What is FSL? It stands for French as a Second Language which would be FLS in French – Français Langue Seconde. However, depending on where you live, it may also be called Core French, French as a Foreign Language (FFL) or Français Langue Étrangère (FLE).
Who am I? Well, my name is actually Pierre Renaud and I have been a French teacher since 1990. A few people asked me why I use M. Renaud instead of P. Renaud in the title. As most of you know, M. stands for Monsieur.
I first created “FSL Activities with M. Renaud” in 1996 when I was teaching at Connaught P.S. in Ottawa, Canada. It started as a classroom activity that grew much bigger over the years. In 2001, I moved to Victoria (British Columbia) where I taught French immersion and technology at École Margaret Jenkins School. I moved to Ottawa in 2008 where currently teach a grade 3/4 class at Manordale Public School. I hope to continue providing students, parents and educators with a wide variety of resources that will help learn and teach French.
