Supplementing an Extended French Program

One Child, Two Languages, Many Opportunites

Extra-curricular use of French is important if students are to expand their vocabulary beyond that involved in academic work. Activities such as drama, music, sports and excursions can be initiated within the school and may be completed after school hours. These activities provide excellent opportunities for improving fluency and learning everyday, non-academic French.

The learning of a second language is in itself an excellent pursuit, not least because it develops an appreciation of the act of communicating with others, the subtleties that must be expressed in words, the importance of listening.


–Dr. Andre Obadia, Simon Fraser University.
