French as a Second Language K-12

Vision and Goals for FSL

In order to achieve the goals of the elementary and secondary FSL curriculum, students need to:

  • acquire a strong oral foundation in the French language and focus on communicating in French;
  • understand the value of learning another language;
  • develop the skills needed to strengthen traits of resilience and to secure a sense of self, through opportunities to learn adaptive, management, and coping skills, to practise communication skills, to build relationships and interact positively with others, and to use critical and creative thinking processes.

Core

Extended

Immersion

Core French is mandatory from Grades 4 to 8 for all students in English-language elementary schools. Students entering Grade 4 must receive French instruction in every year from Grade 4 to Grade 8 and must have accumulated a minimum of 600 hours of French instruction by the end of Grade 8.

In an Extended French program, French must be the language of instruction for a minimum of 25 per cent of the total instructional time at every grade level of the program and provide a minimum of 1260 hours of instruction in French by the end of Grade 8. The program must include the study of French as a second language and the study of at least one other subject taught in French.

In a French Immersion program, French must be the language of instruction for a minimum of 50 per cent of the total instructional time at every grade level of the program and provide a minimum of 3800 hours of instruction in French by the end of Grade 8. French Immersion programs must include the study of French as a second language and the study of at least two other subjects taught in French.

Core French is offered beginning in Grade 4 at all elementary schools.

Extended French is offered beginning in Grade 5 at York River Public School.

French Immersion is offered beginning in Grade 4 at Bayside Public School, Harry J. Clarke Public School and Queen Elizabeth School, Picton.
