Here's a list of Countries
that speak the French
language. There are over 50 of them in the World.
Note that French may not be the official language of these countries. For example, in Italy only a region speaks it according to AU's Italy writeup (Valle d'Aosta region).*
It's nice to know one may communicate with such a great amount of people.

*stewacide says re French Speaking Countries: New Hampshire is also very French (and I beleive the percentage of people who actually speak French is much higher than in Louisiana)
stewacide says re French Speaking Countries: according to http://www.state.nh.us/nhculture/english .html they're seeking some sort of status in La Francophonie
