French in Africa: A Guide to the Teaching of French as a Foreign Language. Unesco Source Books on Curricula and Methods.
This series is designed to provide educators in a number of fields with information based on international experience. The intention is to suggest ways of improving the effectiveness of administrators and the performance of teachers and pupils. This guide was the result of a meeting of educators from organizations supported by UNESCO to teach French in the English-Speaking countries of Africa. The chapters are organized as follows: (1) survey of existing framework--gives the institutions at all educational levels which in some way deal with French, secondary schools receiving the bulk of the attention; (2) general principles--explains the principles on which the organization of the various curricula is founded; (3) stage 1, beginners; (4) stage 2, intermediary; (5) stage 3, advanced; the syllabus for each of the three stages is examined in detail; (6) annotated list of available course books; (7) examinations and tests; and (8) teacher training and keeping up to date. Following the bibliography, an appendix lists addresses of cultural and educational centers and associations dealing with French in English-speaking Africa. (TL)
