Toronto Catholic District School Board

French as a Second Language





French class 6.jpg


The FSL programs offered at SJCS are Core French and Extended French. These programs provide students with challenging and varied opportunities to develop their French-language knowledge and skills. The content of each course is organized into four interrelated strands: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The aim of the French program is to provide students with fundamental communication skills in French and an understanding of the nature of the language and its culture. Students learn by engaging in communicative language activities as well as studying and critically analyzing short stories, novels, plays, current affairs, movies, news clips and radio clips. The French program is also designed to promote intercultural awareness. Students learn about the French language and francophone cultures in North America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

Upon graduation, a student is granted a Core French Certificate of the Toronto Catholic District School Board if she has successfully completed the 4 credits in Core French from grades 9-12. 

Upon graduation, a student is granted an Extended French Certificate of the Toronto Catholic District School Board if she has successfully completed 4 credits of Extended French and 3 credits of Religion taught in French, in high school.
