The Somos Curriculum® is a Proficiency-oriented curriculum for Novice and Intermediate Spanish learners that is designed for middle and high school courses. Instruction in The Somos Curriculum® focuses on language acquisition or implicit language development rather than explicit teaching and practice of grammar and vocabulary. Lessons are highly communicative and conducted primarily in the target language. 

With detailed daily lesson plans, target-language scripts, tutorials for making input comprehensible, student activities, assessments, and suggestions for differentiation, The Somos Curriculum® is the most complete Spanish curriculum on the market, and it is no surprise that it is used in more than 100,000 language classrooms worldwide.

  • All of my students LOVED what I was able to present from this lesson plan!!! Some of them are SPORTS OBSESSED so having them read about sports in Spanish was super easy to ask! Despite being Spanish level I = they did an amazing job! Thanks Martina for creating interesting and relevant lessons that students LOVE!

  • This has been my favorite way to teach sports so far. My students loved the story about the girl who can't play and it sparked lots of conversation! I will use this year after year!

  • Great engaging resource to learn new vocabulary and grammar.

  • There was much more than I needed for my purposes. Will keep using in the future. The texts were great for my students. My students found the "Niños Triquis" text and video super interesting.

  • My first experience with Somos, I wanted to try it out before I committed to a whole curriculum. My kids were engaged and learned easily!
