Language learning

Language learning at lycée Claudel

The educational approach of Lycée Claudel regarding language teaching aims to give our students a plurilingual and pluricultural education as a true expression of our educational project.


French is at the core of the project that gave birth to the Lycée Claudel in 1962, aiming to build a school recognized by the French Ministry of National Education in which teaching is laic and provided in French by qualified teachers.

The French language occupies a singular and prominent place in the school. It is both the language of communication, the language in which education is provided, the mother tongue of the majority of students, but also the language in which the relationship with the world is built for all our students.


English is the mother tongue of a significant proportion of our students and the language with which all our students maintain a close relationship that allows them to be open to Canadian culture and history.

The program offers reinforced instruction in English to all our students as well as a program in the American International Section starting in CP for all students and in 6th grade for native speakers or those who have a strong level of English.

Other languages

In order to benefit from a plurilingual and pluricultural education, our students must have access to a linguistic offer that will allow them to flourish and develop their skills.
Lycée Claudel gives access to a third language starting from 6th grade and a fourth language from the moment they enter the Lycée, offering students a wide variety of courses adapted to their profiles and valued for the diplomas they are working towards.
