At Ecole Georges H. Primeau Middle School, we offer dual-track programing within our school community. Listed below are a number of links to support our English track program within our school.
Research confirms the benefits from French Immersion education are many. Immersion education expands the intellect; strengthens English literacy skills; develops enhanced feelings of self-esteem and pride in having acquired an additional language; encourages the joy of lifelong learning; allow students to compete internationally; provides students with more choices for advanced education and career options; and broadens students' cultural lives through access to literature, art, music and theatre in another language.
Why Learn a Second Language?
Knowing a second language can certainly increase your child's personal pleasures such as the enjoyment of literature, art, music, theater, travel and personal relationships. Another benefit of learning a second language is that it helps to increase your child's understanding of and respect for other people and other cultures.
It enables your child to become more aware of his country and fellow Canadians. For the future, having a second language will give your child access to a larger pool of information and to more educational and career opportunities. A second language will also give your child a competitive edge in the job market anywhere in Canada and in many other countries.
