to the cL2c!

The Second Language Education cohort (cL2c) is officially made up of a core team of Primary/Junior (P/J) teacher candidates who are interested in the teaching and learning of French and English as second languages (L2) in Canada. Participants will be able to take part in interactive discussions on important developments in L2 education in Canada, cultural activities and opportunities to enhance their language skills. These activities will also be available to students from other cohorts and other divisions (Junior/Intermediate and Intermediate/Senior). We are pleased to welcome P/J students into the cL2c and to work with all Teacher Education program students interested in learning more about L2 teaching and learning!

Description of the cL2c

The cL2c is part of the two-year Teacher Education program at the University of Ottawa. The cohort is primarily designed for teacher candidates who are interested in L2 education in Canada. All communication is provided in a bilingual format; some specific sessions are offered exclusively in French or English.

Being part of the cL2c is beneficial! The resulting benefits are numerous and include, amongst others:

– A pleasant cultural experience
– Interactive learning sessions
– A variety of relevant resources
– More professional opportunities

Vision of the cL2c

The cL2c is committed to promoting the learning of second languages (French and English) via active participation in cultural activities and discussions related to emerging trends in L2 education in Canada. We believe that successful L2 learning involves creativity and innovation, as well as interdisciplinarity and examination of all fields of study. This is what the cL2c intends to offer to all of its members.
