The Key to Great Language Resources Within Your Classroom Budget

One obstacle teachers face when looking for new classroom resources is their budget. They might find really great programs and services they would like to utilize, but the cost of the resource and their school’s budget can hinder them from taking the next step. This explanation is the reason many teachers give to our sales staff for not subscribing to SCOLA. However, many school systems are not aware that we have a solution that can benefit your entire community!

When a cable system starts airing a SCOLA channel, the school district automatically becomes an affiliate of SCOLA, at no cost to the school! Not only is it free for the school, but it also only costs the cable channel a single penny per month per subscriber!

Not only will the community get access to international news broadcasts, your school district gets to choose which beneficial SCOLA service is used in foreign language classrooms.

Do you want to save time preparing foreign language lessons?

Choose Insta-Class and have access to ready-to-use “instant” multi-media language lessons produced by SCOLA language experts from around the world.

Attention Language Learners!

Attention language learners!

Lower level lessons have been added to our Insta-Class service in the following languages: Spanish-South American, Portuguese, French, and German. Swahili language lessons for beginners are coming soon.

Insta-Class contains ready-to-use “instant” multi-media language lessons produced by SCOLA language experts from around the world. The multi-genre lessons for classroom and individual use are based on actual foreign content and will open in a separate window once chosen. Each lesson will contain a video clip and transcript, translation, a vocabulary list and a quiz to test the users comprehension.

Although some SCOLA services target the more experienced linguist, these new lessons are tailored specifically to beginners. The new level was added to an already impressive list of lessons for advanced, superior, and intermediate learners in over 50 languages.

The 14,000+ lessons on Insta-Class are searchable by Year, Level, Language, Country and Topical Category makes it easy to find exactly what you need.

The convenient lessons benefit classes and independent language learners by saving time and integrating authentic resources. Spanish instructor John White says “I use Insta-Class because what you are seeing is authentic news. Sometimes I want my students to have the visual cues provided in TV programming so that they are immersed in the language but then they also have the actual text being said and the translation.”  You don’t have to take it from us though, try out Insta-Class yourself with this sample or contact us today for your free trial!
