French Language Teaching – Joint Consultative Committee 2017 [fr]
On Friday, February 17th 2017 the annual French Teaching Committee meeting took place at the Alliance Française in Accra.
This teaching project, created in 2003 by the military cooperation of the French Embassy with the Education department of the Ghanaian Army, allows officers to learn French in order to lead military operations in francophone countries. To date, six French language centers offer French lessons, with experienced Ghanaian teachers who were partially trained in France.
The annual French Teaching Committee meeting’s objectives were to report back the results of the year 2016 and then to propose new goals for 2017. During the year 2016, 116 students attended French lessons. With almost 92% of success rate for the DELF (Diploma for French Language Studies), teachers and students proved one more time their attachment and determination to an essential language on international military field.
During the meeting, LCOL Philippe COSTES, project leader, awarded the diploma of “best center 2016” to the Kumasi’s center for its excellent results in 2016. Indeed, thanks to its teacher John DOGBE, the center succeeded in registering 20 students to the “DELF” exam and performed the success rate to the exam with 100%. Congratulations!
