French Immersion

French Immersion is a second language program in which French is the language of instruction for a significant part of the school day. Several or all subjects, with the exception of English Language Arts, are taught in French. The program has a prescribed curricula set by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education, which are parallel to English language curricula.


Requirements for Bilingual Mention – French Immersion Programs

To meet the requirements for bilingual mention on the Transcript of Secondary Level Achievement, students are required to complete a minimum of 12 credits taken in French in addition to meeting the English program requirements with the exception of the English language arts area. 

Note: A minimum cumulative total of 4 credits taken in French is required for Grade 10, 8 credits for Grade 11, and 12 credits for Grade 12. 

The 12 courses necessary for bilingual mention must include three French language arts courses (Français Immersion 10, 20, 30). The other 9 credits can be obtained from courses in the remaining areas of study or electives that are taught in French.

French Immersion is currently offered to grades 9-12 students at Estevan Comprehensive School.
