French is a language which originated from France. However, Nigeria is also bordered by francophone countries.
In “Handmaids”, French language is introduced to the pupils through the four basic language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Consistency is also ensured through regular school activities such as praying, singing the national anthem and reciting the national pledge in French language.
The school’s French club also engages the pupils in extra-curricular activities such as inter-school competitions and excursions in which pupils engage in quizzes, interactive songs, dialogue, drama and sightseeing to further improve their language skills.
