Collection Spotlight: Le mois de la francophonie: mars 2024

The term “Mois de la Francophonie” translates roughly to “French-speaking/Francophone Month” in English. It was established to promote the French language and cultural diversity among Francophone communities globally. The celebration typically takes place in March each year and involves various events, including cultural festivals, language workshops, and educational activities, aimed at fostering dialogue and understanding among Francophone peoples. The idea behind Mois de la Francophonie is to highlight the importance of French as an international language and to celebrate the cultural richness it brings to societies around the world.

UBC Education Library is showcasing new French books in this month’s Collection Spotlight. From colorful children’s stories to gripping novels to non-fiction, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
