Azerbaijan, Baku, July 12 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
The French National Institute of Oriental Languages and Cultures (INALSO) and Baku State University (BSU) will exchange specialists. The decision on this was made during the meeting in Baku between the rector of BSU
Abel Maharramov and the rector of INALSO Jacques Legrand, BSU press and information office told Trend.
During the meeting, Legrand told about the institute, which he heads, and added that the Institute of Oriental Languages and Cultures teaches 96 languages, and since 1999, also has been teaching Azerbaijani.
"Since the establishment of an official diploma, students have been learning the Azerbaijani language in the separate courses, and they had the opportunity to get a degree on this specialty. And the faculty of the Azerbaijani language was opened on November 7, 2008. We are interested in more rational teaching the Azerbaijani language. From this point of view, we attach importance to cooperation with the Baku State University," said Legrand.
Academician Abel Maharramov approved the suggestion of his colleagues and said that along with teaching the French language, the BSU has been teaching French literature for three years.
