Brief History of the French language
French, a Romance language, is the mother tongue in many countries. It is primarily spoken in France, from which it originates (“Langue d’Oïl”), Belgium (in Wallonie and Brussels), a number of provinces in Canada (namely Quebec, but also Ontario, Manitoba and New Brunswick), Monaco, Luxemburg (where it is one of the country’s three official languages) and Switzerland (where it is one of the country’s four official languages).
In 2005, a study counted 175 million French speakers worldwide. French is also the second most important language in the world in terms of international negotiations.
Vancouver, British Columbia, is a West Canadian seaport city.
The city is home to 2.4 million inhabitants (2012). It is the 3rd largest agglomeration in Canada (after Toronto and Montreal) and the economic capital of British Colombia. Although English is the main language spoken there, Vancouver has the 3rd biggest Chinese community in North America after New York and San Francisco. Many Chinese from Hong Kong came to Vancouver after Hong Kong was returned to China by the United Kingdom on July 1, 1997.
