SIX primary school teachers from Wallis and Futuna are in the country to share their culture and French language with local counterparts and students.

They are in Suva for a two-week in-country immersion program where they visited some primary schools in the Capital City.

The program is facilitated by the Embassy of France through the Alliance Française and the French Ministry of Education in Wallis and Futuna. It involves total immersion in an English-speaking environment, as well as observation and participation in a local school.

Group spokeswoman Charlotte Lelevai expressed their enthusiasm about the program. "We are very excited to be here in Fiji and want to learn as much as we can so that we can go back and share our experiences with staff and students at home," Mrs Lelevai said. As part of France's policy of encouraging integration in the Pacific, several groups from the French territories have visited Fiji to undertake English immersion via internships.
