  1. 1. PO BOX 3045 STN CSC UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA VICTORIA BC V8W 3P4 CANADA Tel: (250) 721-7316; Fax: (250) 721-7319 Email: Re: Letter of Recommendation for Angus Hardy-Francis April 24, 2014 To Whom It May Concern: It is with great pleasure that I write a letter of recommendation for Angus Hardy-Francis. Angus was a student in my advanced German language and culture course (GMST 301: Intercultural Explorations) during the fall semester 2013 at the University of Victoria. He ranked among the top 25% in this course receiving an A. As GMST 301 was offered to native speakers as well as second-language learners, both sets of students had to fulfill their own specific course requirements. Native German speakers such as Angus were asked to independently mentor their fellow students while leading, among other activities, classroom discussions. I was delighted to observe that Angus was an engaged team member who successfully facilitated group talks. As part of the course, students could opt to complete a three-week Sprachpraktikum (language internship) at the Victoria German School. The teachers who supervised Angus during his internship were extremely complimentary of both his attitude and his performance (they would be all eager to see him return in the near future). Even though Angus had a full academic schedule, he co-volunteered to run the weekly German Conversation Café. Reading his weekly reports, I could clearly see that he was deeply committed to making the German Conversation Café a lively learning experience for all the participants (regardless their diverse cultural and linguistic proficiency backgrounds). It came thus as no surprise that our conversation café was prominently featured in the student-ran newspaper The Martlet.
  2. 2. On a personal note, Angus Hardy-Francis has a very pleasant and polite demeanor; he also has an excellent sense of humour. I would highly recommend him for any internship and/or employment opportunities that require a strong team spirit and advanced communication skills. If you have any questions or would like me to elaborate further on this student’s abilities, please feel free to contact me at 1-250-721 7321, or Yours sincerely, Charlotte Schallié, Ph.D. Assistant Professor in Germanic Studies
