Please be advised that on November 30th, Tara Moon of the Ministry of Education & Child Care of BC, will be holding several information sessions at UFV about two amazing government-funded opportunities to improve your French language skills. If you have student status this school year and are either a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, we invite you to join us in room ABB 121 at either 1430, 1500, or 1530 to learn more!
Explore is a 5-week intensive French-immersion program that is offered during the spring and summer. If you are interested in learning or improving French and travelling to a new part of Canada, then Explore might be the perfect program for you. Explore is funded by the Government of Canada, allowing most participants to fully engage in the program instead of worrying about money. You can also receive university credits for participating.
With Odyssey, you will inspire youth to practice their English-speaking skills and share your culture while getting paid! As a language assistant, you will work in a classroom setting with teachers, using games and activities to help students learn and improve English.
Embark on this Odyssey from September to May, and you will:
- earn paid work experience in a classroom setting (approximately $25 per hour)
- discover whether the field of education is right for you
- experience francophone culture and way of life in New Brunswick or Quebec
- develop new skills and improve your French-speaking skills
We look forward to seeing you on November 30th!
