French as a Second Language Programs
Learning a second language enhances a student's overall learning skills, expands career opportunities and promotes understanding among cultures. The Toronto District School Board offers a variety of French As a Second Language Programs in both the elementary and secondary schools.
Core French is offered to all students for 40 minutes a day from Grades 4-8 and continues into secondary school from Grades 9-12.
There are two types of intensive French programs: French Immersion and Extended French. Both programs are designed to give students the opportunity to learn French, not simply as a language program but also through other subjects taught in French.
The TDSB has a parent organization who supports French As a Second Language programs. For more information about the French As a Second Language Advisory Committee (FSLAC) log onto www.tdsb.on.ca/fslac.
