Graduation Ceremony for the First Dufle Graduate Teachers in Pakistan
The Alliance Française de Karachi, as a part of its program to promote cultural exchanges and training of French as a Foreign Language teachers, organizes a graduation ceremony for its first batch of graduate teachers in Pakistan.
Thanks to the Embassy of France in Pakistan, 11 Pakistani and French teachers have received funding for this training.
