Le français et l'anglais langues étrangères au Liban : analyse de leurs statuts actuels

Abstract : This study analyses changes which have been produced during the last twenty years, concerning the situation of the two principal foreign languages, french and english in Lebanon. First, I present the social context, the history of these two languages, which explain demographic and religions composition of the population, the economic context, scholar situation and historical events, which contributed in rooting the two languages in the country. Second, demographic, institutional and psychosocial status analysis of english language demonstrates the sensible progress of this language since the beginning of the civil war (1975). Finaly, juridical, demographic, institutional and psychosocial status study of french language shows that it still the first foreign language in Lebanon. Consequently, it seems that this country is on the way towards a trilingual situation arab-french-english in state of bilingual arabe-french which had been characterizing it until the beginning of the war.
