French teachers play a key role in the IFLE Program. In each country, between 5 and 10 pilot schools have been selected to offer the DELF exam, in July 2020, to their FORM 3 students. The French teachers from these schools have been or are about to be certified as DELF examiners, in order to be able to prepare their students to the exam, and then correct the exam itself.
But they will also benefit from other types of support from the IFLE Program, such as online training, additional resources, and textbooks dedicated to prepare the students.
St Lucia was the first country to receive those textbooks. Here are a few pictures of the Curriculum Officer, Mr Leonard Robinson, handing the books to the teachers.
In St Lucia, around 700 students are expected to take the exam in July, for both A1 and A2 levels. Our goal is to have between 1000 and 2000 candidates in the region. If they continue to learn French up to the B2 level, they will then be able to further their studies in a French territory or in mainland France.
