Courses in Western’s French Department meet all the guidelines of the Ontario Curriculum. Our motto is, “Être bilingue c’est un atout! - To be bilingual is a plus!” Through committed and innovative language teaching, we develop students’ French language facility and comfort in the French speaking world. Learning a second language gives students new insights into their first language. It also enhances overall skills in learning, expands career opportunities, and promotes understanding among cultures. Western’s students are global citizens, Western’s students are multilingual students.
