PRESS RELEASE — On June 12, the American Financial Services Education Foundation (AFSAEF) launched the Spanish language version of its free online personal finance course, MoneySKILL.
“The Hispanic population in the United States continues to grow and it’s important that we reach them with helpful financial literacy tools like MoneySKILL en Español,” said Rhonda Ashburn, executive director of the AFSAEF.
For many years, MoneySKILL has educated users on the basic understanding of money management fundamentals. In fact, over 850,000 users have benefited from this comprehensive yet customizable program. The mobile friendly course includes the content areas of income, expenses, saving and investing, credit, and insurance. And, just recently, MoneySKILL added new content, in the area of vehicle financing, as well as recreated the data charts within the program.
MoneySKILL, created for students, is designed to be used as all or part of a course in economics, business, math, or wherever personal finances are taught. Students can access all 37 modules in the classroom, at home, or wherever an Internet connection is available. Built-in quizzes test students’ grasp of each concept. Both the curriculum and its underlying technology infrastructure are updated regularly.
Educators interested in using MoneySKILL can register to access the curriculum at www.moneyskill.org or www.moneyskill.org/espanol. Parents, non-profit organizations and employers, as well as AFSA members are also encouraged to check out MoneySKILL in both Spanish and English.1 - Reader Likes This Post
