Languages

French

All students participate in French language instruction beginning in Kindergarten.  Fraser Valley students enjoy French once per week in Kindergarten, and twice per week from Grade 1 onward.  Our French program utilizes AIM (Accelerative Integrated Methodology) language learning to support student understanding.  This gesture-based, storytelling structure includes repetition to support student oral development in French.

Mother Tongue

According to the IBO, maintaining proficiency in one’s mother tongue helps in the learning of other languages.  Fraser Valley students are encouraged to speak, make connections and share their Mother Tongue languages with our learning community.  The Learning Hub supports Mother Tongue acquisition with a section of books reflective of the languages spoken within our community.
