|OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF OFFICIAL LANGUAGES TO FORMALLY LAUNCH NEW VIDEO AT LAURENHILL ACADEMY|
MONTREAL, MAY 6, 2014- The Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages of Canada will formally launch a new video on the occasion of National Teachers Day, Wednesday, May 7 (9:30 a.m.) at LaurenHill Academy (2505 Cote Vertu) in St. Laurent. It will be shown in the broadcasting class of teacher Louis Bilodeau, whose students were involved in the production process more than a year ago.
LaurenHill’s online radio station, the only one of its kind in Canada, is home to The Anglais-French show. It is hosted in both official languages by two 16-year-old students, one of them speaking only in English, the other only in French.
The Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages produced a video of Commissioner Graham Fraser’s appearance on the show last year. He and the students talk about the benefits of learning both official languages, the place of English and French in Canada and Quebec, and other interesting matters.
