How to Proceed ?
Step 1 – Speak to both your child’s school teacher and the school’s Principal about applying to learn French in lieu of MTL. They will provide you with the necessary MOE application form
Step 2 – Complete the application form – Don’t worry, this is very easy and quick to do!
Tip: If your child is already learning French this may help their application, so add any additional information and proof you have. French Studio runs a number of beginner classes that you can enrol your child on – click here
Step 3 – Take the completed form to your child’s school and they will send it to the Ministry of Education.
Step 4 – Choose your French school upon obtaining approval. You will have to find a language tuition centre that is MOE certified, as local schools only provide classes in the official MTLs. Your child will need to study French throughout the scholar period.
