Director-General of Nigeria-French Language Village, NFLV, Badagry, Lagos state, Prof. Raufu Adebisi, has said the institution was alive to its responsibilities to French language undergraduates from the nation’s universities.
According to him, “NFLV is leading in terms of academic and administrative personnel, infrastructure, academic content and qualitative output.’’
He said that the insinuation that the institution was not up-and-doing academically was outrageous.
“We are the best in Africa. I can’t understand why our students here will prefer to study French in another country. Many Nigerian undergraduates posted to this institution only go for more tutorials in neighbouring countries at their convenience.
“It is a surprise to me when I hear some heads of French departments in our universities say they prefer to send their students across our border for their immersion.
“We all know that language immersion or learning is neither a jamboree nor a mere excursion but an academic exercise with an academic content which must be met. Students that lobby to go for their immersion outside Nigeria do so for other motives which are more often than not, of an extra academic exercise,” Adebisi explained.
He however urged Nigerian universities that host Departments of French Language to always send their undergraduates to NFLV where they would be able to improve their proficiency in the language.
