What is the French Module?
The PDP French module is designed for those interested in teaching in French Immersion, Core French (French as a Second Language Elementary of Secondary) or Francophone programs. Most of this module is taught in French.
Applicants must indicate their interest in this module at the time of admissionpplication by indicating on the PPS SurveyMonkey Apply application you are interested in the French program.and submit a letter of intent. They must also submit their French Language Proficency certification (DELF/DALF score) unless they are from a Francophone country with mostall of their post-secondary schooling in French). Questions on DELF/DALF exemptions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elementary Core French, French Immersion or Francophone Programs:
Applicants who apply to the elementary stream are considered for both the French Module and the general elementary stream of PDP If they have completed 6 units of English Literature with the required French Language Proficiency certification (DELF/DALF result). All pre-requisites must be completed by May 15.
Applicants that complete only French Literature or do not have the pre-requisite courses complete by May 15 are only considered for the French Module.
Secondary Core French:
Applicants must have a major or minor in French Language & Literature, and enter the French Module. They also must have the required French Language Proficency certification (DELF/DALF result) unless they are from a francophone country with all their post-secondary schooling in French.
Secondary Core French with a second teachable:
For applicants who have completed 6 units of English Literature, their second teachable does not need to be taught in French (e.g. teach an English-speaking PE course). If they do not complete the English Literature requirement, they need to have a DALF C1 score to teach both Secondary subjects in French Immersion.
Secondary French Immersion or Francophone Programs:
Applicants who apply to the secondary stream for French Immersion (with a non-Core French teachable) must provide a French Language Proficency certificate of DALF C1 score, and will be placed in the French Module. They are considered for both the French Module and general secondary stream of PDP (only if they have completed 6 units of English Literature by April 30th.)
