About Basic French

Our school offers Basic French as a third language to students in Chinese-English stream with a view to providing an opportunity to learn the language and also the French culture.

Students are eligible to study Basic French throughout the whole primary school life from P1 to P6. They are exposed to French language two lessons a week and each lesson lasts for 35 minutes.

Our school believes that exposure to a third language at a young age plays a key role in cognitive development for our students. Starting learning a foreign language in early age increases the students’ level of language proficiency.
