Please join us for a luncheon on Saturday, January 26th, at 11:30 a.m., to honor this year’s scholarship recipients at the Field Club, 3615 Woolworth Avenue. Each year a select group of high school students are awarded $500 to further their language studies at the college level.

Our honored speaker will be Franck Tucker Ebang, who will speak on the following topic:

The French Language and Cross-Cultural Communication across Africa

In his presentation, Mr. Ebang will show how the French language became a catalyst for greater intercultural exchanges and integration in Francophone Africa. He will shed light on the different variances of spoken French in parts of these African countries and how the various cultures influence the way French is spoken in those countries.
