This effort marks a supported undertaking to establish a francophone presence in Nigeria, but the country's geographic proximity to francophone countries called…

Le développement des classes bilingues dans les écoles publiques va de pair avec celui des entreprises françaises

A New York, de plus en plus d'employés de grandes banques, d'entreprises high-tech, de cosmétiques, d'assurance ou de la restauration ont la chance de scolariser leurs enfants dans les programmes bilingues des écoles publiques de la ville. Ces programmes existent grâce à un effort collectif et des partenariats privés et publics.
