Air Date:
Heard On University Of The Air

Words like cuisine, rendezvous, buffet, and chauffeur fill our English language, so we may be speaking more French than we know. Why are the French known for being snobbish about their language? How different is French in France from French in Quebec, Senegal, and other parts of the Francophone world? Why is “thinking in French” worthwhile? Continuing Studies Professor Sage Goellner celebrates the linguistic and cultural richness of French.
