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.
