The myth of French fluency in the Ivory Coast

Most Ivorians cannot read or write in French. Many speak pidgin French (far fewer have a command of real French). I recommend reading Francophone Studies By Kamal Salhi. Click to enlarge:

Francophone Studies By Kamal Salhi.
A collection of studies of the experiences, portrayals and representations through the eyes of writers, dramatists, artists and policy makers based in French-speaking areas. The work covers:
-- the French influence in the Francophone world
-- cultural variation in Francophonia
-- interdisciplinary (aesthetics, language, culture & identity, history, etc..).
-- the 'cultural production' of Francophones.
-- relations between metropolitan France and its former colonies.
This is of interest to observers of the French language and seekers of information on culture, history and politics in francophone countries.
