French Immersion

Golden Secondary offers instruction in French in two formats:  French as a Second Language and Late French Immersion.

Communication is the fundamental goal of the French as a Second Language program. Oral and written activities provide opportunities for true communication about teen subjects. 

In this program, students share real information while expressing themselves in French. We use videos, comic strips, plays, and language monitors as well as a variety of other resources. We focus on topics of interest incuding food, friendship and fashion to create a link between what is taught in the classroom and daily life.  On occasion, opportunities to travel to a French-speaking area are provided through the French Department. 


The Late French Immersion program begins in Golden at Lady Grey Elementary in grade 4. Students at the elementary school study all subjects in French. In grade 8, students begin to study course material in English while still taking FRAL, PHE and electives in French.
