Obadia, Andre A.
This brochure, intended for the parents of current and prospective French immersion students, answers commonly-asked questions about immersion education, including who should participate, how good the child's French will be, whether immersion students are likely to lose ground in English or academic subjects, how parents can provide support at home, whether children should ever be transferred out of immersion, availability of resource assistance in immersion programs, and choice of early vs. late immersion program. An order form for other publications by Canadian Parents for French, a national network of volunteers in support of French language learning and use, is included. (Contains 24 references.) (MSE)
