Core French 

Core French is mandatory from Grades 4 to 8 for all students in English-language elementary schools. 

In an Extended French program, French must be the language of instruction for a minimum of 25 per cent of the total instructional time at every grade level of the program and provide a minimum of 1260 hours of instruction in French by the end of Grade 8

The program must include the study of French as a second language and the study of at least one other subject taught in French. That subject must be selected from the following: the arts, social studies (Grades 1 to 6) or history and geography (Grades 7 and 8), mathematics, science and technology, and health and physical education. 

French Immersion

In a French Immersion program, French must be the language of instruction for a minimum of 50 per cent of the total instructional time at every grade level of the program and provide a minimum of 3800 hours of instruction in French by the end of Grade 8. French Immersion programs must include the study of French as a second language and the study of at least two other subjects taught in French. These two subjects must be selected from the following: the arts, social studies (Grades 1 to 6) or history and geography (Grades 7 and 8), mathematics, science and technology, and health and physical education. Although the French Immersion curriculum is written for a Grade 1 start, many immersion programs starting in Grade 1 provide instruction in French in all subjects (i.e., for 100 per cent of total instructional time) until Grade 3 or 4, when students begin to study English.5 Instruction in English may then be gradually extended to include other subjects. By the end of Grade 8, students may receive up to 50 per cent of their instruction in English.

How can our French tutors help?

Below are some areas that our math tutors can help the students in:

1. French Homework help

  • Further explanation or clarification of concepts from school

  • Go through practice questions with students to ensure the concepts are well understood and the student can do it on his/her own when the tutor isn’t there

  • Proof reading, Essay correction - sentence structure, style

2. Learn advanced material or move ahead of class

This is a popular approach if the student is keen on getting higher marks in school. The idea is to learn the material before the teacher at school talks about it so that when the concepts are brought up again in class, the student will understand it very well since he/she is looking at it the second time - The student will need to have an outline of the course and knows which chapter will be taught next. Sometimes this will require the help of the parent to reach out to the teacher if this information is not readily available.

3. French reading, writing, speaking and listen. The tutor is fluent in French and will practice all skills with the student during the tutoring session
