Nigerian Universities and Colleges of Education in Penultimate Classes.
The attention of the general public, especially stakeholders: Vice
Chancellors, Deans and Heads of French Departments in Nigerian
Universities and authorities of other tertiary institutions that offer
degree and certificate in Education (NCE) programmes in French, is
hereby drawn to the 2013 Language Immersion Programmes at the Nigeria
French Language Village.
The Language Immersion Programme is an integral part of BA/BEd programme
as well as NCE Certificate in French, in Nigerian Universities and
Colleges of Education respectively. It is necessary at this point to
remind parents and all stakeholders that the Nigeria French Language
Village is the only institution accredited and duly certified by the
Federal Government to offer the mandatory Language Immersion Programme
(LIP) for undergraduates of French in their Penultimate classes.
To this effect, the Federal Government of Nigeria has consistently made
quality investment in the Nigeria French Language Village, to ensure
that not only is the Institution the nations inter-university centre for
French studies adequately staffed, requisite infrastructural and
logistics back-ups are also in place to provide the most rewarding fully
residential Language Immersion experience for prospective participants
from the nations institutions of higher learning. With the sustained
support of the French Government through its Embassy in Nigeria, the
Nigeria French Language Village disposes of the best and most current,
state-of-the art language teaching aids and audio-visual equipment that

upgrade their Language Immersion Programme from eight (8) weeks to
