Bell HS visited Quebec City in 2018.

Outside Old Québec is the parc de la Chute-Montmorency. We climbed to the top of the waterfall (an awe-inspiring 83 m)!

French as a Second Language (Core or Immersion) Certificate

Two French as a Second Language (FSL) programs are available for students — Core French or Immersion French. Both programs aim to foster an interest in French language learning that will continue throughout the student’s life. An FSL certificate is awarded to students who have pursued a concentrated study in French.

  • A Core French Certificate includes successfully completing 4 French language courses, including the Grade 11 and 12 Core French courses.
  • An Immersion French Certificate includes successfully completing 10 courses — 4 French language courses and 6 additional courses taught in French. A cooperative education placement or an eLearning credit offered in French, may be included toward the 6 additional credits.
