Teachers can capitalize on the French language skills obtained in early French immersion for the implementation of an effective English language arts program. The guidelines address the importance of the transitional year, early diagnostic procedures, suitable beginning activities, positive transfer of learning, potential areas of confusion, designing the transitional language arts program, pupil evaluation, important basic skills, remediation and enrichment, and scheduling.
