Modern Languages

The Modern Languages Department at Holy Trinity offers courses in Core French and Extended French. If you are thinking of travelling, it is vital to know and speak other languages. Canada has two official languages, and as such, it is very useful to be able to speak both.

At Holy Trinity, French is offered at the Academic and Applied levels in grades 9 and 10 and at the University Preparation and Open levels in grades 11 and 12.

Extended French is in its fourth year at Holy Trinity. This year’s grade 9 and 10 Extended French students will be taking grade 9 Canadian Geography in French. Next year’s grade 9 and 10 students will be able to take Grade 10 Academic History in French.

This year’s grade 12 French students both core and extended will have the opportunity to challenge the DELF, a French Language proficiency test recognized world- wide at the B1 Level at St. John’s College in the month of May.

The French Club meets monthly for cultural events and as a means of extending the French language beyond the class room.
