- Form to apply for more than one second language
Do you speak a second language? If yes, come join us! Working here is a great way to help others and to practice your own language skills.
The Digital Language Centre regularly hires student monitors skilled in a second language to help incoming students and to keep the place humming nicely. We are looking for students fluent in one or more of the following languages: German, Russian, French, Italian, Spanish or Japanese. Student assistants of French and Spanish also handle first-year conversation classes and must be prepared to take these on when they apply to work here.
You must be registered full-time at M.U.N. during the term for which you are applying in order to be eligible to work in the Centre. As a general guideline, the minimum qualification for these positions is completion of second year university-level courses in the language for which application is sought, or equivalent knowledge. Successful applicants who are chosen to lead conversation classes should have a strong oral and written command of that language.
New monitors usually start at 5-6 hours/week, depending on need, and the pay rate is $14.65/hr. Once new monitors have one semester under their belt, and they have become familiar with the basic operation of the lab(s), the number of hours they receive in subsequent semesters is usually higher.
Applicants for positions in French and German will be required to take a language test prior to being hired. This test is comprised of two parts: a written section and an aural interview. It is usually given around the first week of exams in the semester preceding the one for which application is sought.
If you are proficient in a second language and are interested in working in the Digital Language Centre, please print out the appropriate form and, along with an up-to-date résumé, send it in, or deliver it to:
