Learning another language should be a positive experience for all students. Motivating students to learn, and keeping lessons creative and exciting are the goals of the French program. The Manitoba Basic French Curriculum "Francais de Base" is used at all grade levels. At OLV, the French program starts in grade 3 and continues through to grade 8. Each grade will build from the previous one, starting with basic vocabulary and pronunciation to verb conjugation, writing simple sentences and having simple oral conversations. Through the French program, we hope that our students are exposed not only to another language but another culture as well.
