For your company staff, we have specific professional courses adapted to the business world.

On the cultural side, here are the highlights of the programme: the francophonie week in March will include a creative writing workshop with a francophone writer, a closing concert, educational animations for students, and the second edition of “Goût de France/Good France”, to discover French cuisine and even have a French cooking lesson! The 4th French Education Fair will take place at the end of February in Abuja and in Lagos: a unique opportunity to meet representatives of French Universities and ask all your questions about studying in France. At the national scale, the French cultural network, composed of 10 Alliances Françaises (in Enugu, Ibadan, Ilorin, Jos, Kaduna, Kano, Lagos, Maiduguri, Owerri, Port-Harcourt) and of the Institute for African Research based in Ibadan, will continue to work together to offer nationwide events to the Nigerian public in 2017. First event: “My French Film Festival” a festival of French cinema at the end of February. The team of the Institut français wishes you a very happy new year, and is looking forward to meeting you at its events or in its classrooms! Arnaud Dornon, Director

Durant leur voyage, ils rencontrent les pionniers qui réinventent l’agriculture, l’énergie, l’économie, la démocratie et l’éducation...
