What is Early and Late French Immersion?
Many parents choose EFI because language learning poses few problems for the young child and the Early Immersion program capitalizes on the young child's inherent inclination to learn languages. The process of language learning works best when the learner is engaged in vital, necessary communication. Early Immersion works so well because a young child lacks self-consciousness, prejudice and negativism and loves mimicry, memorization and repetition. Early Immersion provides more time working in the second language and more time results in more learning. The success of the target language is directly related to the amount of exposure to it and the child learns to speak with more native fluency. Late Immersion offers students an alternate entry point to the French Immersion Program.
The Late French Immersion Program begins at grade 6 and continues to grade 12 with students who have no previous training in the French Language. In grade 6, 100% of the B.C. curriculum is taught in French; decreasing to 80% in Grade 7 when English Language Arts is reintroduced. In Grade 8, Early and Late French Immersion students merge into one program.
