More than 1,500 events will take place during the week, involving 70 countries.
The theme of International Francophonie Day this year will be “The French language, connecting for action.”
French Language and Francophonie Week, coordinated by the Ministry of Culture, will highlight the role and use of the spoken word in society. 500 bookstores, dozens of associations, libraries, schools, universities, museums, theaters as well as hospitals will host events.
