The Ambassador of France to Ghana, Anne Sophie Ave has assured of her country’s commitment to assist Ghana in enhancing the teaching and learning of the French language at various level of its education especially at the basic level.

“We have to work on tools and develop it, to improve the way of teaching of French, you all know Alliance Francaise but we can do more” she said when she paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament in Accra.

According to her, the reason young people speak very well English in countries such as Denmark, is because they watch films and cartoons even when they cannot read and is vital to inculcate that culture at a tender age.

On the friendship group between Ghana and France’s Parliament, the French Ambassador stated “There are things we can also learn from a brand new parliament, twenty five years is still very young, but it has not come from nowhere, you have looked around did not come from nowhere, you have inspired your constitution [you have looked at the Americas, Brits and eventually you have found your own way].

We will be very happy to share with you our ups and downs” she added.

The French envoy assured of her willingness to ensure that more French legislators come to Ghana to learn and share experiences.

On his part, Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye expressed appreciation about France’s willingness to assist Ghana.

He disclosed that he has approved a visit of the minority leader to France to interact with leadership of the French parliament and seek ways of collaborating with Ghana’s.
