XVIIème Sommet de la Francophonie – vive la Francophonie en Birmanie !

XVIIème Sommet de la Francophonie – vive la Francophonie en Birmanie !

XVII Francophonie Summit – Long live La Francophonie in Myanmar!   The 17th Francophonie summit will be held on October 11 and 12 in Yerevan, Armenia. The Conference of Heads of State and government of French-speaking countries is gathering around the theme: “Living together in solidarity, sharing humanistic values and respect for diversity: a source of peace and prosperity for the Francophone world”. It will adopt a Francophonie strategy for the promotion of equality between women and men, rights and the empowerment of women and girls. Do you know the Francophonie in Myanmar?: 2,300 people taking French courses, half in international schools and universities, the other at the Institut Français de Birmanie in Yangon and the French Cultural Center in Mandalay. In addition, 1,200 guides, doctors, non-governmental and international organization staff and other Francophones use the French language every day. Nearly 1,000 French people, registered at the Consulate of the French Embassy in Yangon, live in Myanmar and at least as many French-speaking expatriates. With more than 150 students and a rapid growth of its international and Burmese staff, the Joseph Kessel International French High School in Yangon is a leading institution in the development of the Francophonie in Myanmar. Our actions in favor of the Francophonie in Myanmar aim to strengthen the place of French in the Myanmar education system, particularly in science and technology courses, to broaden the learning of French in international schools, to support the ongoing reform of the education system by promoting medium-term learning of French as a second foreign language at school. We support the development of relations of  l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) with Myanmar universities that could integrate the AUF’s global network and benefit from the expertise and know-how of other members.  As a meeting place for Francophonie in the country, the Institut Français de Birmanie organizes annual family friendly and quality events, on the occasion of the International Day of Francophonie (March 20). The Institut Français de Birmanie and the French Cultural Center in Mandalay offer modern pedagogical tools and offer an international certification of language skills (DELF / DALF). Joseph Kessel International French High School in Yangon is a partner institution of the French Teaching Agency Abroad and complies with French national education programs, adapted to promote plurilingualism. The lessons are taught in French and in English. Schooling is sanctioned by the French diploma of the baccalaureate, which is internationally recognized. It gives access to the university in France, in all Europe and in most countries of the world (including for example the United States, Great Britain or Singapore). Registrations are still possible for the current school year. For more information, follow us...
