French Immersion

French Immersion at École Edwards Elementary School

At École Edwards, we are proud to provide French immersion programming. French immersion offers students much more than another language; French language learning promotes flexible thinking and opens doors to the world. Children who are exposed to new languages tend to learn them quickly due to their neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to create links and pathways as they learn new things, and they continue to have higher levels of neuroplasticity over their lifetimes. Thanks to the workout that learning a new language gives the brain, students in the French Immersion program develop heightened listening, memory, and problem-solving skills. Bilingual learners also develop an appreciation for culture and a greater understanding of the world around them as learning French makes students part of the 275 million people who speak French worldwide! Being French speakers in Canada, students benefit by being able to apply for more jobs as they head into the workforce, and have opportunities to use their French in 29 countries around the world who also have French as an official language. Our students are proud of their language learning and would be more than happy to have a conversation in French with you.
