Are you a parent looking to offer your child all the benefits of a dual-language education? You might feel a little overwhelmed with questions and uncertainties about French-second-language, or FSL, education. Even if you’ve already made the decision to enrol your child in an FSL program, you might be at a loss as to how you can help him or her succeed if you don’t speak French yourself.

CPF is here to help. We have many informative pamphlets and brochures that can help you pick the right program for the right child; and for parents whose children are already studying FSL, we have resources that can help you help your kids. We are primarily, first and foremost, a parent-oriented organization, so we are here for you and your family every step of the way.

  • French for Parents Courses


    Winter 2020

    Join us for an opportunity to improve your French with other adults. This course is suited to beginner and intermediate students who want to become more comfortable using French and have a better grasp of the basic rules of the language.

    Each week the instructor uses a thematic approach in order to cover a range of important topics. The first half of each class is concept-based, including learning vocabulary, grammar, and structure. The second half of each class is practice and oral activities, so you can put into place that night’s lesson.

    Activities will be designed for students who are beginners to intermediate. Each week’s activities will have different targets for learners from each category.

    Classes are 90 minutes each, and the course is eight weeks in duration. To register, contact Canadian Parents for French Nova Scotia by phone at 902-453-2048 by email at [email protected] or complete the registration form at the bottom of this page.

    Classes are capped to 14 students, register early to avoid disappointment.

Content will be adjusted to suit each class’s abilities, and students will be expected to engage with the content in a way appropriate to their level. • These classes are not for advanced students.
