QC report highlights challenges students have with French at the cégep level


A recently released report from the Government of Quebec’s higher education ministry has found that one in four students fail their first French cégep course. The report also found that French proficiency is directly related to the rate of students obtaining their diploma. The authors note that French proficiency must be improved and make 35 recommendations, including encouraging cégeps to teach French. Organizations such as Fédération des cégeps and Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec expressed their support of the report, but several cégep instructors expressed frustration to Radio-Canada about being tasked with teaching fundamental French language skills.
