In 2023, teachers engage with the Modern Languages K–10 Syllabus (2022), and plan and prepare for implementation of the new curriculum.

In 2024, implementation commences in schools, with:

  • K–6
  • 7–10 mandatory 100 hour courses

Support for French K–10 Syllabus (2018)

The French K–10 Syllabus (2018) was developed using the Languages K–10 Framework. As all K-10 language syllabuses (2017 and later) are underpinned by this framework, teachers should view resources across all languages to access a broader range of sample scope and sequences, unit starters and assessment tasks.
