Celebrate International Francophonie Day!

Issue 99, March 2017.
While the word ‘Francophonie’ may sound like the name of a knock-off Gothic novel monster, it’s actually a term that refers to the diverse regions worldwide where people speak French. Spoken by 274 million people around the world, French is second only to English as the official language of most countries – 33 to be exact. It was French writer Onesime Reclus that first termed the term ‘Francophonie’ in the late 1880s, in reference to the global population of French speakers. An international Francophonie agency was established in 1970 to promote the language. Today, the International Organisation of La Francophonie continues to advocate for the unique linguistic and humanist value of the French language across the globe.
