French as a Second Language (FSL) Program: A Guide for Parents.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
The guide is designed to give parents basic information about the French second language (FSL) program of Alberta (Canada) elementary and secondary schools, and to answer commonly-asked questions. Sections address these topics: the benefits of second language learning; choosing French as a second language; how the FSL program is structured; how much French can be learned in FSL; assurance of program quality; the parent's role in supporting the child in FSL; and common questions about the age at which a child should begin language study, considerations for the child who already knows some FSL, the difference between FSL and French immersion, starting a new program, changing schools, teacher qualifications, university admission requirements, earning high school credits with French learned through grade 9, and FSL courses available in high school.
