Extended French​ – Français intensif

The Extended French Program is a continuation of the elementary Extended French Program, Grades 5-8.  Students are taught French as a subject, and French serves as the language of instruction in at least one other subject.  At the secondary level, there are academic courses in Extended French in Grades 9 and 10, and university preparation courses in Grades 11 and 12.


Throughout the Extended French Program, students learn:


ü  to use French to communicate and interact effectively in a variety of social settings;

ü  about Canada, its two official languages, and other cultures;

ü  to appreciate and acknowledge the interconnectedness and interdependence of the global community;

ü  to be responsible for their own learning, as they work independently and in groups;

ü  to use effective language learning strategies;

ü  to become life-long language learners for personal growth and for active participation as world citizens
