Greetings from a very chilly Dublin..

Hope someone can help! I am wondering - where is the best place to reach French speakers - we are looking for Canadian French speakers to go to Africa for Concern (an NGO based in Dublin). Is it La Presse or Le Devoir that I shoudl be advertising in? And what website?

Northern France, where the combination of Roman and Germanic traditions replaced the ancient Greco-Roman culture and civilization in the western part of Europe, was the core around which the Western world was formed. French was the language which for centuries was used by educated people all over Europe, gradually replacing Latin in international communications. As a result thousands of French words were absorbed into European languages, both in the western and eastern part of the continent. For the growth of the Western culture, the French linguistic inheritance is perhaps as important as that of ancient Greek and Latin.
