Parents do not need to be experts in the Spanish language to follow a homeschool Spanish curriculum with their child. To help children learn Spanish, it is more important for homeschooling parents to know what they don't know and be willing to learn and to be able to follow the instructions in parents' guides. Some states require that parents have a high school diploma. A few ask that parents have a college degree. However, no piece of paper is as important as parents' commitment and enthusiasm.
