For Spanish I Students

UPDATE: Two of our Spanish 1 classes (Mondays at 3:30 PM EST and Thursdays at 7:30 PM EST) are full. One Spanish 1 class (Mondays at 12:30 PM EST) still has room. Spanish 2 still has room as well. 

To register, please go here.

Thinking about using EP’s Spanish 1 or Spanish 2 courses this year for your middle or high school student? Consider signing up for our Spanish Live classes to give your student live practice actually using the material he or she is learning in the course.

These classes meet LIVE, in a virtual classroom, one hour per week during the school year. They are an optional supplement to EP’s free online Spanish courses. Students receive structured practice in speaking and understanding Spanish as they interact with each other and with an experienced teacher fluent in Spanish.

The live classes cost $99 per student for the entire school year, and discounts are available for multiple students in the same family. Classes are starting in early September, so register now to get your student ready. Classes are starting soon!

Registration will be closed when the classes are full. For more information, please see our Language Live page. If you have further questions, please write to David Giles at eplanguagelive@gmail.com. Hope to see you in class!

Growing Pains

I’m sorry that I wasn’t prepared for the surge of new people starting My EP Assignments this week. I’m wet behind the ears with a lot of this stuff. At first we were lumping all reports of problems together, but now we’re starting to sift through them and seeing that the one fix we applied earlier in the week wasn’t covering all of it.

We increased our capacity in one area but realized there’s yet another we need to work on. To that end, we will be moving to another server tonight it looks like. That will help with anyone getting DNS server not found messages.

We won’t have that switched before tonight, so if you can hold off on school until later in the afternoon, it would ease our load. This week it seemed around 11AM people start having trouble with getting that error about a DNS server not being found. It just means traffic is too heavy at that time. That’s what will be fixed tonight.

It shouldn’t be asking you to re-log in, only after you have closed the browser page and come back in fresh, not in the middle of working on the site. Also, you shouldn’t be having a Student 1 appear mysteriously. Those are things you can let us know about if they persist. We’re working on figuring them out.

My EP is supposed to make it Easier Peasier for you, so we’re doing all we can to get this going smoothly.

New Books Released

Math 6 – Step 2 – Biology – Ancient History Theme

Step 2 (Math 6)

step-2-cover-workbook-front-small      step-2-cover-parents-front-small

The Workbook is the offline course. There are no printables for Step 2. There are many optional worksheets in Step 2 if you wanted them, so if you are someone who wants those, consider getting the Workbook to have those handy, as well as extra practice for every lesson.

The lessons for this book are in the Workbook. The answer key is in the store on the Math page. The Parent’s Guide has the images for the student worksheets with their answers filled in and helps for getting through the lessons, how to approach questions, etc. This is just like the Math 5 – Step 1 book.

This is typically for our 6th and 7th graders.

Biology and Ancient History Theme

These can be found in the store and at in the top section on their respective course pages. These are the worksheets used in the online courses. There are no offline versions of these courses. These are just to save you from printing out 100+ pages. The Ancient History Theme printables book includes the few music printables that are in that theme. There are no art printables in this theme.
