Podcast: Anglophone North Africa, with the British Council

In the second of the CMEC series of podcasts with the British Council, Charlotte Leslie discusses the growing prominence of the English language in francophone north Africa with Hamza Koudri, British Council Country Director for Algeria.

Speaking from Algeria, Hamza explains that English is becoming increasingly prevalent in north Africa - giving pupils and students access to greater opportunities and resources. But that does not mean it will replace French and Arabic in francophone north Africa. However, it is testimony to the growing hegemony of English as a dominant international language.
