How have I developed this competency during this course or professional seminar/field experience?  
  
  
I have
  developed this competency by communicating respectfully and humbly to all students and staff members.
  
    first internship was in a French immersion school which means all classes are in French from grade 1 to 4. I had the
My
 
responsibility
   to make sure to speak to all students in French even if it’s not their first language. I assisted in a reading
workshop where all teachers get together to help students read the letters and words in French. I would help correct students'
  
mistakes
  and assist them while reading the sentences. From grade 5-6, students are allowed to speak in English when
 
responding to ask a question or add comments, even in a French class. I made sure to encourage students to communicate in 
French
  and explained why it is important for their future to keep this language. I also told them being bilingual is truly a gift and 
a privilege. If ever they are having any difficulty with the language, I would make sure to let them know that it is okay to make  
 
mistakes, as long as they don't give up. One tip to get stronger and better in a language would be to read books in order to  
 

 
improve our vocabulary; and to listen to the radio or TV shows in French.  
   
Growing up, I struggled a lot when it came to French Grammar and reading comprehension. Given that, I understood students' 
 
frustration whenever they couldn't complete a task. I personally have no problem when it comes to communicating in French  
and
  English but need to improve when it comes to grammar, writing and reading. I am fortunate enough to be bilingual and  
 
made sure to let all students know that they are lucky to be in a French immersion school where they have the freedom to
 speak English and French at such a young age.  
 
   
 
   Attach additional sheets if necessary.
