Early French Immersion
What is Early French Immersion?
Begins in Kindergarten or Grade 1 and is intended to continue through Grade 12.
Is based on research that young children learn languages more easily than older learners.
Time allocations for French language instruction are as follows:
Kindergarten 100% of the time
Grades 1-6 75-80%
Grades 7-12 50-80%
The program is designed for students of parents whose heritage is something other than French.
