The French Institute in India and the Delhi Board of School Education signed a Memorandum of understanding on Monday for introducing the French language in Government schools of Delhi.
This Memorandum of understanding was signed in presence of Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Mr. Manish Sisodia and HE Emmanuel Lenain, the Ambassador of France to India.
As a part of this program, I will introduce prominent global languages to Delhi Government School.
The introduction of international languages like French will unlock new career opportunities for students in various fields and help them in building their careers professionally.
Exploring French Culture
According to Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Mr. Manish Sisodia learning the global language will not only entails skill acquisition but also help in understanding the Country’s culture.
Learning International languages can enhance the potential of every student, It will give an opportunity to students so that they can learn more about French culture and history.
Both India and French have taught each other forages in the field of trade, art, education, and culture through various collaborations. Hopefully, this will help students in learning the French language in the Government school of Delhi. This becomes the stronger reason for this tie-up.
Education Idea shared Between Delhi Govt and French Govt
Both Delhi Government and French Government reflect the same idea of education, as stated by HE Emmanuel Lenain, France’s ambassador to India.
Mr. Lenain also said that we support this because Delhi Government is serious about their policies that will help 1.5 million children in public schools. Among all the bilateral relationships, education is always in top priority.
Kids learning French in Delhi Government School help in changing their life. It will also open new academics and professional options for them.
30 DBSE Schools will be under this Programme
During the trial phase, 30 DBSE affiliated schools will be under this French language, and after that, it will be spread to other schools based on students’ desire to learn the language.
DBSE and Directorate Of Education will be assisted by IFI in training teachers and resourceful persons in communicating with the French language. In this collaboration, IFI also offers access to French cultural and academic platforms to students of Delhi Government School, told to DOE Director Mr. Himanshu Gupta.
I will also organize workshops, and seminars for students to inform them about all possibilities of studying at French universities and also about the scholarship program that will benefit the students.
