English Language Learners in FSL Programs

Participation in FSL programs should reflect the diversity of the student population, including students with special education needs and students who are English language learners

Current research supports the concept that multilingualism has many benefits, such as facilitating English proficiency, improving career opportunities, and enhancing understanding and appreciation of global diversity. All students deserve equitable access to these potential benefits, regardless of their backgrounds. Decisions about the placement of students in an FSL program or course should be made on a case-by-case basis.

​The elementary and secondary FSL curriculum documents specifically address program considerations for English language learners’ participation and success in FSL programs. The Grade 9 Open course, FSF1O, introduced in 2014, addresses the need to provide appropriate curriculum for students who have little or no background in Core French. It is an introductory course for students who have not accumulated the minimum of 600 hours of elementary Core French instruction.​​​​​​ ​​​​​​
