CITES was drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of IUCN (The World Conservation Union). The text of the Convention was finally agreed at a meeting of representatives of 80 countries in Washington, D.C., United States of America, on 3 March 1973, and on 1 July 1975 CITES entered in force. The original of the Convention was deposited with the Depositary Government in the English, French and Spanish languages, each version being equally authentic. The Convention is also available in Chinese and Russian.

Much of modern French slang comes from the influence of North African Arabic spoken in Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco. Some of this slang is even used among families and friends outside the big French cities, thanks to the spread of hip-hop culture.

Alternatively, there are many well-respected international schools in France, which are mostly concentrated in the large metropolitan centers. These schools either uphold the teaching language and curriculum of an expat's home country, of which British and American are the most common, or subscribe to the International Baccalaureate curriculum and teach in English.[4]

Expats moving to France will find themselves absorbed into a proud society that values respect and conservative behavior. From the language to the iconic architecture and decadent food, French culture is world-renowned and associated with elegance and sophistication. While many expats may be well-acquainted with aspects of the French way of life, there are many nuances that can make navigating French etiquette confusing for new arrivals.

French is the official language of France. Although expats may encounter those who can speak English in tourist areas, such as in Paris, those relocating to the more rural areas are likely to need to learn French if wanting to fully integrate into society. Attempting to at least learn a few key phrases will go a long way to earning the respect of the locals.

The French have turned pastry making into an art form and boulangeries and patisseries can be found on just about every street corner, and expats may enjoy sampling the decadent sweet treats and local breads that these establishments are famous for. Fresh food markets are also prevalent in towns and cities and offer a wonderful alternative for those looking to sample the local produce.

Expats are often drawn by attractive working conditions, which include a 35-hour work week, plenty of holiday time and early retirement. Nevertheless, finding a job in France can be difficult for foreigners, and most who manage to find one do so through intra-company transfers or opportunities within large multinational organizations. Learning French is vital if wanting to succeed in the French job market as knowledge of the language is a requirement for most positions.[8]

Getting to grips with French culture is vital if expats want to succeed in the business world. The French are very proud of their culture and language and making the effort to understand the subtle nuances of how one should behave in the corporate world is essential. Being able to speak French can often count in your favor, and can help build a successful business relationship with locals.

TOEFL, IELTS, the Duolingo English Test (DET), or the Cambridge English Exam are recommended for applicants whose primary language is not English or students who have not attended an English language school for the last three years.

The event was made possible by FHS world language and art departments along with French, German and Spanish honor societies, the Asian Culture Club and the Origami Club.The evening started with students visiting various foreign language booths and the booth for Flagship FIRST Robotics, which competes with other schools around the region and nation, and the refreshments table, which featured foods from various countries.It culminated with a program, emceed by Sophia Cook and Cathy Horwege, of raffle prizes and entertainment, which included Lucy Zhou and Ivy Zhang, who sang a Chinese song; a Ghainain drum solo by Wayne Bediako, father of student Selom Bediako; the Duhaime-Prince Igo Trombone Quartet, which included A.J. Duhaime, Alex Souther, Thinh Ho and Drew Tucker; Sumin Son and Yeon Cho singing a Korean song; Flagship Robotics members, Hayden Toon, Aaron Boehm and Pragya Nidhi demonstrating their robot; and Ivan and Niko Maldonado performing Spanish music.

The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, minister of Official Languages and minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, announced more than $4.7 million in funding to support French-language postsecondary education in British Columbia.

The funding at UVic will expand access to digital francophone collections that will be available to the university community through UVic Libraries. These collections will help UVic expand its research areas to include a greater diversity of French language content from around the world and increase global connections and engagement.
