New Delhi, 30 May 17

Institut français India, the cultural service of the French Embassy, together with the International Center for Pedagogical Studies in Paris (CIEP) organised the 3rd 

Regional University BELC India, Central Asia and South Asia in Goa from 22-25 May 2017. The four-day training programme for French-language teachers was organised in collaboration with the Department of French and Francophone Studies at the University of Goa, in partnership with Goyal Publishers & Distributors.

The Regional University BELC is a highlight of the teaching of French as a foreign Language in India. The event took place in Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), Delhi in May 2015. The following year, it took place at Amity University Noida, Delhi. In 2017, it was decided that the BELC would take place in a different region every year. Goa University had been chosen, thanks to Prof. Varun Sahni, Vice-Chancellor, whose policy was to increase higher education cooperation with France.

This May, Goa University hosted 122 teachers from various backgrounds (Alliances Françaises, schools and universities) and from various countries, including India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan and Sri Lanka. Seven experts in didactics for the teaching of French as a Foreign Language supervised 30 hours of training to these teachers from schools and universities. The teachers were enrolled in different workshops, according to their specific needs: methodology, French for specific purposes, linguistic and cultural links, development of oral and written skills, literature, grammar, group interaction, etc. Institut français India also offered a programme of cultural activities, through visits to various locations and concerts in Goa.

The event proved to be a great success to teachers, and participants comments were as follows: “Very useful and efficient, in a friendly atmosphere”, “a wonderful experience”, “rewarding”, “also useful for the intercultural exchanges with teachers from other countries”, “very well organised”, “good opportunity to share ideas and experiences”, “rewarding”, “work with pleasure”, “I recommend!”, “my objectives have all been met”.

The main objective of the service for cooperation in French Language, Education and Training at Institut français India (IFI), as defined by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, is to promote and support French-language training in India by providing quality training for teachers. To this effect, pedagogical and linguistic workshops and seminars are organised throughout the country, in schools, universities and Alliances Françaises, at a national and regional level.

Through such cooperation the French Embassy aims to develop and enhance links between French and Indian schools and universities, to promote student mobility, and to increase students’ employability on the international labour market.
