The Surrey School District was the first school district in British Columbia to offer a new French as a second language program for Grade 6 students.
Intensive French (IF) was developed to improve the communication abilities of students taking French as part of the regular core curriculum. Intensive French is a program in which students use French in real communication contexts for extended periods of time. It started in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1998 and is now offered across Canada.  The Surrey School District added this program of choice in 2004 and now has intensive French in 5 elementary schools (with a post-IF program in 3 secondary schools). The Vancouver School District added the program in 2007 with two schools and now offers it as a district program at Fleming Elem, Franklin Elem and Brock Elementary. IF is also offered in Mission, Kimberley and Invermere, BC.
