Language and Culture

Bonjour ~ Hola

At Lord Beaverbrook, students are offered the opportunity to learn French and Spanish. Both programs are intended for students who are beginning their study of the French and/or Spanish Languages and Cultures in Senior High school. These courses help students develop individual potential to be better prepared for daily living, as well as the challenges of national and international work and travel. These two programs of studies allow students to acquire the language skills in situations that reflect daily life experiences.

A student whose first language is French or Spanish, or is proficient in either of the two languages, may challenge the International Language Course credits in the selected language. The procedure to challenge a 30-3Y or 31A level in an International Language course requires: oral testing, written examination and a portfolio of language related work. Contact the International Languages Learning Leader for more information on the challenge process.
