Language support in MyPath

The MyPath Suite offers students 3 language-support tools:

  • The Spanish Language setting allows students to receive the K-5 math and science navigation interface and lessons entirely in Spanish. Instead of being translated from English, these lessons were developed in Spanish with native Spanish-speakers in mind to provide an authentic experience for Spanish-speaking students. The language setting provides valuable assistance for students whose primary language is Spanish and is also suitable for Dual Language students. We recommend enabling this setting for newcomer students with limited English.
  • The language translation tool translates the words on the page into over 60 languages. It works for both instructional content (lessons) and the MyPath assessments.
  • Text-to-speech is an audio feature that reads the words out loud when students highlight the text and then hit Play.

All of the language features must be enabled by an educator before students can access them in-product.  The features are enabled on a student-by-student, product-by-product basis (MyPath Math, MyPath Reading, Imagine Science Corner, and Imagine Purpose). 

The table below summarizes each language support.
