Subject: Evidence of French abilities
  My native language is English, as I am American. I know I am to write a letter explaining that. However, I am also a French teacher, have a BA in French, the DELF, but don´t feel like driving to Chicago to take the Canadian preferred test to show my ability. I don´t have to have the points to attain the magic number, but wish to obtain as many as possible to just be safe. Would a letter from a fellow French speaking (Belgian) teacher at my school attesting to my abilities help? Also, should that letter be written in French or Enlgish?

I would write a letter in french explaining your abilities. I would also provide a translation along with your transcript showing your academic standing in your french courses.

get a letter from school where you teach detailing what class you teach and what. Also attatch a copy of your syllabus (with detail of what you teach, books you use and method of teaching).

Hopefully this may help you aviod an interview.

keep in mind you are claiming points for a second language. keep it in mind in terms of your total points and put as much energy as you think is necessary to cement your 67-70 points.
