International Languages - Secondary Students

Did you know there are many benefits to taking credit language courses?

International Languages Secondary Courses can be applied toward the Ontario Secondary Diploma as a Group 1 - Compulsory or as an Elective Credit.

Students in the Secondary International Languages program can earn up to three credits towards graduation.

If students successfully complete the Level D - University course, it can be used as one of their top six marks for post-secondary entry. For example, if a student takes Spanish Level B, C and D, the student can submit their Level D mark as one of the top six marks for post-secondary applications.

  • During the pandemic, enrolment in the ILIL Credit program grew when compared to previous years. As a result, the program will remain in an Online format.
  • The program will be delivered virtually through synchronous learning, supported by  asynchronous activities.

The Advanced Placement (AP) Simplified Mandarin course is available to high school students who have successfully completed the Level C, Simplified Mandarin course. The AP exam is typically at the difficulty level of first-year university courses, and; therefore, most Ontario universities often award university-level credit for earning high scores on these exams. Also, the Advanced Placement Program enables and academically prepares students to pursue university-level studies. Since only one AP course is offered, registration is first-come, first-served. Additional fees apply. If you are interested, please contact our main office: ILIL@yrdsbc.ca.
