Prototypes initiative


In 2021, the department worked with schools and districts to develop 11 Language Learning Opportunity (LLO) prototype projects. These projects explored how locally designed projects could maximize resources already available in communities with the goal of increasing students’ exposure to conversational French. We also wanted to give students more opportunities to speak French to improve their confidence and interest.

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is pleased with the positive feedback we have received to date from teachers, students and families. Based on the recommendations from the report on second language learning and successes in the first year, the program was extended for the 2022-2023 year.
