Les avantages de la méconnaissance de la francophonie: le cas de la Suède
The article focuses on a country where the majority of the population can speak several foreign languages. French language is, with Spanish and German, the third language taught at school. If French language has lost its influence since the end of the eighties, the Francophonie as the group of French-speaking countries is not well-known. It is therefore possible to initiate a new cultural promotion. Some Francophone studies departments could emerge if cross-disciplines perspectives are dealt with. The article proposes different strategies to reach this objective: on the one hand, French-speaking diplomas can be encouraged to reinforce the student mobility and the professional mobility towards French-speaking countries and on the other hand we can strengthen the cooperation between French-speaking cultural institutions and the departments of French Language in Sweden. Several events such as the Francophonie competition and the Språkolympiaden can support the general promotion of French Language. The earlier we work with the different pupils interested in French at school, the easier it will be to help them to continue with French at the University. From this point of view, the departments of French Language which are part of Romance and Languages departments could evolve. In other words, the author points out that it is better to enhance new cultural contents (Literature, civilization….) than to restrict the fields to pure linguistic ones.
