Has anyone heard of people getting refused after the French comprehension phone interview??!!?? Had my french interview last wednesday. I was in lecture, I initially hung up and they called back. The second time I ran out of the lecture and took the call. I'm a TA and sit in the front, it was kinda funny as the class of 300+ students saw me. Anyway, I was kind of familiar with some of the typical questions they would ask but didn't actually have time to prepare for them before hand. The call was so unexpected, they gave me the option to call back WHICH I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN! But I was done playing the waiting game and just wanted to take it! Anyway, I'm pretty sure I messed up a lot of the questions. I answered all in English. I should have spoke in French to show them I could. I did an exchange in Lyon, France and I also did the Explore program in Quebec. I'm not french immersion but studied all throughout high school and took courses during my BA. But I froze on the exam. I couldn't even speak proper English I was so nervous, let alone in a noisy building. They asked about the last book I read in French and I jokingly said "Le Petit Prince"...we both chuckled, then I said Discipline and Punish by Foucault. At least they know I have a good sense of humour! AHHHH I walked away with my head down.
So many questions. I'm hyper-ventilating. ----- I graduated with Highest Honours at Carleton. Currently finishing my MA in Legal Studies of which I won an OGS for.
