French is the 10th language the most speaken in the world, with 130 Million people who speak it.


And this is still the diplomatic language : diplomats of the UN still use it for their work, and if I remember well, the major parts of the documents of the UN is written in French. Cool

il faut interroger la francophonie... mais ne pas la prendre au pied de la lettre car elle c'est un outil politique (elle défend les intérêts hexagonaux donc elle va avoir tendance à "en rajouter").

search this word "francophonie" with google

Stirling, Il n'est pas " how many is speaking french" ou "how many are speaking french". C'est "How many people speak French" (present simple). Je suis professeur d'anglais et Je suis anglais. Malheureuxment, Je ne connais bien le francais mais Je voudrais l'apprendre! Wink [/b]
