The best way of illustrating the success of our program is sharing what our students have to say . . .

Bonjour mon nom est Mathew and je veux te dire pourquoi je suis en immersion française. Hi my name is Mathew and I want to tell you why I’m in French Immersion . . . it’s because learning to speak French will open so many doors in the future! Speaking French can help to get a good job or be accepted into college or university. And, learning a second language is a lot of fun!

Salut, je m’appelle Angelique et je suis dans la cinquième annee de l’immersion de francais. Hi, my name is Angelique, and here’s why I enjoy French Immersion. When I started in Grade 4, I met a lot of new friends who also enjoy learning to speak, read and write in another language. We do fun learning activities, games and songs to help us learn. We even travel to French speaking areas of Canada for school trips to help to improve our French. I really enjoy French Immersion and know that you will, too.
