FROM: THE DIGNITY OF A FRENCH TEACHER: CELEBRATING PROF. JULIE AGBASIERE

The issue of identity seems to have taken the form of a mirage with the continuous influx of foreign languages into the developing world. Despite the heterogeneous linguistic situation itself, the continent has always been open to foreign languages as a means of effective communication between peoples and cultures both within and outside the continent.

It also explores ways in which the African can maintain his/her cultural identity in spite of foreign influence.
