"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.

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.
