Francophone Spring 2022 with support of Embassy


Sabaudin Gabrani and Drita Pelinku are two of many schools in Tirana that offer bilingual teaching with a French component and where pupils study French from CE2 (Year 4).

In preparation for Francophone Spring, which is held every March, members of the management team and French teachers at these schools welcomed the Cooperation Attaché for French from the Embassy, Jean-Luc Puyau, supported by two trainee teachers of French as a foreign language:  Audrey Hoarau from Montpellier, who is currently doing her placement at the University of Tirana, and Maelle Ochoa, a student in Bordeaux who has joined the École Française International, Tirana (EFIT).

A common activities programme organised around the French language and Francophone cultures is currently ongoing, with a highly impressive uptake each year among pupils and teachers who are members of the Association of French Teachers in Albania.
