    Background: A PARTY OF FRENCH TEACHERS HAS ARRIVED IN MALAWI TO HELP IN SPREADING THE FRENCH LANGUAGE IN THIS ENGLISH SPEAKING AFRICAN STATE.

    THE GROUP ARRIVED AT CHILEKA AIRPORT OUTSIDE BLANTYRE ON TUESDAY. (SEPTEMBER 27). THE FRENCH AMBASSADOR TO MALAWI, M. HENRI LANGLAIS, WAS THERE TO MEET THEN, AND MALAWI'S JUNIOR MINISTER OF EDUCATION, MR F. MINJE, WAS ALSO AT THE AIRPORT WITH A SPEECH OF WELCOME.

    A SPOKESMAN FOR THE TEACHERS, M. EDOURD WATTEZ, WHO COMES FROM PARIS, REPLIED ON BEHALF OF HIS COLLEAGUES AFTER M. LANGLAIS HAD SPOKEN BRIEFLY TO THE NEW-COMERS.

    THE AMBASSADOR SAID THE TEACHERS WOULD BRING THE CULTURE OF FRANCE TO A COUNTRY THAT HAD BRITISH TRADITIONS, AND BY DOING SO HELP AFRICANS TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER BETTER.

    M. WATTEZ SAID THAT HE HOPED THAT DURING THEIR TWO-YEAR STAY IN MALAWI THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COUNTRY AND HELP BRING ABOUT CLOSER CONTACT BETWEEN THE YOUNG REPUBLIC AND FRENCH-SPEAKING AFRICAN STATES, AS WELL AS WITH EUROPE.
