A French fact


Quebec has a lot to celebrate. It is not well known that French did not become the homogenous language of France until the 20th century. Regional languages dominated in Brittany, Alsace, Corsica, Nice and much of the South of France. However from 1608, French was the language of the settlers of New France. In other words French was the language of what is now Quebec, before it was dominant in France.
