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, learners 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 learners with a distinct advantage in a number of careers, both in Canada and internationally.
FSL - NON-CREDIT PROGRAM
This program is designed to help learners improve their general French language skills in some or all of the four main skill areas (reading, writing, listening, and speaking). Learners enrolled in general FSL could have a wide range of learning goals, including improving their language for daily life, becoming job ready or pursuing further education. Courses are available at a range of Canadian Language Benchmarks standard. Evidence of earners’ progress is monitored and collected in PBLA (Portfolio Based Language Assessment). Part-time (day and evening) classes are being offered at St. Dunstan Catholic Language Learning Centre, 1525 Cuthbert Ave., In Mississauga and weekend classes at McLaughlin Village Centre, (McLaughlin & Ray Lawson) in Brampton.
Note: These classes are for adults only.
