French and Arabic courses in Oman
We had the pleasure of meeting the Director and the team of the Centre Franco-Omanais (CFO) in Muscat during our amazing trip to the Sultanate of Oman in April 2017.
The Director, Mr Christian ADAM de VILLIERS and the pedagogical Director, Mr Damien JEAN-MARIE, run this language and cultural center with a dozen French and Omani citizens. Most of them are French as a Foreign Language teachers and also deal with the administrative tasks.
The CFO has worked under both the Omani Ministry of Education and the Embassy of France in Oman since 1979, organising French and Arabic courses and all sorts of cultural activities, thus promoting French culture and French-Omani relationships.
As everywhere else during our trip, we received a very warm welcome and we were told that the CFO was looking for French schools in France which could organise some immersion stays for their Omani or expat students!
We thus hope that this very interesting meeting will soon turn into a long-term partnership!
