Department of French Language and Literature Organises the "Francophonie" Week

With the cooperation of The French Embassy in Jordan, the Department of French Language and Literature hosted the "Francophonie" Week, which included a series of ceremonies and activities held under the patronage of the Dean of the School of Foreign Languages, Professor Turki Bani-Khaled, and Mrs Hind Melkawi, representative of Campus France in Jordan. The celebrations commenced with a screening of French films on three consecutive days. This was followed by a writing workshop conducted by Dr. Isabelle Bernard at the French Corner. Dr. Bernard also arranged a literary meeting with Kuwaiti author Taleb Rifae, who has had three of his books translated into French. The celebrations concluded with staged performances and concerts, organised by students from the Department of French Language and Literature and coordinated by Lecturer Areej Nijem. It is worthy to note that celebrating the "Francophonie" Week has become a tradition at the University of Jordan, with the aim of introducing the French and "Francophonie" language and culture, as well as enhancing communication amongst different nations and cultures in the world.​
