La Francophonie celebrated in Seychelles

Seychelles joined the French-speaking world this week in celebrating “La Francophonie Seychelles.” This annual celebration brings out the historical past of the islands, once part of France after they were discovered and settled. “La Francophonie Seychelles” is today as much the celebration of the French language and that these tropical mid-ocean islands are part of the countries that form part of the French-speaking block called “La Francophonie,” as it reminds everyone that Seychelles were once part of France.
