French Immersion is a highly successful approach to second-language learning. It is an effective way for your child to become fluent in a second language while achieving all of the objectives of the regular school program.
French Immersion is designed specifically for children whose first language is not French. It is open to all children of the appropriate age. We use a gentle approach to develop the child's language, and there is no expectation that parents understand or speak French at home. Learning another language can help your child to:
- Improve listening skills
- Increase cognitive abilities, creating a more flexible thinker
- Enhance communications skills in his/her first language
- Improve overall school performance
- Gain many other proven benefits!
In the 2016-17 school year, Morinville Public School will offer French Immersion from Kindergarten to Grade 4.
