Semaine de la langue française 2021

To celebrate the French language and francophonie, Belgium, Canada, France and Switzerland in Zimbabwe are offering a program of free online events from March 15 to 20, 2021.
We would have preferred to organize these events in “face-to-face” but unfortunately the health context does not allow us to do so.
Our intention is to try to share, even virtually, what brings us together in our differences, namely the French language of course, but also multilingualism for some, cultural diversity for all and our common values.
Each day will present a theme to help you discover what the Francophonie in Zimbabwe is and what it can bring to Zimbabweans. http://semainelanguefrancaise.com/
