bonjour!

i am trying to say, "he wants to incorporate foreign languages into our elementary schools," yet i'm not quite sure what preposition to use for "into" in this case.

here's my sentece: "il veut incorporer des langues étrangères dans/en nos écoles primaires."

merci!

    "dans" rather than "en," I would say, though I'm not a native speaker....

    but do you really "incorporate" a language into a school? actually, you incorporate (integrate) it into the curriculum that is being taught....

    try looking up "incoporer" and "intégrer" in the TLF, where there are lots of examples in the definitions...
