Hello dear moms,
I am really in need of some advice, experience sharing or inputs here. I kind of know the pros and cons of each program ( french immersion and english schools). What I need to know is that:
1-how fluently can french immersion students speak in french after graduation?
2- how much their english will suffer and if we need to work on their english literacy at home?
3- how important knowing french would be in their future job opportunities?
4-In ontario students study french for a few hours a week from grade 4 on, could that be enough for knowing french as a second language without compromising english as the main language?
5-what would be other advantage or disadvantage of french schools that you may know of?
I greatly appreciate any input on this.
