Early French Immersion offers students the opportunity to learn French through other subject areas and to enhance their skills in an intensive program. Children receive all or most of their instruction in French from a teacher who speaks the language fluently. While Senior Kindergarten and Grade 1 students receive no formal instruction in English, there is a gradual increase in English instruction between Grades 2 and 8. By Grade 8, 50 per cent of the students' instruction is in English.
