What languages are spoken in France?
The only official language of France is French. This has been enforced in the Constitution (article 2). Other languages have been spoken on the French soil. Most of them, due to the language repression policy, are now seriously endangered. It just depends on regions some regions speak different languages but most regions speak French. Breton, Corsican, Occitan, Catalan, Basque, Alsatian, Flemish, are regional languages in France, but it isn't difficult to find locals who speak English, German, and other languages. Tourism and other commerce has fostered the use of other languages by natives for a long period. The schools do teach English classes and because of the influx of people from other parts of the world other languages can be heard, but French is the national language. The top three languages of France is 1.French 2.Basque and 3.Catalan We generally count 10 regional languages: alsatian-lorrain (upper German dialects), arpitan (or francoprovençal), basque, catalan, corsican, flemish (dutch dialect), ligurian (padanian dialect), occitan (or provençal or langue d oc), romani, and yiddish (native in Alsace). We should add the dialects of French generally grouped as "languages of oïl" (picard, walloon, gallo, poitevin-saintongeais, normand...) and the languages of overseas possessions. And finally we could add all the languages spoken by foreigners... Klingon, Urdu, and Esperanto Well, obviously French. But most Europeans speak about six languages each, normally including English, and their borders. In this case, Italian, Spanish, or German, maybe. Also maybe an Asian language, Portuguese, or maybe a Scandinavian language. They sort of have a choice, but most normally at least speak English. However, if you are going to France, you do not know any French and you are American, I would suggest learning these words in French, 'I'm sorry. I don't know French.' or something like that. You might be wondering, 'Why would I say that?' but it's... polite. Historically, Basque at the western end of the Pyrenees, Provençal in the South, Breton in Brittany. These are tiny-minority languages nowadays, with Basque the most genuinely living. There is also a Franco-German dialect in Alsace which is considerably different from French. French is the official language of France, spoken by about 85% of the population. Other major languages of French are English (34%), Spanish (13%), German (8%), and Italian (2%). 1. French 2. Swiss German 3. Italian (more than 90% of the population speaks French). 1) French. 2) Occitan: a language very similar to French, but not quite the same, spoken in the South. Also called Provençal (though technically speaking Provençal is a dialec of Occitan nowadays most people in France will use the term Provençal). 3) German: in Alsace, a province bordering with Germany, the speak mostly German. 4) Arabic: there are many immigrants from North-Africa, coming mainly from former French colonies such as Algeria and Marocco The top 1 language of France is French.

When was the Statue of Liberty built?
The Statue of Liberty was built in France 1882, was transported to America on October 28, 1886 and was then pronounced the Statue of Liberty. France and America both worked on the Statue of Liberty. France was building the actual statue and America was working on the foundation for the statue. Both had trouble financing their efforts so the statue was actually about 10 years late from the time the visionaries wanted to dedicate the statue. Anyhow, the statue was completed in July of 1884 in France but the foundation for her wasn't completed until 1886 in America. On October 28, 1886 the dedication of the statue took place after she had been transported from France to the US in crates and then reassembled.
