​Modern Languages

The study of French is an important part of the secondary school curriculum. French is not

only one of Canada's two official languages, but is also widely used around the world.

Knowledge of a second language is valuable for a number of reasons. Through learning a second

language, students can strengthen their first-language skills and enhance their critical and

creative thinking abilities; they also tend to become more tolerant and respectful of other cultures.

In addition, the ability to communicate in another language provides students with a distinct advantage in a number of careers, both in Canada and internationally.


The aim of the Modern Languages Department is to prepare students to

perform effectively in the challenging world they will face by providing them with the skills

they will need to communicate in second language and to make the curriculum relevant to students'

lives, knowledge and skills are taught in contexts that reflect their interests and experiences.

Students will be able to choose from courses that lead to study at the postsecondary

level or to the workplace, depending on their individual interests, strengths, and aspirations.
