At Harrow, our students receive Basic French instruction beginning in grade 4. The students have three thirty-five minute classes per cycle in a dedicated French classroom with our French teacher, Mme Chernetz. The students also have access to the computer lab to work on projects and presentations, as well as explore approved websites to further their language learning.
Some of the themes covered during the 3 years of French classes are:
- greetings/useful expressions
The students have the opportunity to visit the Festival du Voyageur to use their language skills in an authentic setting. This outing helps them understand the importance of French culture in Manitoba.
At Harrow, the students are fortunate to have a technology-rich learning environment. The French classroom is equipped with a SmartBoard and computers. Laptops, iPads, and cameras are also available for student use.
The purpose of the Basic French curriculum is to encourage the learning of French as a means of communication and to make it an integral part of the student's overall education. This curriculum is not designed to make students bilingual.
