English Ascendancy

The Agence France Presse reports that even in proudly Francophone Lebanon, English is overtaking French as the lingua franca. This is a worldwide trend that I've seen in Rwanda and Morocco as well: the children of Francophones are learning English, too.

This weekend, I'll be in Montreal, to see if that holds in the snottiest Francophony of them all.
