WE OFFER DIFFERENT WAYS TO LEARN A SECOND LANGUAGE


About 'For the Love of French' & 'For the Love of English'  

When living in the National Capital Region, speaking both official languages (English and French) is very helpful and a highly sought-after skill by employers. That is why your Military Family Resource Centre is offering For the Love of French and For the Love of English.  

French and English classes will be given by Nathaly Carnahan. Nathaly is the daughter of a military member and a military spouse, which has led her to move more than 25 times across Canada and the United States. With over 30 years of teaching children and adults, Nathaly joined our team in June, 2020 to teach English and French as a second language for military spouses. We are very pleased to benefit from her experience as a daughter and spouse of military members, and as a teacher, to deliver second language courses.
