Le Jour de la Francophonie!


Welcome to the Park School Francophone Trivia Page!

The purpose of this page is to raise awareness of the diverse traditions, people, and places where French is spoken in the world and to celebrate Le Jour de la Francophonie on March 20, 2015.

This week, check back EACH DAY for two trivia questions about Francophone Culture. If you can answer the questions, submit your responses in the form below (name, email, and answers only). (We will provide some helpful links if you need any hints.)

Bonne chance! (Good luck!)
