Results of a provincial survey of Manitoba's French immersion program graduates are reported. The two most recent cohorts of graduates (1987-88 and 1988-89) from nine secondary schools were surveyed, with 225 respondents. Three introductory sections describe the study's background and purpose, methodology, and interpretation. The fourth section contains the findings, in both tabular and narrative form, in these areas: perceived benefits of French immersion instruction; importance of maintaining French language skills; ability to use French; actual use of French; perceptions of educational gains and losses from participation in French immersion; participation in postsecondary education; postsecondary courses in French; reasons for not taking any further French; adequacy of French skills; postsecondary math and science courses; employment use of French; and general comments. Finally, the results are summarized. The survey questionnaire is included. (MSE)
