It's that time of the year for French speakers in Thailand. The "Francophonie Festival" is back at Alliance Francaise Bangkok on Feb 8. Organised by the French Embassy, the annual one-day event aims to celebrate the French language and the rich diversity of Francophone cultures. The festival is expected to draw more than 4,000 visitors from across the country. Sport-related activities and competitions, including pe{aac}tanque, fencing and mini golf, will run from 8am to 6pm. The kite competition will bring novelty to the festival, rewarding the most evocative illustration. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will man a booth at the event. It will also host a round-table discussion on March 20 about the importance of the French language in Thailand, which has been an observatory member of the International Organisation of La Francophonie since 2008. There is no admission fee. Alliance Francaise Bangkok is located on Witthayu Road. Visit or call 02-670-4230 and 02-627-2100.
