Bilingualism at Glendon
Everyone at Glendon graduates with some level of bilingual certification. To meet the minimum requirement, you must take six credits in FSL at the 2000 level or a six-credit discipline class, such as history, taught in French.
Want to go above and beyond the minimum requirements? Check out the other levels of bilingualism you can achieve at Glendon, and contact Academic Services for assistance on choosing a path that suits you.
Excellence in Languages
Glendon’s new wing, the Centre of Excellence for French-language and Bilingual Post-secondary Education, is another opportunity to take advantage of the resources you have at Glendon to improve and master French.
The Centre doesn’t just have open study spaces and a new amphitheatre; it’s also a place to enhance your bilingual activities outside of the classroom, thanks to its state-of-the-art language labs.
Teach English Abroad
On top of your degree, you can add a certificate in the Discipline of Teaching English as an International Language (D-TEIL). It’s the only one in Canada that helps you enter the international field of English language teaching.
If languages and living abroad are something that just speak to you, the D-TEIL program might be what you’re looking for. The D-TEIL is coupled with real-world experience. At the end of the program, students have the opportunity to travel to Cuba for 3 weeks to teach English at the end of April.
