Learning French Grades 1 - 12
Primary French (Grades 1 to 3)
We are one of only a few boards in Ontario that offers a comprehensive French as a Second Language (FSL)program for students in Grades 1 to 3. Your child will receive 60 hours of French language instruction each year. This gives our students a clear head-start in acquiring French as second language
Junior and Intermediate (Grades 4 to 8)
Every year, students will progress in their French language learning. The focus will continue to be oral communication with the introduction of reading and writing. By Grades 7 and 8 every student will receive on average 40 minutes of French language instruction each day. This will provide your child with a solid foundation to pursue French as a second language throughout high school.
French in High School
With a solid oral language base after eight years at the elementary level, our high school students are ready to refine their abilities in more specific courses.Students have the options of choosing the right stream for them(applied, academic) and to continue their French learning right through to grade 12.
