Description: Live class instruction is delivered primarily in Spanish. Students practice conversational Spanish with increasing complexity, including sharing their personal testimony in Spanish, and have dedicated time each week for practice conversations with peers. Students study advanced grammar, such as past participles, future perfect verb tenses, and pluperfect. Students read an adaptation of Don Quixote (one of the most famous Spanish language novels), several short stories, and poetry in Spanish. They also listen to famous Spanish music, and are introduced to humor in Hispanic culture.

    Students should have completed Spanish 2 or an equivalent course. Students should be able to read and write at the 11th grade level. We offer a Spanish Placement Assessment to help families determine where students fit in the Academy Spanish program. The ultimate decision rests with parents. 

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in Spanish 3?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

  • What if I have a schedule conflict with listed Spanish 3 class times?

    All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
