Money & Monedas: Let’s Talk NGPF Spanish Materials!

Did you know that 1 in 4 students in the United States are Hispanic according to the U.S. Census Bureau? Since 2015, we have been focused on offering translated versions of many activities and resources as part of our goal to make financial education as accessible and inclusive as possible.

Since we began translating NGPF Resources into Spanish, 3 million Latinx students have attended schools where teachers use our personal finance resources. We know that many ELL students are using the Spanish resources alongside their peers in the personal finance classroom. NGPF is committed to helping all students! 

How can I use NGPF in Spanish as a teacher with Spanish-speaking ELL students?

The NGPF Spanish directory lists all of our Spanish materials!


  • Activities across NGPF’s 12+ personal finance units
  • All activities in the 9-Week Course and Semester Course lessons
  • All assessments for the Semester Course, including Diagnostic, Midterm, Final, and Unit Exams!

What’s coming next?

  • More arcade games!

  • Financial Algebra in Spanish!

When translating resources, NGPF takes great care to make sure that our translations offer an opportunity for the student to understand personal finance in the United States.  There are over 62 million Hispanics living in the U.S. and we’re committed to personal finance education, one student at a time.
