Presque Partout

French was the lingua franca of the old world. Now it's not! Ha ha


Hey guess what! I'm designing a new game - this time, it's a filmmaking board game, with Itchy Feet-style art and humor, called Roll Camera! The Filmmaking Board Game. It's still early days but if you want to be the first to hear when it's ready, put your email in the box below!

  1. I often seen English natives speaker complaining about "the arrogant French who want the whole world to speak French", but I have never seen a French speaker wanting the whole world to speak French. Funny.

    1. Twice I've been out and about in non-French speaking countries and was approached by French people who asked me directions in French! Well in fairness, they were usually older couples. Young French people don't seem to feel this way.

    2. I just had my AP students write a paper on, "Should the French language protect itself from the English invasion?" This strip works so well with our sources, as language is power and identity. I am going to use it as my the cover for my guide on how to write a better paper. Thanks!

    3. Reminds me of that German song, "Ach Herr bitte gibt mir meine Sprache Züruck", Garrison. As the song goes on, more and more German words are replaced with their English translations (or a German word made of English morphemes).

  2. what about anglophones who just expect anyone to speak english in non-english countries?
