Late French Immersion

Late Immersion begins in Grade 6 and is an intensive and effective way for students to learn and study the French language and culture while following the full provincial curriculum.

It is best suited for those students in grade 5 who:

  • enjoy Core French,
  • have demonstrated a sound development in English Language Arts,
  • seek an academic challenge

English may be used at the outset to establish routines, but after this, English is used only if necessary in exceptional circumstances. Because the Late Immersion program is more intensive than the Early Immersion program, a high level of student commitment and motivation is required.
