Teaching the Romanian language and culture in Belgium

A programme set up by the French-speaking Community of Belgium allows pupils to learn their parents’ native language and culture

On the 14th of February 2008, the Partnership Charter 2008-2012 was signed in Brussels between the French–speaking Community of Belgium and the Republic of Romania relating to the organisation of lessons to acquire the native language and culture.

Recent migration patterns tell us that most pupils that are « so-called second generation Belgians » remain in the host country. That is why the French-speaking Community of Belgium wanted to develop an integration policy within the educational system.

The new partnership set up aims to improve the integration of the children of Romanian immigrants while safeguarding their original identity, a factor that is indispensable for the harmonious development of their personality.

The Native Language and Culture programme (LCO) sets out to promote self-confidence and to thus help all the children to acquire knowledge and skills that will set them in good stead for life-long learning and to take an active part in economic, social and cultural life.

This partnership will apply to infants, primary and secondary schools.

The teachers of the LCO programme will be appointed by the Republic of Romania, which will also provide the necessary funding.

These teachers will work in close cooperation with the Belgian educational teams within the school establishments subsidised by the French-speaking Community in line with their efforts in favour of “interculturality”.

The French-speaking Community for its part does everything in its power to facilitate the integration of young foreign nationals into the social tissue while respecting their specific characteristics.
