ON BEHALF OF FRANCOPHONIE CELEBRATIONS WE INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE AND WIN EXCITING PRIZES.
AGE: 3 TO 18 YEARS
DATE: 19TH MARCH
Francophonie, sometimes also spelt Francophonia in English, is the quality of speaking French. It is not to be confused with the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, sometimes also informally called “la Francophonie”. The term designates the ensemble of people, organisations and governments that share the use of French on a daily basis or/and as administrative language, teaching language or chosen language.
La Francophonie as it is now known can be defined as the world community of French-speaking countries, or the collective unit formed by French-speaking people. In Francophonie: Purism at the International Level, Brian Weinstein describes it this way:
Francophonie is an international language movement led by government and non government elites in over thirty countries where French is official or used by a significant population. The maintenance and extension of a standard spoken and written French language purified of unacceptable English language borrowings and local idiosyncrasies is one general goal. The other is the maintenance and extension of French as an official or co-official language (Weinstein 1989, 53).
Worldwide there are more than 150 million Francophones
Le Lycee is happy to conduct Fete de la Francophonie on 19th March 2017.
