if you ever plan to make them. Thank you so much for what you do, your joyful personality, beautiful voice and talent is a true gift. We really cannot thank you enough. I have two students who are speaking Spanish and loving the learning process with you. I hope you know what a difference you are making.
I have been so grateful for your videos this year. They have transformed my teaching!
I hated my preschool teaching days before I started with your videos. Now I look forward to them.
My name is Becky Werle and I homeschool my 4 daughters. I have used many Spanish curriculums to try and teach them, but not being a native Spanish speaker myself, it has proven difficult for all of us. We just happened upon one of your videos last week, and my girls have been watching all of your videos nonstop. They asked if we could start using this for our Spanish homeschool and I said, “YES!” I have printed off the pages for the notebooks, ordered your CD, and we will be starting your program and learning together starting Monday. Thank you is not enough! Thank you for
creating something that my kids are excited to learn and for having it available for everyone to use. I will be sharing your program with the homeschool moms I know. We can’t wait for even more content from you in the future!
Thank you for what you do. It’s my first year teaching Spanish and watching your videos and reading your tips on your blog have given me some great ideas and have helped me be the kind of teacher I want to be.
My two boys really enjoy learning Spanish from you! They look forward to their video lessons every day after school when they get home!
