French is one of Canada’s two official languages and is the first non-English language to be considered for entrance to several Canadian and International universities and is necessary to enter employment with the government.  Some focus will be on French as it is spoken and heard in Quebec. Taking French 8 is the prerequisite to taking French 9.
