exam-based electives [Jan. 12th, 2013|04:23 pm]

Hey everyone, any suggestions for classes that are entirely or almost entirely exam based? I'm wrapping up an English degree and need to minimize the amount of paper-writing I'm facing. I'm thinking of classes like first year psych, which are (or at least were) based entirely on multiple choice exams. At this point I'm willing to consider any subject (and worry about registration hurdles afterward :P).

I'm hoping to brush up on my French this summer. I was wondering if anyone knows how the placement tests work? Where do I go to sign up?

DC++ network? [Sep. 9th, 2011|06:56 pm]

i've heard a lot about DC++ from my older sister and it sounds brilliant, so I'm wondering if there's a network set up for this year? And if so, does anyone have the information on it?

I'm a masters student in a bilingual program where students have to take a course in their second language. My french education is kind of a jumble. Core French (Grade 3 - 6), AP French (Grades 7-12), one intro class in university and the J'Explore Programme (Niveau 3). I haven't taken a class in 3 years but I've been living and working in Montreal, which made me reasonably comfortable speaking in a casual environment without worrying about all the terrible grammar mistakes I'm making. I still mess up my gender pronouns and I can't use the conditional properly in a conversation. But I can type a reasonably correct email and read teen novels.

I've got one year to get my fluency to a level where I can function in a french graduate class (albeit submitting papers in english). Basically I need to be able to understand a lecture and read graduate level assignments. I was placed in FLS2511 and sat in on a class today. The prof spoke 50% english (though he says that will change) and most of the students were uncomfortable putting a sentence together. The OBLI is giving me a choice of either FLS2511 or FLS2512 this term.

Can anyone weigh in on the difference between the two? Is 2512 substantially harder then 2511?

Caution to U of O students! [Sep. 8th, 2011|01:57 pm]

[Current Location |Canada, Ontario, Ottawa]

At least, those using last year's pass while waiting for theirs to be printed.

I just heard a driver talking, and she said that drivers are accepting the expired visitors passes because Control tells them to, but the rent-a-cops will ticket.

As with everything else this year, this is seriously messed up. So fight if you have to! I am sure you'll win.

Bachelor of Education admissions [Jul. 31st, 2011|02:52 am]


Hey guys!

I've already graduated from the University of Ottawa with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in English, and now I'm thinking about reapplying for a Bachelor of Education.  I clearly have the credentials to be admitted into the program that only requires one teachable, but I'm hoping to teach French as well as English - because it's so much easier to get hired as a French teacher.  The only thing is, I didn't take any French courses in school.

The Ottawa U website is kind of confusing me.

When it talks about your second teachable, this is what it says:

At least 4 one-term university courses are required in the second teaching subject. These courses must be in the same field as the second teaching subject (no related subjects).
But then it adds this --

French as a Second Language

This option requires to pass both the oral and written components of the French language proficiency test.

So do I have to go and take some French courses first, or do I just have to pass the proficiency test to get into the BEd program?
