The Benefit of Biliteracy
Here at Imagine Learning, we understand that biliteracy opens doors of opportunity for students. Imagine Español’s varied activities help students develop in the four domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. This means that students have the opportunity to not only become bilingual, but biliterate as well.

Authentic, Research-based Pedagogy
Imagine Español is uniquely crafted to address the specific features of the Spanish language (for example, letter-sound instruction, syllable awareness, and transparent orthography). And while many Spanish-language software programs are literal translations of original English versions, Imagine Español features culturally responsive content specifically designed for young children learning to read Spanish.
- Direct instruction and contextualized practice
- Highly engaging and motivating content
- Not an English translation

A Rich Cultural Experience
Authentic music and art help students connect to strong cultural traditions. While standard Spanish is used for instruction, multiple accents are strategically used to expose students to the nuanced differences in the Spanish-speaking world. By highlighting the cultural and linguistic richness of Spanish-speaking countries, Imagine Español provides a more meaningful educational experience to students.
