Schools in France to offer Romanian language and culture courses starting this year

France becomes, starting this year, the seventh country in Europe where the optional course of Romanian Language, Culture and Civilization (LCCR) will be taught, the Romanian Ministry of Education announced.

Starting this autumn, students from three schools in Le Blanc-Mesnil, near Paris, will be able to study Romanian language, culture and civilization. 

In the first phase, there will be nine groups of students. The Ministry of Education estimates that 150 students will attend the Romanian language and culture courses.

“It is a first step, these are the first courses of this type in France, and I am convinced that others will follow,” said Luca Niculescu, the ambassador of Romania in France.

France joins the other six countries in which the LCCR program runs, namely Italy, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. In numbers, the program means 128 collaborators, 446 schools, 849 groups of students, and approximately 13,200 students.

The course is optional and is taught by qualified staff selected from the Romanian community. It is held two hours a week, free of charge. In addition to the classes, the teachers and students are involved in cultural activities, promoting Romanian culture and civilization in the educational environment and their communities.
