Ithacans Selected to Teach in France
The French Section of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures is pleased to announce that the following Ithacans have been selected by the French government to serve as assistants d’anglais for the 2014 - 2015 academic year: Scott Card (’13), Elizabeth Suttmeier (’14), Malcolm Temple (’14), and Victoria Wolak (’14).
Each year, under the auspices of the Teaching Assistantship Program in France, the French government selects a number of graduating seniors and recent alumni from American colleges and university to teach English language and American culture in the French public schools. The selection process is highly competitive and requires students to demonstrate a high level of proficiency in the French language, excellent communication skills, and an ability to serve as an effective ambassador in promoting cross-cultural awareness and dialogue.
Please join us in congratulating these students on their achievement.
Félicitations Scott, Ellie, Malcolm et Vicky.
Nous sommes très fiers de vous !
Bon courage et bon séjour en France.
