Help for parents with children in French Immersion.

This site supports parents who have children in a “French Immersion” (FI) program and wish to assist them with homework in French. It is also a resource for FI students who require an accessible user friendly reference tool to help with homework. Learners and educators in other FSL programs will also find it helpful.

This website will enrich the FSL learning experience and will engage parents in their child’s journey towards “la francophonie”.

Helpful sections include:


  • audio files in French and English
  • video clips demonstrating instructional strategies
  • a reference guide for specific topics
  • a list of French language learning websites
  • general tips for learning French

To inform future planning on how best to support FI students and parents with FSL homework, you will be invited to share your feedback about the website. All input provided will be very much appreciated.



This website produced by Rainbow District School Board was based on the 2010 needs assessment conducted by Canadian Parents For French and was made possible through the financial support of the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage.
