French Language Arts 10-1, 20-1, 30-1/30-2
Immersion level French Language Arts is a requirement for all students enrolled in the French immersion program at ESBCHS. This course sequence stresses listening, speaking, reading and writing on an equal basis.
FLA 30-1 is a diploma course where students will write a government exam for 30% of their mark. Students will be have the opportunity to challenge French as a Second Language (FSL) at all grade levels.
New this year to ESBCHS is FLA 30-2, which follows the same curriculum as FLA 30-1 but without the stress of writing a diploma exam at the end of the course. Both 30-1 and 30-2 are recognized by Campus Saint Jean.
Please Note: Only 25 credits from any combination of languages may be used towards a high school diploma. This means that if a student takes FLA 10, 20 & 30 and challenges French 10, 20 & 30, or if they enroll in French 10, 20 & 30 and Spanish 10, 20 & 30 they will earn 30 credits, of which only 25 will count towards the 100 credit requirement for a high school diploma.
