Second language learning brings with it innumerable benefits and advantages.

A second language can:

Ø Increase your child’s thinking skills as he/she processes two languages

Ø Broaden your child’s appreciation and understanding of another culture and people, as well as increase his/her sensitivities to the differences between cultures;

Ø Boost your child’s self-esteem;

Ø Make learning another language that much easier;

Ø Increase your child’s opportunity for employment.


As a student in the Canadian school system, learning French as a second language seems the most logical and natural fit. Your child will be in good company.
