The SOMOS Curriculum
The SOMOS Curriculum is a Comprehension-based™, proficiency-oriented curriculum for beginning language classes. SOMOS gives you suggested daily, step-by-step instructions so that you can focus on developing the techniques that make this way of teaching so effective. If you are experienced in Comprehension-based™ methods of teaching, incorporate SOMOS’ culture-rich materials into your instruction, adding in your own unique flair.
See a detailed overview of all SOMOS 1 units.
“I was almost ready to give up teaching before I found SOMOS. It was definitely a life changer for me! Before SOMOS I felt like I was just trying to force feed my students information for a quiz or test. […] It frustrated me enough to want to quit, then I found Martina’s blog and started reading more about CI and TPRS and it just clicked, for me and my students. Having a CI friendly school is always a bonus, but both schools I’ve used SOMOS at didn’t even know what CI was until I taught using it there. Now they are believers of it too!”ANDREA H.

Hoy en la historia
These slides can be used as a Brain Break tournament, a Bellringer, a Bulletin Board, or Free Reading material for your classes.
Each slide describes four events: three events that happened on that day in history, and one event that is fictitious. All events are written in simple Spanish. Students should read all four events and then guess which one is the “Intruder”; the event that contains a factual error.
