Grade 9
French as a Second Language (FSL)


What your teen is learning

French can be a part of life after junior high. In preparation for adulthood, your teen will learn about jobs in which French is useful. This year, they will add to what they already know about the French language and Francophone culture, exploring life in Francophone communities and correctly using French for building and street names, measurement symbols, and correspondence. Your teen will write and talk about a variety of topics, including sports, housing designs, and sports injuries and injury prevention.

How your teen is assessed

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

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