Ghanaians Must Study French


An Educationist on yesterday bemoaned the poor attitude Ghanaians attach to the study of the French Language. Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra, Mr Iddrisu Dimbie, Director, Centre of Languages and Professional Studies (CELPS) in Accra, said Ghanaians must consider French as equally important as English.

Mr Dimbie said for Ghana to be an integral part of the process towards integration in Africa, Ghanaians should strive towards understanding of the French Language so as to facilitate communication especially when "it is sandwiched by French Speaking countries."

"The commitment shown by francophone students towards the study of English Language should be emulated by Ghanaians in the study of French," he said.
Mr Dimbie, said since Ghanaians work, travel, interact and live in other francophone countries, it was important for them to consider the French Language as an important tool to effectively communication with their neighbours.
