Language Accommodation

ClassHero allows you to change the language in which the audio narration communicates with students, but leaves the text in English. In this way, students can relate the audio and text to understand better. It can accommodate for students that are more comfortable with Spanish, Russian, French, German, Italian, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean. 

Just like every other feature within ClassHero, this function can be customized individually for each student. You can change the audio narration's language for individual students or the class as a whole.

Khan Academy For Spanish Speakers

ClassHero occasionally uses Khan Academy to help student's practice sessions. If you change the narration language to Spanish for a student or to your class, then Khan Academy videos will also be displayed in Spanish. This feature only works for Spanish speaking students.
