Perfect for all bilingual implementations for Pre-K through 8th grade, including models in two languages.

Learning is improved and enriched through useful lessons with Latin culture and literature.

Custom Data Profiles

Reports based on student progress provide a formative vision to guide intervention strategies and instructional decision making. They will always be informed and above all, this contributes to not sending evidence on these matters, as it will be MATI who sends the Progress Reports.

Hundreds of lesson plans, automated tools and flexible resources help educators customize instruction and support various teaching approaches.

Access

Families and guardians have 24-hour access, 7 days a week, to easy-to-use complementary home instruction and can monitor progress.
