Join SEPA Online to learn conversation skills in Spanish through culture!

SEPA Online is a program that provides an opportunity for students in Kindergarten to 5th grade to build a foundation in the Spanish language and an understanding of cultural diversity.

Classes begin in September 7th



Online classes are geared to the appropriate placement of our students based on their Spanish language abilities and goals. Students are evaluated at the beginning and end of each semester with an interview. The interview provides a functional perspective on the student's Spanish language abilities and helps identify areas of focus. With small class sizes, our instructors tailor their interactions and lessons to the levels of each student.


This course provides a fun, interactive experience for a student's first exposure to the Spanish language. The content for each unit is based on an authentic story, myth or legend from the Spanish-speaking culture.


These students can recognize general words and expressions related to themselves or their families; they have a minimal understanding but may not speak it.


Maintain and close simple face to face conversation on topics that are familiar or of personal interest. Can repeat back part of what someone has said to confirm mutual understanding. Describe, able to start a basic conversation.


Students can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously, almost effortlessly.


  • Small class sizes of no more than 3 students for an individualized and interactive learning experience

  • Lessons tailored to students' level

  • 30min classes, twice a week to build consistency and confidence

  • Skilled, experienced, and native Spanish-speaking teachers

  • Thematic, context-rich approach to teaching language and culture in a fun and engaging way


Students are accompanied by a "travel guide" in each class as they learn about different Latin American countries. Explore the wonder of language and culture with our amazing friends: Faustina, El Mariachi, El Cóndor, Ekeko, El Coki!

Mary, Mom

My daughter looks forward to her weekly Spanish class with SEPA Online. She loves her teacher and enjoys learning Spanish in a fun and interactive environment.

Daniela, Mom

My child's experience with SEPA has been wonderful! Even though he is shy, he tries to say a few words in Spanish at home, and I can see his confidence is growing. He enjoys learning about Latin American countries as he learns the language.

He also loves his teacher, Ms Susana.
