Ontario seems pretty advanced then. O.o High school and elementary teachers are being now taught about different types of learning.. Eg there are people that learn by listening, people that learn by reading, people that learn by seeing (usually artistic people), and the teachers tell us this, there's about 7 types of learners, most people generally learn one way the best but do learn several ways. The teachers have to make lessons that cover all aspects of learning, in a lot of cases, lots of demos for visual learners are done.
The teachers here always rant that we'll never be this babied in university, true.
Your school does sound off. Though I've never known of anyone skipping a grade in elementary level, it does happen in highschool and I have a few younger people in some classes. In highschool we have courses split into college and university level, depending on where you plan on going.
Ah, French. I started learning it the same time as English, won the excellence award for it graduating 8th grade. Now this one high school French teacher has brought me down. I don't have her next year, thank god. If I actually do well next year, I'm considering going to Ottawa U to continue my French studies, but we'll see.
