Grade 7
French as a Second Language (FSL)


What your child is learning

I’m getting better at communicating in French. Your child will discuss and write about familiar topics, such as school subjects and activities, the weather, and friends. They will compare different Francophone cultures. Your child will also decide how to correctly address people and when to use formal or informal language, and they will correctly write addresses and telephone numbers in French.

How your child is assessed

Your child’s learning is assessed using a variety of tools and strategies within the classroom. Ask your child’s teacher what methods they are using. The different assessment methods tell you and your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths, the areas in which they might grow and how well your child is doing throughout the course. Your child’s teacher can then change or refine their teaching plans to ensure that learning activities better meet the needs of your child. At the end of the course, your child is assessed and their achievement is reported so that you know if they have achieved the expected learning outcomes for their grade.

Resources to help your child

A variety of digital and print resources, developed by publishers, Alberta Education or Alberta teachers, are available to help students learn.
