In December of 2019 we piloted our first Spanish all-access library and it was a hit with teachers and parents alike.
Then to support distance learning at the outset of COVID-19 we made that library free and have been working around the clock to get version 2.0 ready.
We're close. . .
That's why we're pre-selling access to the growing library starting today! While many of the printable lessons and resources are still being finalized, your (super discounted) subscription will get you access to:
- 90+ downloadable MP3s of our learning songs & instrumentals (a $110 value)
- 90+ ad-free music videos + karaoke versions to view and share online (a $250 value)
- Printable lyrics in Spanish & English for all of the songs (a $45 value)
- A searchable index of the library to find the perfect video for the topic you're teaching

“Dear Basho! We finished your whole video curriculum! Thank you, thank you so much for making your series free to our family during this time. My girls loved it. This was their first time ever studying a language and you did a fabulous job introducing it. I can't say thank you enough. They are so excited about everything they learned and want to continue learning. What should we do next? We consider you our Spanish teacher :) ”
“I love Basho's videos because they are educational, fun, catchy, upbeat, and positive. The students always love listening to the songs because they're able to learn all the important basics of the Spanish language. They're always a fun addition to every lesson and it gets the kids up and moving which is super important in middle school. ”
“Our whole family enjoys listening to BASHO & FRIENDS. It’s something we can do together and I catch my son reciting lyrics all the time. He’s only 2 years old but every time one of Basho’s songs comes on, he proclaims “Basho!” like we’re on an episode of the game show “Name That Tune.” We can all sing along together and it’s refreshing to find some kids tunes that are educational AND adults can actually enjoy.”
“My pre-school aged kids absolutely love Basho and Friends! They listen to both the English and Spanish CD on repeat in the car, and always request to watch videos and songs on his YouTube channel. I am amazed at how much foreign language they have picked up. They are so inquisitive at this age, it’s the perfect time to expose them to other languages. The songs are so catchy and fun, we sing them constantly in our “Casa Loca”!”
We know there are many deserving kids that don't have adequate access to the internet, and many parents that would like for their kids to spend less time online rather than more. We're developing workbooks and offline resources to meet those demands.
While Spanish is the second-most widely spoken language in the world, we love all languages equally and aim to be the most fun place to learn them all. Next up are French, Chinese, and English (late 2020 or early 2021) with others close behind. Subscriber input will influence what comes next!
We're working on the design and flow to ensure our content is culturally responsive, simple, fun, and translateable for learners across the world. The work is non-trivial and we're making great progress. We will roll out the new designs iteratively as they're complete.
