Julie Bramond moved to Quebec 7 years ago, working as a teaching assistant while doing her PHD in literature at UQAM. Then in 2011, Chris Hall, coordinator of the Language School at the time, hired her as a French teacher, and later, Julie was one of the main teachers for our Danish students.
When our partner institution, Qufu Normal University, located in Qufu, China, sent out a call for French teachers for the fall 2014 semester, she was happy to respond. Julie took mandarin lessons with Shirley Zhu, from our Modern Languages department, who also helped prepare her for her time teaching abroad.
While in China, Julie will be promoting French education abroad by teaching several classes, focusing on French literature, grammar and oral communication. She was chosen because of her skill set and knowledge and dedication to teaching.
We are very fortunate to have Julie on location, as she will be also acting as a guide to our 2 students, Rachel Lebrun and Aleksandra Ivaylova Vutova, who will be spending this year learning Mandarin in Qufu.
We are very proud of Julie for what she will accomplish.
