Certificate in French as a Foreign Language, Upper Intermediate Level
“I am a student in the French as a Foreign Language Certificate Program, upper intermediate level at l’Université Laval. Before coming to Quebec city, I completed a Master degree in environmental education and communication and worked in the field. I always worked for organisations which offered programs both in French and English. However, I could only teach in English. I then chose l’Université Laval because of its major historical significance in the French-speaking world and the good reputation of l’École de langues. The teachers and tutors are indeed amazing! Many other reasons pushed me to learn French. A part of my family comes from Québec and I wanted to understand their history. Learning French was also a dream for me in my childhood. My objective is to live in Québec City and to work in the environmental education and communication field. I hope that I will be able to work for a non-profit organization, for l’Université Laval or the government. Studying at l’Université Laval will help me learn French, to have fun and, of course, to reach my goal!”
