What do you like about this subject?

Learning / teaching a language aims to the understanding of different cultures. French is "me", my background, my way to connect with the world. Talking about French, international, standard or regional, is sharing a part of the world we live in.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Help as many people as I can. Go beyond the scope of linguistics and know the interests of learners of the French language, culture, history and way of life ...

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The Organization of the Francophonie, the organization comprises 56 member states and governments, 3 associate members, and 14 observers.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

AH! The way people in TV shows try to speak French. Sometimes, I have to read the close-captioning to understand what they say!
