Summary
Like the Eiffel Tower, the French consider their mother tongue a historical monument - and the languages beyond France's borders indispensable tools. This program spotlights the Dicos d'Or "Golden Dictionaries" national dictation contest while profiling an Alsatian electrician who goes to work each day in Germany. The video also features everyday people who talk about languages besides French that they know and demonstrate some gestures that commonly accompany the spoken word.
