MASERU — The French Embassy on Wednesday handed over 3 000 textbooks to Education Minister ’Makabelo Mosothoane to boost the teaching of French in schools. The donation included books to guide teachers on how to teach the language. Speaking at the handover ceremony in Maseru, French Embassy acting Counselor for Cooperation and Cultural Actions, Pierre Lemonde, said the textbooks were for senior secondary education level one and two.

The books will be distributed to 11 schools that are offering French classes. Some of the schools include Soofia English Medium School in Butha-Buthe, Nulis High School in Roma and Pope John High School. “Last year, 3 000 textbooks were handed over for Form A students, and this year, 3 000 textbooks are to be used in the senior second education in Form D,” Pierre said. He said the books will enhance students’ knowledge of French. “With qualifications in French one’s career can be in translation and interpretation, teaching in schools and universities, tourism, diplomatic services and more,” he
said.
Speaking at the occasion, Minister Mosothoane said three schools — Soofia English Medium School, Nulis High School and Pope John High School – put the books to good use and outperformed the rest of the schools and attained high marks in French language last year. “Last year, out of 11 schools studying French, three schools namely, Soofia English Medium School, Nulis High School and Pope John High School, outperformed all other schools attaining a 100 percent mark in French language, seven schools managed to get results of 92 percent and one school had a 20 percent mark,” Mosothoane said.

Camille Perdereau, Director of Alliance Francaise, said 21 000 students were currently studying French in 200 high schools in South Africa and Lesotho. At least 513 students sat for international Junior Certificate examinations in 2010.
The French Embassy said the donation was part of France’s cooperation with Africa adding the donation seeks to strengthen the relationship between France and French speaking countries worldwide.

    To hell with this French Government, all they are interested in is to promote French language and culture in Lesotho and the rest of Africa, they should listen to our needs as country and support our development goals not this. They are still in the colonial era!
    I have never heard French Government supporting either water, SANITATION, good gorvenence, infrastructural, fight against Coruption, HIV/AIDS and other projects which are Lesotho priorities.

    To be able to speak another language helps, especially in tourism and diplomatic relations, so I do welcome help what ever it may be. I always find it annoying when I find myself not being able to speak a word of French? I have had embarrassing moments! It is not as if we have not known about AIDS for decades, why Basotho people are still dying of aids is beyond believe! It is only 3,000 books not a fortune, so I would suggest you go ask your member of parliament what they have done to stop corruption? Have they given any jobs to members of their family and how much they earn?

    I enjoy what you guys are up too. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the very good works guys I’ve added you guys to our blogroll.

    Hello I am so delighted I found your web site, I really found you by mistake, while I was researching on Yahoo
    for something else, Nonetheless I am here now
    and would just like to say thank you for a marvelous post and a all round entertaining blog (I also
    love the theme/design), I don’t have time
    to read through it all at the minute but I have bookmarked
    it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot
    more, Please do keep up the fantastic job.

    Admiring the time and effort you put into your blog and detailed
    information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the
    same out of date rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google
    account.
    Hola! I’ve been reading your web site for a while now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!
    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?
    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using?
    I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any recommendations?
    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between user friendliness and visual appearance.

    I must say you have done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for
    me on Opera. Superb Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back
    to your weblog? My blog is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly
    benefit from some of the information you provide here. Please let me
    know if this alright with you. Thanks!
    Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve
    loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
    then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Thank you, I appreciate it!
    Superb website you have here but I was curious about if
    you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about here?

    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!
    Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Thanks for your time!
    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice methods and we are looking to trade solutions with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a
    author for your site. You have some really good posts and I feel I
    would be a good asset. If you ever want
    to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Kudos!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Awesome blog!
    Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos
    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The
    reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if
    this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Cheers
    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the web without my authorization.

    Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen?

    I’d really appreciate it.
    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.
    Hello! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely
    enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and brilliant design and style.
    Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely
    overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Cheers!
    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for
    about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
    can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help
    would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot
    you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most
    certainly donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse
    your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the
    information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .
    . I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, great blog!
    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested
    feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Excellent blog by the way!
    Right now it appears like Expression Engine is the top blogging
    platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
    Wonderful post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit
    more. Many thanks!
    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m
    having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
    Hi! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new project in
    a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on.

    You have done a extraordinary job!
    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but
    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Hi there! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and
    your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable
    for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create
    your theme? Excellent work!
    Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

    Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be
    book-marking and checking back frequently!
    Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks
    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but
    I never seem to get there! Thank you
    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my
    own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it
    Hello there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead
    and bookmark your site to come back down the road. Many thanks
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

    Plz reply as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks a lot
    Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic
    but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Great choice of colors!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of
    the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but
    I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Hi are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m
    starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m
    definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new
    posts.
    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?
    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
    not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.

    Many thanks!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
    Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the superb work!
    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say superb blog!
