English: The French language in the world
  Regions where French is the main language
  Regions where it is an official language
  Regions where it is a second language
  Regions where it is a minority language

The following things have been changed from the old "Map-Francophone World.PNG":

  • Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos are no longer colored in light blue, this is because French is not used there very much these days.
  • Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia have been colored light blue, because the French language is widely used. There are even more French speakers in those countries where French is the official language.
  • The Western Sahara has been colored light blue, due to the increased use of French there.
  • A green square has been added in London to recognize the French-speaking minority there.

To be modified :

The status of French language in Africa depends on the country. For instance in Senegal French is not always used in the street and the status of official language fits well whereas in Gabon this is the only used language, except for the eldest between people of a same ethnie so in Gabon the French is the main language.

  Deuxième langue
  Minorités francophones

Les choses suivantes ont été modifiées de l'ancien "Map-Frncophone World.PNG":

  • Le Viêt-nam, le Cambodge et le Laos ne sont plus coloriés en bleu clair, car la langue française n'y est plus beaucoup utilisée aujourd'hui.
  • Le Sahara Occidental a été colorié en bleu clair, en raison de l'augmentation de l'usage du français dans la région.
  • Un point vert a été ajouté à Londres pour reconnaître la minorité de langue française là-bas.

Proposition de modification :

L'usage de la langue française est divers dans les pays d'Afrique subsaharienne. Par exemple, le français n'est pas la langue utilisée par défaut dans les rues sénégalaises. Tout au contraire, prétendre que le français n'est pas la langue maternelle des Gabonais reviendrait à dire que le français n'était rien de plus qu'une langue officielle dans la Bretagne des années cinquante. Ne connaissant pas la situation des autres pays, je laisse le soin à toute personne motivée de corriger cette erreur.
