|Description:||French is primarily a language of communication as well as one of the official languages of Canada. Learning French opens doors to a large number of employment possibilities like teaching, journalism, translating, writing, public and civil services. Governments need qualified bilingual employees in all their departments at the federal level. In Cape Breton, many local employers look for specific language skills and prefer bilingual job seekers.
During the first two years, courses are designed to further listening and speaking skills, along with an added emphasis on reading and writing. In order to compensate for differing levels of skill among incoming students, steps will be taken to implement more individualized instruction. More advanced students will be encouraged to engage in projects that will enhance their knowledge of French and Canadian civilization and culture. Third and fourth year literature courses will develop this knowledge.
