“We designed the site in such a way that the articles are written in simple, easy-to read French and for the expressions that we might think difficult for the beginner-learner, a note follows to explain those words,” she revealed.
Also commenting on the site, Tanimomo Oluseun, the site Administrator said “there is need for one Nigerian Web site by Anglophones who went through the rigors of learning French as a second language and as adults.
