Francophones From Around the World [electronic resource]

10 Francs (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Filmed in some surprising locales - Madagascar and Mauritius, Cambodia and Japan, and Louisiana as well - this program looks at how French has been adopted and adapted in many corners of the world where it is not the official language. For these Francophones, speaking la belle langue française is a matter of tradition...and an affair of the heart.
