His Excellency Sylvain Berger this morning took time to attend an online French class with students of the Alliance Française de Lusaka. Speaking in both English and French, the ambassador also interacted virtually with each student, asking and answering questions posed to him.
Asked how he feels about Zambia, Ambassador Berger was kind to share that he finds the people and Zambia’s tourist sites a “magnifique”. Before leaving the students as class was in session, the ambassador encouraged students to pursue French seriously as almost half of the continent of Africa speaks and trades French.
Sylvain Berger, Counsellor of Foreign Affairs, was nominated French Ambassador to the Republic of Zambia on 4 September, 2017.
