Middle YEARS Spanish Program 

The MYP Spanish program is a three year program. Students are placed according to their previous instruction.  Spanish language is taught in a highly interactive environment. Class discussions  and group work are strategically designed to foster oral practice of the vocabulary and grammatical patterns. Projects, charts and visuals are used and created by students to provide repetition and mastery of key concepts. An intentional effort is made to promote a balanced development of the language in reading, writing, listening and speaking.  Cultural aspects are incorporated into each unit to foster curiosity about global understanding and promote the advantages of bilingualism.
