CSLF study finds training in English in French programs, encourages monitoring language

August 3, 2021
The Government of Quebec’s Conseil supérieur de la langue française (CSLF) has completed released a report following a survey of over 2,700 university programs offered by the 15 French-language universities in the province. The report found that, while 88.5% of programs allow training entirely in French, the remainder contain at least some English. The study authors noted that English appears in education in a myriad of ways, including testimonies and surveys; required readings, examinations, and lesson plans; and university research and scientific publications. The Montréal Gazette reports that the study recommended that the presence of English within French-language university training be “monitored constantly.” QC (Report) | Montreal Gazette (CP) | Journal de Montréal (QC)
