Intensive Core French Program

Intensive Core French is a second language teaching approach in which French is taught intensively for most of the day during five months of the Grade 6 year. The students in the program receive about 80% of their instruction in French during the first half of the year and 20% during the second half; the rest of the curriculum (except for Mathematics) is “compressed” into the second half of the year.
