Foreign Language in Elementary School
Baccalauréat International
Programme pour jeunes enfants


Our International Baccalaureate candidacy at Wellwood is proud to provide instruction in the international language of French as a Special Area class, taught by Madame Currie. All children in second through fifth grade access curriculum through six units of inquiry that are enriched through weekly French lessons. This facilitates connections in learning both French and core content. Foreign language lends itself to an international mind-set and inquiry into how we work with others to understand challenges and create solutions. At the elementary level, we first and foremost delight in language and cultural diversity through French from around the world. Good communication skills are not confined to one language, form or function, so our children learn basic skills in French through song, speech, stories, art and hands-on projects, supported by a portfolio of progress. Families, please come share your French experience with our young ones! Merci beaucoup!
