One of our students left Ontario last year to go to Pearson College in British Columbia. He dropped by for a visit today and I had a little chat with him. He was talking about his French skills and how much they’ve improved. He also mentioned how much more difficult he finds the courses there. He talked about the testing methods in his French class. His tests are essays — no grammar questions. I also ask essay questions, but that’s not the only method I use. However, Pearson College is a completely different context and different environment. I would love to sit in on a class at Pearson College, just to see what they do. I probably wouldn’t be able to transfer much into my own context, but I still think it would be interesting nonetheless.
My students are continuing their research for their projects. I’m trying to give them as much library time as possible so that they’re not overwhelmed.
Bon week-end à tous!
