First of all we are a bilingual country, which means we have two official languages, French and English.

Students across Canada all have the opportunity to learn French. Students as far north as Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories are offered intense French immersion programs from very early grades up to grade 12.

I feel that having core French available to students in SNCS and HLPS would be appropriate. Of course, not all students would have to take it. Only students who are interested, which would make it more successful.

Research shows that if you know more than one language that you can learn another language far more easily. We live in a world surrounded by different people and cultures, and different languages. We need to be able to communicate. It also improves our job opportunities in a global economy.

The opportunities to learning French are endless.
