schools in isolated areas or
schools that don’t have enough students interested in learning French to offer a course in the language
can regroup and create clusters which will enable them to register their students on online classes (and gain access to teaching materials). The Virtual Learning Network is easy to use and a great option for small schools or schools with small numbers of French students. VLN is growing fast!
