In the the area of Loyalist Township and Kingston, Ontario, increasingly, families with English as their mother tongue are choosing to send their children to French first language schools. In this episode we will meet two anglophone women who each have children in French-first language schools in the area. These French first language schools conduct all their daily functions in French. The language of instruction is French, the extracurriculars are in French and the kids are required to speak French during reassess. Our frank conversations will explore the challenges faced by English-speaking parents including helping with French-language homework, communicating with French-language school teachers and staff, communicating with the French-language transportation service, and contributing to French-language co-curricular activities, all from the perspective of an English community.
