Students in this course will meet the same curriculum expectations and cover the same workload as students in ENG 2DI. This course is designed for independent learners who are highly motivated in the area communications, including reading, writing, oral communications and media studies. Some course content will be studied at a deeper level to enhance critical thinking skills in preparation for university.
COURSE NOTE: This course is recommended for students seeking enrichment and whose average in English exceeds the provincial average of 75%. Students should download a Pre-AP English Referral Form from the school website, have their current English teacher fill it out, and submit it to guidance.

Core French (Pre-AP) FSF2DP
This enrichment course provides opportunities for students to communicate in French about personally relevant, familiar, and academic topics in real-life situations with increasing independence. Students will exchange information, ideas, and opinions with others in guided and increasingly spontaneous spoken interactions. Students will continue to develop their language knowledge and skills through the selective use of strategies that contribute to effective communication. They will also increase their understanding and appreciation of diverse French-speaking communities, and will continue to develop the skills necessary to become life-long language learners.
COURSE NOTE: A Pre-AP French student must be self-motivated, confident in the language and ready for new learning opportunities and challenges.
