French as a Second Language Department

The French as a Second Language (FSL) program is designed to help students develop a lifelong ability to communicate with more people, increase cognitive ability, strengthen first language skills, have access to a greater number of career opportunities, and increase their appreciation of other people and their culture.

The FSL courses aim to provide students with the fundamental skills necessary to communicate in French, as well as encourage an appreciation of diverse francophone cultures. There is a focus on oral communication based on authentic language use – language that is meaningful and relevant to students’ real-life experiences and interests.
In Grade 9, students have the option to choose between the academic or applied stream. Students who continue their French studies until grade 12 are considered functionally bilingual and are prepared to study French at the university or college level. These students also receive a certificate of merit from our school.
