Leading Change in Language Learning
Founded in 1988
Our mission is to help students learn Spanish they can use in real-life situations. And we do it by creating engaging and meaningful content that sparks their curiosity and motivates them to learn. We strongly believe that educators play a key role in language learning, and part of our mission is to support them and give them opportunities for professional development.
Building cross-cultural connections
We love the Spanish language—in all its varieties—and the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Our books display a rich, open, and modern understanding of this world and these cultures. They move students away from stereotypes and teach them to think critically, both inside and outside of the classroom.
These are our values
Having them is not enough. We live them
Because everyone on the Difusión team has a background in education and works closely with educators and students, our commitment goes far beyond our daily work. We understand the needs of educators and students and we are passionate about looking for solutions and tools to help them succeed.
We are committed to providing high-quality print and digital content and offering affordable prices to all who want to learn a language. We guarantee lower prices for high-quality content and simple and easy-to-use technology.
We view languages as tools for communication and action. To learn a language and build authentic communicative competency, students need a realistic context, a true need to communicate, a focus on meaning, and the right linguistic resources. And that’s what we provide in our educational materials.
Our educational materials focus on the most current pedagogical methodology. We work hard to create materials that follow the ACTFL Guidelines for Proficiency, include Can-Do statements, and assimilate the 5 Cs. Our digital resources focus on original and authentic content via a simple and easy-to-use platform.
We see educators from around the world as our partners, and the core of our mission is to support them by providing professional development opportunities, high-quality documents and activities, and instructor resources in an easily accessible format.
Our content is created to help students fully learn Spanish so they can communicate and interact with other communities and cultures, both in the United States and abroad, either in professional or personal contexts. We help students become global citizens by developing their intercultural and critical thinking skills.
