French Immersion

French Immersion

At the DSBN, French Immersion starts in Grade 1. This program provides your child with opportunities to develop proficiency in Canada’s two official languages and to learn about other cultures. 

Students in the program take exactly the same subjects as the English Grade 1 program. They are introduced to the French language by learning the most common French words. An early start is important as developing minds can quickly absorb a second language. 

Early French Immersion students are more likely to reach an advanced level of French proficiency than students in any other program. It is important that families and students demonstrate motivation and commitment throughout the program.
