Courses in Western’s French Department meet all the guidelines of the Ontario Curriculum. Our motto is, “Etre bilingue c’est un atout! - To be bilingual is a plus!” We offer Applied, Academic, Enriched, Gifted and University level courses to support and enhance language learning for everyone. Through committed and innovative language teaching, we develop students’ French language facility and comfort in the French speaking world. Learning a second language gives students new insights into their first language. It also enhances overall skills in learning, expands career opportunities, and promotes understanding among cultures. Western’s students are global citizens, Western’s students are multilingual students.
