Nein, ich bin Kanadier, aber ich spreche Deutsch. French Immersion is a programme that has existed in Canada since the late 60's thanks to Pierre Trudeau. Students in our Board begin to do all their courses in French at Grade 4 level. At Grade 7, a couple of courses revert back to English, and by Grades 9 and 10 they do about one-third in French - Language, Geography, History, Business, Dramatic Arts, Civics and Careers - courses like that. But it does depend on the school and the board. Some high schools offer math and science in French or art and phys ed. We are more oriented towards the social sciences. Some boards also introduce immersion much earlier at kindergarten.

I'm a New Yorker, and want to move to Vancouver. I love the immersion model, and would like to try something new. I teach history and German in English...
I'm at the point where I still need to work hard to pass the tes to teach in the French imm. classroom (from University of B.C, I believe), as I suspect I might not pass it now...What are the qualifications, besides the test? I have no for-credit courses in French. Would that be a stumbling block?

I hope you feel better. Thank you!

Hey Pamela,

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!

That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at

Do you mind passing my message along to students and your colleagues again?

Hi Pamela! Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if you, your colleagues, or students would be interested in a Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get New York students involved. Please let me know! Thanks!

Hi Pamela,

If NYC Dept. of Ed. is interested in web based Ed Technology I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based, have a bunch of features and offer free basic service.
