Magali Forte

Modern Languages Department Head
Mulgrave School, West Vanouver
Magali Forte graduated as a teacher in the South of France. After getting her Bachelor in Spanish Literature and Civilizations and her Masters in English Literature, Linguistics and Civilization, she started teaching English as a Second Language in secondary schools in France. She was trained with the CEFR (Common European Framework for Languages) in France so it was exciting for her when she started teaching French as a Second Language in Vancouver, BC and realized that it was one of the new documents of reference for the Core French curriculum in BC. She is now teaching French at York House School, and also acting as the head of the Modern Languages Department. She is also completing her Masters in Education, more specifically focusing on teaching second languages in BC, at Simon Fraser University. At the moment, she is writing her thesis about online portfolios and second language skills.
