Why study languages?

Students at St Patrick Catholic Secondary School are strongly encouraged to continue French throughout their four years of secondary education and even pick up a second or third international language as they explore various postsecondary paths and career choices. A student who embraces the study of languages acquires many more skills and opportunities for potential careers in a variety of sectors.


The focus of every course in the Moderns Department is to develop the written and oral skills necessary to become life-long language learners.​
