A successful linguistic action: DELF Junior organised for the first time in march at the French Institute, Nigeria
The French Institute of Nigeria, located in Abuja, organized for the first time in March the examination of Diploma of French Language Studies for students of secondary schools: the DELF Junior. Until 2011 only two sessions were organized per year, in June and December. The session of March has been a real success for the Institute since more than hundred students of FCT secondary schools registered for it.
On March 6th and 7th 2012 the French Institute of Nigeria welcomed hundred and ten students in its facilities for the examination of DELF Junior A1, A2 and B1. Approximately ten schools of the capital Abuja were represented.
Since the end of 2011, the French Institute has started a real linguistic action in the Nigerian capital. For the exam in March there were as many students registered as for the two last sessions of June and December (together) attesting to this session’s success. It demonstrates the strong interest of schools, teachers and students for French language. This action continues to be done in many schools of Abuja to promote the DELF exam, to exchange and discuss with French teacher, and to advise them on innovative methods in teaching French as a Foreign Language.
Furthermore following the growing demand of primary schools in Abuja and of parents having their children taking French classes at the Institute, a session of DELF Prim (Diploma for primary school’s students) shall take place there for the first time in April 2012.
