    ¡Bienvenidos¡-

    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.
