About A-classes

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” -Nelson Mandela

A-classes is an eLearning platform entirely designed for migrants to improve themselves. The platform was developed from our research project into the presence of African migrants to northern Italy, between 1976 till date.

At the end of our current test phase, more than half of the classes will be offered free of charge to the migrant community, be you in Italy or anywhere else in the world.

After more than 5 years of hard work, doing interviews, gathering data and analyzing them, this is our restitution, a way of saying thank you to the migrant community.

You too can join the team. Become a volunteer today by dedicating few minutes of your time to help migrants improve themselves. See how you can support the project: How to Work With Us

Project Adviser

My qualifications, professional career path and area of expertise have placed me at the crossroads between language studies, literature, translation, anthropology and cinema, as evidenced by my publications, PhD supervision and external examinerships. A retired Professor from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (1972-1996), now UK-based chartered linguist, I have been teaching French language, literature, culture and translation (Igbo-English-French) in class and online at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, while pursuing an international research career in African Studies, focusing on Nigeria and Igbo language, culture & literature. My additional interest in intercultural encounters in literature and French literary background led to publications on francophone authors including Ousmane Sembene (Senegal), Dadie (Ivory Coast) and Goyemide (CAR); I have been the UK correspondent of the Senghor Foundation (Dakar) for twenty years after representing Nigeria in that role. In 2006, I started exploring the Nigerian film production and, while publishing on the linguistic and cultural impact of these films in Europe, I have also contributed chapters (in French and in English) in several books on the African cinema.
