The French Embassy is committed to promote French language in Tanzania. Ambassador Frédéric Clavier has emphasized his will to support the Tanzanian educational system and encourage students to learn French. In this perspective, the cooperation between the Embassy and the Dar es Salaam University College of Education (DUCE) is strengthened by the implementation of a Koombook on the university premises.

The Koombook is a portable digital library developed by the French NGO Libraries Without Borders (BSF) with thousands of educational resources to learn French.

Its name comes from the Swahili word “kumbuka” which means “remember”.
This innovative technology represents an excellent opportunity for teachers to benefit from the most recent French language teaching tools in a context where access to new resources may be limited.

In addition, the Embassy has also provided DUCE with learning materials and equipment (ten tablets, a computer and a video projector) in order to make maximum use of the Koombook’s resources.

The Koombook is accessible to all French teachers and students in Dar es Salaam region and will therefore contribute to the dynamism of French language learning in the entire area.
It is the second Koombook offered by the French Embassy to Tanzanian educational institutions; the first has been implemented in Kigoma in September 2016.
