Ten teachers who have contributed to developing French language at high schools received Valofrase awards at a ceremony held by the Ministry of Education and Training and the International Organisation of La Francophonie in Hanoi on December 30.

The awards also went to 50 outstanding students who earned high scores on Group D3 of literature, mathematics and French language during the 2013 university entrance exam and won prizes in the national academic competitions as well.

This was the recognition of the efforts made by the teachers and students as well as the attention paid by local authorities to the teaching and learning of French.

The awarding ceremony was part of the Valofrase project, which helps promote French language in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.-VNA
