Spanish in the Wild
Ready to take your Spanish learning outside?
Spanish in the Wild is the only nature based Spanish homeschool curriculum of its kind.
Spanish nature study for families and their children ages 5+ (even teens!)
As children get older, our approach to teaching language often shifts from immersion and play, to grammar focused and product driven curriculum.
We forget to let kids explore and experience the language with hands-on activities, and confine them to desks with worksheets and verb charts.
And i'm here to change that.
Your child doesn't fit into one box, your Spanish courses shouldn't either.
A Spanish course that is as dynamic as your child! Spanish in the Wild is your chance to reclaim the wonder of language learning at home. With lessons that weave science, art, movement and literature together, this course creates a dynamic language learning experience for everyone to enjoy.

Who am I?
I’m Naomi Noyes. A Spanish teacher, twin mamá, forest school educator, and lover of all things nature. Seeing families teach their kids Spanish at home fires me up. I believe in outside-the-box language education that gets children off a screen and into the natural world.
So, I got to work applying my near-decade’s-worth of Spanish teaching experience, and created engaging online Spanish courses for families who want a hands-on curriculum to help them take their language learning outside.
About our illustrator
Matthew Graham, Hawk & Hand, is a Connecticut-based artist. He went to school for fine arts with a focus in illustration. Growing up he found wildlife was always his biggest source of inspiration, especially birds. Specifically, raptors. “The colors, patterns and grace these creatures possess are nothing short of a gifts to humans”.Matthew is a father of two beautiful boys who keep him on his toes at all times, but its his families adventures in nature that breathe life into his work. His main mediums are graphite and ink, he then transfers the hand drawn pieces to a digital format for color.
NATURE IS CALLING, IT'S TIME TO TAKE YOUR SPANISH INTO THE WILD
The benefits of language learning are endless: greater cognitive functioning, improved problem solving skills, better attention span, a growing confidence in one’s own abilities…the list goes on and on. Yet, even in the face of all of these measured, scientific studies on the benefits of bilingualism, there is a greater payoff even still when learning Spanish at home, and that is connection. Language learning is all about connecting more to ourselves, to each other, and to the world around us. Spanish in the Wild is so much more than a course or curriculum, it is a roadmap to connecting more as a family with nature at the heart of all we do.
This isn’t just about learning Spanish or studying nature at home, it is about reclaiming childhood and wonder for our children. It is about slowing down together, finding magic in ordinary moments, and cultivating a love of learning to last a lifetime.
This course is for families with children ages 5+ (even teens!) who want to bring their love of Spanish together with a love of nature. This curriculum is perfect for any family that loves to learn together; whether you homeschool full time, or just spend a few hours each week studying side by side, this course works for every learning style. Most importantly, this course is for families that want to spend more time exploring together while working to bring Spanish into every moment outside.
Absolutely not! Though many topics in this course focus on nature found in the northern hemisphere, this course can easily be adapted to meet the environment where you live. Whether that is a large city with bits of nature woven in, a hot and arid place, or a cool damp forest – this course and each lesson can adapt to fit your environment. Also, just because you don’t necessarily see the same animals or plants around your home, doesn’t mean they aren’t fun to learn about! You can use this course as a jumping off point to learn more about what you do have growing right outside your home.
This course is designed to fit many different learning styles for every home! You can keep your learning primarily online with the course platform, or you can print out the entire curriculum with a digital PDF download. Each lesson includes QR codes to keep your audio recordings easily accessible. This course is made to work for you. You can print as much or as little as you would like.
Absolutely! This will help you learn Spanish through fun hands-on activities and immersion, right alongside your children. You will get audio pronunciation guides with each lesson from native Spanish speakers so you can feel confident in your language learning and usage. Keep in mind – you may want to grab our supplemental Spanish workbook for kids to help cover basics like colors, numbers, and other foundational Spanish lessons since they are not covered in this course specifically.
Yes! This course is perfect for bilingual families and it is a great way to bring nature study into your home while supporting your language goals for your children. Each lesson and activity will give you new nature vocabulary words, poems and songs to use, and you can adjust the level of Spanish used to fit your family and your children’s knowledge.
