Extended French at Oakwood

Oakwood is proud to be one of only 13 secondary schools across the TDSB that offer the Extended French program. This intensive program gives students extra exposure to the French language throughout their secondary studies. Students in the Extended French program will take 4 French courses as well as 4 courses in other subjects where French is the language of instruction. Students who successfully complete all 8 courses in the program will be awarded the Honours Certificate of Bilingual Studies in Extended French.

This program is specifically designed for those students who have already participated in an Extended French or Immersion Program in elementary school.
To further enrich the program, French students go on excursions to French places in Toronto, such as Café Crêpe and Le Théâtre français de Toronto. This year, we would like to view a film at Cinéfranco, the International Francophone Film festival of Toronto and we will participate in a workshop at Le Salon du livre.

In March 2016, we spent 10 days in Paris, the Loire and the Riviera! The sights were amazing and the chance to experience French culture and speak with locals was incredible.
