Why Learn French in Africa?
Learning French in Africa is an excellent option if you want to make development in Africa part of a long term career.
There are over thirty French speaking countries in Africa. Far fewer development professionals speak French than English. By learning French you are greatly increasing your options for development related work in Africa. Not only is it an advantage, it is normally required for development work with the United Nations, Medecins Sans Frontieres, & The Red Cross in Francophone Africa and Haiti.
French proficiency combined with development experience in African communities is an invaluable asset.
