Wonderful environment, where I thrived as a translator
Translator/Interpreter (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL2 January 2017
This was a very short, free-lance job, but I sincerely enjoyed the experience. I dream of being a professional translator.
Working with different languages is what I am most passionate about; making sure the client is understood no matter what.

Aiding new Canadians in their transition to Canada
Cooperative Education Student (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL7 July 2015
Working at ANC was a great experience. You are the first longstanding point-of-contact for most of the students there. You teach the same for three hours a day from 9 AM-12PM. Each class is leveled by the learners current English level, and you will spend your three hours teaching them Canadian culture, English skills appropriate for their level and social norms of Canada.

Meeting and interacting with a person from a foreign country.
ESL Teacher, Stephenville (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL1 March 2013
A typical day at work is setting up class. Have the student recite given material. Having student repeat vocabulary. Introducing student to our college. Teaching English rules in punctuation, grammar, and vocabulary.

I have learned that teaching English to a foreign student takes a lot more work. I have learned a little about her language and her country. I learned that the student loves our province and enjoys living here.

Management was always available and answered all questions I had. They were easy to reach by phone or email.

Co-workers were ready and willing to give any help needed and was very informative.

The hardest part of the job was trying to understand what the student was trying to communicate.

the most enjoyable part of the job was breaking through our language barriers and understanding each other. The student understanding the rules of English and putting them into practice.
Pros
visit to the college
Cons
not enough time during class time to spend with student.

This was my work term so it was not paid. I did enjoy the work and the people were exceptionally nice. If I had the opportunity I would go back and work for them again.
