La France… et La Francophonie - le français

La France et La Francophonie France and the French-speaking world Unit 1 Franais 1A Why are we doing this? I can begin to make comparisons and contrasts between French culture and my own. Devoir-cloche (bellwork): Question Essentielle: Le

franais, est-il parl exclusivement en France? Sinon, o est-ce quon le parle dans le monde? (Is French only spoken in France? If not, where else in the world do they speak it?) First thing you have to know about France is. La motto franaise: Libert, Egalit, et Fraternit The French motto: Liberty (or Freedom), Equality, and

Brotherhood Et la prochaine? (And the next thing?) Lhymne nationale: La Marseillaise (the French National Anthem) Compose le 25 avril 1792 par Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle (Composed on April 25, 1792 by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle)

Adopte par la Rpublique Franaise en 1795 en tant que lhymne nationale (Adopted by the French Republic in 1795 as the French National Anthem) (Received its name from the volunteer fighters from Marseille in the French Revolution who sang the song in the streets as they arrived in Paris*) Et voici La Marseillaise In this recording*, the singers perform four

verses of La Marseillaise in the following order: 1st, 7th,3rd, and 6th. *La Marseillaise performed by Jacques Gautier et al. from the album La Rvolution Franaise: Chants du Patrimoine La Marseillaise Allons enfants de la Patrie Le jour de gloire est arriv ! Contre nous de la tyrannie, L'tendard sanglant est lev. (bis) Entendez-vous dans les campagnes Mugir ces froces soldats? Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras. gorger vos fils, vos compagnes!

Aux armes, citoyens! Formez vos bataillons! Marchons, marchons! Qu'un sang impur Abreuve nos sillons! Arise children of the fatherland The day of glory has arrived! Against us tyranny's Bloody standard is raised (repeat) Do you hear in the countryside Roaring these ferocious soldiers? They are coming into our midst To cut the throats of our sons and our

companions! (husbands, wives) To arms citizens! Form your battalions! Lets march, lets march! May an impure blood Soak our furrows!* *Translation taken from the following two websites and improvised by author: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Marseillaise http://www.marseillaise.org/english/english.html La Fte Nationale - Jour de la Bastille

On July 14th, 1789, a group of around 600 Parisian citizens stormed the Bastille prison, which was a symbol of royal tyranny La Fte de la Fdration (known as Bastille Day in English) is Frances national independence day commemorating the overthrow of the French Monarchy during the French Revolution kicked off by the storming of the Bastille on July 14th.

Storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 http://www.titeparisienne.com/article-sur-les-traces -de-la-forteresse-108154341.html 14 juillet - Bastille Day in France Le gouvernement franais

Frances governmental structure is classified as a unitary semi-presidential republic; meaning a state whose three organs of state are governed constitutionally as one single unit, with one constitutionally created legislature in which a prime minister and a president are both active participants in the day-to-day administration of the state that is not led by a hereditary monarch. France has a constitution and is governed by an elected president and prime minister who exercise their powers over the Assemble Nationale or the French Parliament and Le Snat or the Senate. The presidential elections for France occur once every five years, though it was formerly set up as a seven-year term. Presidents can serve multiple terms, either back-to-back or

non-consecutively. Le Prsident de la Rpublique Franois Hollande N: 12 aot 1954 lu Prsident de la Rpublique le 6 mai 2012 Install en office le 15 mai
