Another teaching job in Italian. This language is growing! I love to see where Italian is studied.
What caught my attention, though, is the little boilerplate stuff about Laurentian University. It has "a policy of passive English/French bilingualism as a condition of tenure." Read on for more information.
Here's the job ad:
