Semaine de la Langue Française en fête - French Language Week
All over Wallonia and Brussels
Rediscover the French language, its subtleties and its beauty. Various events invite you to play with French. All over from 15 to 23/03/14.
Creators, associations, libraries, cultural centres, schools, councillors, wordsmiths all come together and offer you:
- Concerts and theatre,
- Exhibitions, games and competitions,
- Conferences and various activities (radio shows...),
- In short, a host of activities to do with the French language!
The 10 words chosen by the French speaking world will be revealed soon!
Every year, 10 words are chosen by the week-long festival's French-speaking partners (France, Switzerland, Quebec, The International Organisation of La Francophonie and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation).
These 10 words have been chosen from a pool of foreign words that were borrowed from French, to show the reach of our language and what it gives to its speakers.
Language games will aim to catch you in the web! Play, vote: there will be books to win!
