The CIAFE Language Centre

The Language Centre initiative by CIAFE was created to contribute to breaking language barriers globally. Under this initiative, CIAFE has been able to put out two virtual classes, the French Class and the Portuguese class which have been tremendously beneficial to the attendees of the class allowing us to keep realising our goal of teaching people in different languages to help bridge the language barrier gap in communicating with other African countries and other countries.

CIAFE LANGUAGE CENTRE PARTICIPANTS TESTIMONIALS

Language is the most direct connection to other cultures. Communicating in another language exposes us to and fosters an appreciation for the traditions, religions, arts, and history of the people associated with that language. Greater understanding, in turn, promotes greater tolerance, empathy, and acceptance of others.
