ORDER CONFIRMATION (You may print this page for your records):
Thank you very much for your Excelerate SPANISH purchase. As a homeschool mom myself, I understand the significance of your investment in your curricula. I appreciate your business very much!
Here are a few things you need to know about your Excelerate SPANISH order:
1. Orders are typically shipped out within one to two business days. I use USPS Media Mail, a cost-effective method that allows me to offer you FREE shipping. Media Mail can take a tad bit longer than Priority, but if you live within the Continental United States, you can expect to receive your package within a week or so (often sooner!) This does not apply to bulk orders.
2. Your lesson videos on DVD should play on any regular DVD player. If you should need or choose to view them on a computer, you will just need to download a free media player. Here is one viable option: http://www.videolan.org/index.html
3. Excelerate SPANISH was created by a former high school Spanish teacher (me!) to meet the needs of high school students who wish to earn credit on their high school transcript. When you flip through the lesson book, you’ll notice immediately that it is extremely content-rich. Students are taught to use complete sentences from the very first lesson. However, you will see multiple ages represented in the lesson videos. Because these lessons are taught using gestures, action sequences, skits, and stories, even younger children are able to experience success! Please be assured that your high school student will learn enough to fulfill (even exceed) the expectations for students in Spanish I.
4. I hope you’ll do the gestures and act out the action sequences and skits… I really believe in the mind-body connection and the help it gives students as they internalize and retain information!
5. ALL of the Excelerate SPANISH lessons have been uploaded to the Quizlet website by other users of the program! Your students will really enjoy the activities.

Feel free to contact me if I can answer any questions for you! I understand the need to prepare students for college and to award high school credit. I have graduated two students from my own homeschool, both of whom have gone on to college and excelled. My daughter is a French major! 🙂 Studying Latin and Spanish in our homeschool ignited a passion for foreign languages that has truly changed her life.
Thanks again, and have a wonderful school year!
