The Early Start courses for Kindergarten to Grade 3 aim to provide students with an exposure to the French language and its cultures. French is used as the language of instruction; students’ emerging language skills are developed through themes and active participation in learning situations based on their interest and levels of cognitive development. Simple language structures are used so that the students can express their preferences, that is, their likes and dislikes. The learning of French is real, multi-sensory and fun.

The goal of the French Communication and Culture courses for Grades 4 to 12, is to enable students to communicate in the French language and to appreciate francophone cultures. The course focuses on authentic communication, based on the students’ interest and experiences. The value of learning about other languages and cultures is fostered. Teaching methodology follows the cycle of speaking-reading-writing, with a particular emphasis on oral communication.
