Upcoming Events

French Second Language Week is an annual celebration of second language learning that will be held from February 3-7, 2014.  This year’s theme is “French - A Gift for Life”. 

French is an official language in more than 30 countries. There are over 220 million French speakers worldwide. Bilingual employees are continually sought to work with multinational corporations working in or with these countries.  Learning a second language, regardless of technological advances, continues to be as important as ever. Research over the past 30 years tells us that there are many benefits to students learning a second language:

  • Students fluent in two languages score higher in verbal and non-verbal intelligence; 
  • They are better at divergent thinking tasks;
  • They have higher test scores in reading, language and math;
  • A second language education enhances the first language skills in the areas of reading, vocabulary, and communication; and
  • Language learners have superior cross-cultural skills, adapt better to varying cultural contexts and display greater cultural sensitivity.

The Light of Christ Catholic School Division offers a variety of French Language Programming. Please contact the Principal for more information regarding French Language programming in the Light of Christ Catholic School Division.
