French Village like the name suggests is a village. It keeps u out of touch wit town n d original idea was dat d seclusion wld spur u 2 learn d language faster because u'd have no distractions but I dont think dey've acheieved their objectives. I speak dis way because I've been there as an undergraduate n as a post graduate n I'm not very impressed. Worst is d fact many of dem finish wit d so called diplomas n certificates n still come out wit little or nothing. I knw a girl who went there did a diploma n still came out 2 to join an elementary class in Alliance Française. I used 2 work in Alliance n I knw many of dem still go 2 Alliance. So may b u r better of at Alliance. But if u feel u need 2 get away 4rm home den may b u shld go there but in d long run u are better off Allinace Française.

i did a certificate programme at French Village last year as at then we paid 30,000 for tuition while full diploma students paid 80,000 and would stay for a period of 8months but with the certificate, you will stay for 3months and at your own convinence, go back for module 2 and later on or immediately go for your module 3 and then you will be awarded a diploma. So if you aint doing anything now, you can go for the diploma which is at a stretch.
The school is interesting but stressful, you must attend your classes and with the school id card, you could visit any Africa French speaking country without problemand you get to go for excursion in Benin Republic

yes like Mandora rightly pointed out. Alliance is a very good place for someone with little or no knowledge of French to learn both speaking and writing of the language. Alliance Francaise has branches in many states in Nigeria: Owerri, Jos, Kaduna, Kano, Port Harcourt, Lagos . Just the few I know. They also run a diploma course. All the best as you join us in the knowledge of French.

Mes amis vous parlez bien, AF is the best as I have some firends who passed thru French Village but now in AF starting from Elementary classes, in AF you will be thought how to read, write, speak, listen and understand simultaneously. My friends in French Village have spelling and conjugation problems even after their graduation.

I will advice you if you have time just go and register for an intensive program at AF and you will not regret any kobo spent there. By the way I AM IN B CLASS NOW.

J'espere voir vous
Re: Getting A Diploma At 'French Village' In Badagry? by eagleroland(m): 10:58am On Aug 01, 2007
Mes amis, je me present, je suis M. Olijo. Je parle et ecris Francais bien. But I need to have a deeper understanding of the language. AF has moved from the French Cultural Center on former Kingsway Road in Ikoyi. Where is it located now and what is the cost like for a Diploma?

God bless you.
Re: Getting A Diploma At 'French Village' In Badagry? by Tosbi(m): 6:59pm On Aug 02, 2007

I am immensely grateful and glad at the comments u guys gave, but i will like to know the contact info ( phone number, address & e-mail if available ), Tution fee and duration of study at AF. I will also like to know if the Diploma can also be used for Direct Entry into the university. Thanks
Re: Getting A Diploma At 'French Village' In Badagry? by imiari: 10:02pm On May 05, 2009
yeah tobsi. je suis etudiante de la langue francaise et j'ai decouvert qu'il vaut mieux d'aller dans un pays ou tout le monde parle francais. La ou ils ont le francais comme langue officielle. i was fortunate to spend some time in togo and france. for sum1 who thought she had difficulties in language assimilation, i picked up reall fast. go where they dont understand a word of english and you will be surprised. i guarantee you that. smiley

Hello All,

Can someone please provide answers to Tosby last question. Someone here is interested. Had already purchased form for the 3 months certificate course in NFLV and registration is to commence next week. Adequate information will assist in considering whether to register with NFLV or not.

Thanks.

a mon avis, je crois que les ecoles francaise comme french village et alliance francaise n'ont pas les information que nous voulons comme le numero portable, je crois que ons preferonts que nous viendrais a la son office pour gagne les informations wink. alors il dois que si nous voulons les informations, nous allons en ba nous memes . si'l vous plaites, si je n'ecrire bien le langue, ne hesitate pas me corrigues ca faites longues temps. merci mes amis grin

well, alliance francaise is pretty good. I learnt everything there. They have centres in Alagomeji- opp Gtbank, Ikeja- inside ikj pry sch premises and Ikoyi, Ruxton Road- opp home science. Their fees have increased over the years, but it is value for your money. Get your foundation there and then go any where else. As for the lady who asked for kids enrolment, yep, they do summer stuff for kids @ alliance.

Adamiracle, AF charges has increased in Lagos. I love the study though, I started mine in Jos. It's bn awesome so to say. But right now, I'm taking an adventurous trip to Benin and hopefully to continue studying there so that the french speaking will flow. Keep in touch. Here's my +234 812 158 1589, 706 324 4200 n princeiroka@yahoo.com. Au revoir!!

Re: Getting A Diploma At 'French Village' In Badagry? by Nnanna1: 10:44am On Jul 29, 2010
Adamiracle, here in lagos there's basically 3 AF's centres situated at Ikeja, Yaba n Ikoyi. One thing is good to note though, they charge based on there vicinity, you should know what I mean. Ikeja charges based on durations. When you enroll for a regular program, that's Mondays - Fridays (8am - 1pm), the fees now is N30 000 and it covers for materials & registration. Three times in a every week costs about N17 to 19 000. While, a day class in a week (that should be on Saturdays) costs about N5 to 9 000. Please note, these charges covers the duration of your program which runs for like 3weeks.

Keep in touch!

C'est Nnanna
Au revoir.

Friends, I will speak english for the sake of those that are yet to understand French well. The aim of French is for you to be able to speak while you know as well to write. And to know how to speak, you have to get use to listening to the language because the more you listen the easy it becomes. For me, I'm no more afraid of french.

Now, to help yourself, you need this AUDIO MATERIAL. It's everything you need to know in French language learning. It's not just French but it is English guided. For example, if you want to say: 'I would like to eat the same thing' it gives you: 'Je voudrais manger la meme chose'.

It is self explanatory. French made easy: it's a 436MB size Audio Material of 82hrs playing time. It's all electronically formated and can play on your Laptops, Compact Disc, DVD's, MP3's, iPod's and lots of them. It's in downloadable form.

With it, you can learn how to speak French with entering a class room.

It will only cost you #10, 000 (Ten Thousand Naria Only) for a pack. Contact me on: +234 706 324 4200.

Bonnee Journee!
