The study of French is an important part of the secondary school curriculum. French is not
only one of Canada’s two official languages, but is also widely used around the world.
Knowledge of a second language is valuable for a number of reasons. Through learning a second
language, students can strengthen their first-language skills and enhance their critical and
creative thinking abilities; they also tend to become more tolerant and respectful of other cultures.
In addition, the ability to communicate in another language provides students with a
distinct advantage in a number of careers, both in Canada and internationally.
