The Modern Languages Department offers French courses from Grades 9-12. In addition, students have the option of learning Spanish in Grades 10-12. All courses are taught by enthusiastic teachers who speak fluent French, Spanish, or both. They provide students with an exciting and challenging learning environment where they can practice all aspects (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) of the languages. The teachers also provide stimulating "ambiance" where students learn about and immerse themselves in the rich French and Spanish cultures. Enrichment opportunities include film, theatre and restaurant excursions in Toronto, contests, and overseas trips as well as daily language and cultural activities in class. Students in the Spanish Club also organize events such as Mexican Food Days and Piñata sessions. Every two years, French and Spanish students participate enthusiastically in Bethune's World Tour celebrations.
