More students learning French

  • SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT

Nearly 60 boys and girls are attending the French classes that began at St. Joseph's College at Devegiri on Thursday.
St. Joseph's College is the only college under Calicut University where French language is taught.
“The students are very enthusiastic about learning French,” says Dr. Jitendra Sharma, head of Department of French.
“Learning French helps students get a better job. As a result of globalisation, employees these days have to interact with nationals of France, Germany and other countries. Having proficiency in French enhances chances of getting lucrative jobs in reputed multinational companies. The increase in the number of students proves this language is gaining popularity among students. This year, around 90 students have taken French as optional language at the graduation level. With this, 125 students are learning French at the college,” Dr. Sharma said.
Well-known French films are regularly screened at the department. All lessons are taught with the help of audiocassettes, through the communicative methodology. Students participate in French song competitions which are regularly organised with the help of Alliance Francaise.
Seminars, film shows and poster exhibitions are organised in collaboration with the French embassy. French nationals also visit the department and interact with students.
The department has brought all French students of Calicut University under the banner of “French Students' Club”. They can join the Yahoo! Group http://in.groups. yahoo.com/group/ Frenchclubofkeralagroup/. They publish their articles, poems and other creative works in the French club's magazine Bonjour Devagiri.
These students can pursue higher studies in French in any Indian university. Dr. Sharma participates in national and international French seminars and conferences. He is an active member of various academic and administrative bodies. As an executive member, he represents Kerala in the Association of Indian Teachers of French.
Providence Women's College in the city has a number of French students. Some of them study hotel management, travel and tourism and computer science courses with French as optional language. But in the absence of a full-time teacher, these students have to depend on private tuitions.



French flavour for Kozhikode too
Special Correspondent
KOZHIKODE: Kozhikode residents will have a feel of the Festival of France in India though the city is not an official venue for the event, according to Brigitte Maury, Project Manager of Lycee Francais of Puducherry, one of the oldest French academic institutions, functioning in 152 countries.
Ms. Maury, who is in the city to attend a programme organised by the Department of French at St. Joseph’s College, Devagiri, said an exhibition and film screening would be arranged in the city during the Festival of France.
These were meant to give the city residents a flavour of French culture and arts in response to the enthusiastic response of students here to learn French, Ms. Maury pointed out.
Events during festival
Ms. Maury said the programmes in the city could be organised by Jitendra Sharma, Head of the Department of French in St Joseph’s College.
“Bonjour India” comprises 100 events to be staged at 18 cities across the country from this month till February 2010.
It features about 250 artists, designers, researchers and entrepreneurs.
“It is France’s most significant rendezvous with India…. It will reflect the richness of Indo-French friendship,” said Ms. Maury. There will be exhibitions, concerts, literary and cinematographic events, artistic meets, debates and conferences.
Education scene
Ms. Maury visited St. Joseph’s College and spoke on the opportunities for higher education offered by French institutions across the world. There is a special course in sciences in Puducherry for English-speaking Indian students. Students from standard VIII are selected through a test and interview. After four years, the students will acquire ‘Baccalaureat Scientifique,’ an internationally recognised qualification. A majority of the teachers of the school are from France. The French government offers various scholarships for deserving candidates.
Students’ works
On the occasion, she released ‘Bonjour Devagiri!’ the journal of French Students’ Club, containing articles and poems by French students. Fr. Mathew Baby Kalarickal, Principal of the college, presided.
Dr. Jitendra Sharma welcomed the audience.
Later, Ms. Maury visited Devagiri CMI Public School and was welcomed by Fr. John Mannarathara, Principal.

Je suis très heureuse de partager la langue française avec des amis de culture hindoue.Moi aussi, j'aime l'Inde.

Je suis heureuse,Jitendra, de constater que quelque part encore dans le monde,le français a toujours ses lettres de noblesse.Je te remercie pour tout ce que tu fais sur facebook pour promouvoir ce patrimoine.

Merci à tous et en particulier à Jitendra de promouvoir ainsi notre langue. Mais je pense les français eux-mêmes ne font pas assez d'efforts en ce sens.Je suis effarée par toutes les fautes d'orthographe lues sur Facebook ou sur Twitter.Ce n'est pas un exemple pour ceux qui se donnent la peine d'apprendre notre belle langue qui est aussi notre patrimoine.
