They have also published their papers in learned journals of both local and international on yearly basis. In the department, students of 200L of the NCE go for a two to three month acculturation programme in the republic of Benin or Nigerian French language village Badagary and likewise the three hundred level (300L) of the undergraduate students.

3. OBJECTIVE OF THE DEPARTMENT

    The principal objective of learning French in Nigeria is to facilitate the communication and integration with our Francophone Neighbours since good number of African countries share boundaries with Nigeria. The knowledge of French for the Nigerian will also widen the social-economic, political and cultural links that we have with all other Francophone countries of the world.

Thus, the study of French at NCE level will aid:

·        To promote teachers of character who can rib off on the students in terms of desirable values, morals, interest and attitudes as a prelude to becoming responsible and disciplined citizens.

·        Formation of competent French teachers for the primary and basic secondary school.

·        Exposure of these students-teachers to the social, cultural and political life of the Francophone African people and world at large.

·        To continue to smoothen the chain of amity between Nigerian citizen and their francophone neighbours.

·        To facilitate the economic transactions between Nigeria and her immediate and distant francophone neighbours.

·        To initiate the students to research and involve in the series of deeper studies.

·        These objectives, in our opinion can as well help for the promotion of better understanding of African Literature of French expression.

Every human being cannot do without language since language is the only weapon for communication, ideas and stimulating learning. Thus, every teacher’s language fluency and communication competence.
