Section bilingue Anglophone

Section Bilingue

The Bilingual Section offers bilingual and bicultural education from the CP through the 3ème (approximately ages 6 through 14) for children who are bilingual English-French either from English-speaking parents or from having lived abroad.

Our teachers are native-speakers who are qualified and experienced in teaching English as a second language and in anglo-saxon teaching approaches.

Students benefit from :

  • the opportunity to progress in English with coursework and materials equivalent to that of students their age in an English-speaking country           
  • small class size maximizing individual attention and opportunity to participate
  • an Anglophone learning environment
  • special events and activities organised throughout the year to emphasize the muti-cultural aspect of our school
  • a program that is integrated into the French school system alongside the complete curriculum of the Education Nationale The Bilingual Section celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2012 and the festivities  included the viewing of the student film project, an all-section family picnic and a birthday party with the bilingual students’ classmates. The Bilingual Section was also honoured at the school’s annual kermesse in June.

SECONDARY SCHOOL


At the collège level, the bilingual program offers English Language Arts and History courses for students who are bilingual. The student body comes from a wide variety of international Anglophone backgrounds. They have between four and six hours of English instruction per week, depending on the grade-level. The coursework is similar to that of students of the same age in the U.S.A. or the U.K. and all textbooks and materials are designed for native English speakers.

There is extensive work on written expression and comprehension, formal and informal speaking skills, vocabulary building and the mechanics of the language (spelling and grammar). Students read novels, short stories, plays, and non-fiction texts on scientific, historical or social topics.

Group discussions, journal writing, class projects and activities are built around these readings.
There is continued work on different genres of writing using the academic writing process where students learn the steps to improve their written work. They practice brainstorming techniques and learn the first draft- evaluating-revising- editing-final draft process.

The History course is in addition to that of the French National curriculum and various themes are explored depending on the grade level : In 6ème the focus is on the History of the U.K. and in 5ème the focus is on U.S. History.
