Below is an article published by: Somaliland Press
Officials from France’s embassy in Djibouti and members from France’s Senate Committee for Foreign Affairs on Thursday [19 March 2009] unveiled a new French language center in Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland.
The new center will become a point of contact between France and Somaliland, as well as breaking the communication barrier between the two people - Somalilanders traditionally learned Somali, Arabic and English.
It is not clear yet if the new center will follow the official French Program of the French Ministry of Education or that of Somaliland, however one thing is clear, France is showing key interest in Somaliland and wants to improve its image in the region.
