French
at the KPDSB!

What does French Language Programming look like up here?

  • In addition to Core French programming, we also offer French Immersion and Extended French in some of our schools. Our French as a Second Language (FSL) programs continue to grow every year.
  • We maintain a partnership with the Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF) centre, so that our students can continue to participate in their language certification program.
  • In addition to our students’ learning, we continue to provide professional learning opportunities for our FSL educators to further develop effective instructional practices, and a growing number of our teachers have become DELF certified.
  • Our use of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) encourages a natural development of language and is based on student interest and authentic learning. This approach has also allowed educators to use experiential learning to enhance and maximize French language acquisition.
  • We offer state of the art professional learning to our educators with the continued support of distinguished guests to the Board. These opportunities include face-to-face professional learning sessions with reknowned presenters from across the province.
  • Our French Language mentorship program is an amazing experience that brings you together with a very supportive, close-knit group of other French teachers within our Board.
