Second Languages


Living Waters Catholic School Division recognizes Canada’s status as a bilingual country with French and English as the two official languages, and the linguistic aspirations of our First Nations community and
therefore believes it has a responsibility to offer Second Language programs.
 
The Division will offer a Second Language program to all students in grades 4 through 12 with the goals for students to:
    • Acquire basic communication skills and develop competency in the language;
    • Develop cultural sensitivity and enhance personal development;
    • Develop originality and creativity in language;
    • Acquire additional concepts and generalizations about language and language
      learning; and
    • Develop a desire to extend or improve proficiency in languages through further
      language study, whether for interest, post-secondary requirements, or vocational
      needs.
