Welcome to the Spanish Homepage
HPMS is an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program School. We offer Spanish at all grade levels.
Students begin studying a language (Spanish, French, or Chinese) in MYP 1. This course is for students who have not had an in-depth language class previously. In Exploratory Spanish, we cover Units 1 and 2 in the ¡Qué Chévere! text. The focus is on meeting people, asking and answering questions and talking about school. This course meets every other day for a full year. It is the equivalent of 1 semester of Spanish.
The next level is Level 1a. Students meet every other day for a full year, again, the equivalent of 1 semester of study using the ¡Qué Chévere! text. Students cover Units 3, 4, and 5: "In The City," "Family & Friends," & "Daily routines and activities."
The final level is Level 1b. Students also meet every other day for a full year, the equivalent of 1 semester of Spanish using the ¡Qué Chévere! text. The units of study are: "My House," "Pastimes," & "Daily routines" in the past tense.
Students must have a charged ipad for class. It is also recommended for students and family to check Schoology for updates on daily lesson information, grades and assignments.
