Hector Olguin

Hector Olguin, is the COO of TalkBox.Mom. With his wife Adelaide, they created TalkBox.Mom to help other families start talking in and understanding foreign languages within days, like their family did as they traveled. Now parents who thought they could never learn a language are shocked that they’re talking with their children!

Create a LANGUAGE IMMERSION Homeschool—even if You Only Know English!

Want a foreign language to be a part of your homeschool? But your family is either stuck learning vocab words instead of immersing yourself in the language by talking in it together or the whole idea of learning a foreign language is super overwhelming? I grew up monolingual and learned to conjugate verbs in high school Spanish but could barely put a sentence together without loads of anxiety. Now, my family has learned multiple languages together and have transformed our homeschool day into a full immersion experience.

A Step-By-Step Plan for Creating Educational Vacations that your Kids don’t Hate or Forget

Want to bring your homeschooling alive by experiencing what you’re learning? But you’re worried the trip will be a waste of time and money because your kids won’t remember it like you want them to! Totally get it! After many years of traveling to foreign countries and around the United States, my kids are experts on the geography, history, culture, and language of places we travel. In this workshop, I’ll give you a step by step plan for getting your kids invested in your trip, helping them take ownership of what they’re learning, and documenting your trip after you get back in a way that has your kids remembering the academic goldmine you curated for them in your travels… instead of remembering that one restaurant you made them eat at and hated.
