This video was produced by Canadian Parents for French to honour the many hardworking students studying French as a second language across the country. Students of all ages fill in the blanks to the title statement: “I want to become bilingual because…”
The answers are as varied and engaging as the students themselves, who represent the diverse and multicultural voices of elementary, middle and high school students in every province and territory. These students want to be functionally bilingual for all the obvious reasons and more—not just to have more university choices and career opportunities, but also to make more friends, have more fun, and even gain more knowledge for the sake of knowledge itself.
This video is, which includes 1995’s Proud of Two Languages as a special feature, is available free to CPF members and can be ordered online or by contacting Krystal Albert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Thank you so much for producing I Want to Become Bilingual Because. This video is quite exciting for us. We support all of the work that CPF does and encourage our community to get involved with our local groups.”
