Knowing how to speak, write and understand French is an important aspect of being a Canadian and a global citizen. Students familiar with French are better able to understand and appreciate French-speaking people from around the world, including their histories and cultures - which in turn may grant them additional travel and work opportunities throughout their lives.
By the end of French 30-3Y, students should be able to understand and express themselves in basic situations (provided the language they encounter is clear and based on familiar topics and structures) and to use the cultural and strategic knowledge they have gained to sustain their communication.
All French classes are worth five credits. Students coming from a K-9 French Immersion program should contact the MCHS French teacher for placement information.
