The Embassy of France in South Africa will host the “French, the language of employment” forum in the country’s 3 main cities - Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town - from April 15 to17.

The goal of the forum is to underscore the added value for young South African professionals of learning our language, in a context of increasing trade between South Africa and French-speaking regions. On this occasion, representatives from the Institut français, the Alliance française Foundation, the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the International Center for Educational Studies will present training programs focusing on French for professional purposes.

This event should bring together more than 350 participants, mainly from the business world, as well as representatives from the South African education and academic sectors.
