French language and cultural exchange prospers in SA


South Australian teachers and students will continue to benefit from programs focusing on French language and intercultural learning following the renewal of an agreement between the State and French Embassy.

The four-year Memorandum of Understanding was signed today by Education Minister Susan Close and French Ambassador to Australia His Excellency Christophe Lecourtier.

The arrangement now includes a commitment to explore reciprocal teacher exchange arrangements through the French Government’s Jules Verne program, and participation in a Language Teaching Assistants program.

Renewing the MoU will also enhance South Australia’s attractiveness as a destination of choice for international students.

The Department for Education and Child Development has collaborated with the Embassy of France on the delivery of French language programs to schools since 1986.

Today’s agreement supports South Australia’s growing partnership with France as it continues to gain strength across a number of areas following the announcement of the construction of Australia’s 12 future submarines by French company DCNS.
