According to wholevehicles, Burkina Faso is a landlocked country located in the western region of Africa. It is bordered by six countries: Mali, Niger, Benin, Togo, Ghana and Ivory Coast. The capital of Burkina Faso is Ouagadougou. The geography of Burkina Faso is dominated by its vast semi-arid plains. This region is characterized by its flat terrain and low elevation with an average height of 500 meters above sea level. Rainfall in this region is very limited but the country does receive some rain during the summer months from June to September. The northern part of Burkina Faso features some hills and mountains with the highest peak being Tenakourou at 749 meters above sea level. Burkina Faso has an extensive educational system that includes both public and private institutions throughout the country. Primary education begins at age 6 or 7 (depending on when a student starts school) and lasts for 8 years while secondary school covers grades 9 through 12 lasting up to 4 or 5 years depending on whether a student opts for a vocational or academic track upon graduation. Higher education includes universities as well as technical colleges offering specialized degrees in areas such as medicine or engineering. The government provides free primary and secondary education to all citizens as well as free textbooks for students in primary school up until grade 9. In addition to this there are several scholarship programs available from both public institutions as well as private companies offering financial assistance to students who wish to pursue their studies abroad or within Burkina Faso itself at one of its universities such as University of Ouagadougou or University of Bobo Dioulasso. The government also places great emphasis on French language proficiency with French being taught from primary school onwards with additional classes offered during secondary school if necessary. This focus on French language proficiency has enabled many students who have graduated from tertiary institutions within Burkina Faso or abroad to find employment either locally or internationally due to their ability to communicate effectively in French.
