Francophone World Trivia

Le monde francophone


Le monde francophone refers to all the countries in the world where the French language is spoken. In the 17th century France began competing to colonize countries in the Americas, Africa, the Caribbean and Indochina. As new provinces and colonies were established, the French language and culture spread. While most of these countries have since regained their independence, aspects of the French language and culture are still very present. At Canoe Island French Camp we celebrate the rich and diverse cultures of the French speaking world during our third session. See how much you know about some of them!
