According to the Ministry of Education, all Ontario students are required to complete one credit in French as a Second Language. Most students complete this compulsory requirement at Grade 9, the first year they enter high school. The 1999 Grade 9 and 10 French as a Second Language Curriculum offered only two options to students: FSF1D (Core French Academic) and FSF1P (Core French Applied). The prerequisite for both of these courses was and still is (under the 2014 curriculum) a minimum of 600 hours of French instruction, or equivalent. Students who attend the brick and mortar public or private elementary schools in Ontario often meet this requirement, as French studies are part of pupils’ daily learning.
