Video / Veliaj delivers a speech in French for the first time! The President of the Assembly of the Francophonie comments
Erion Veliaj has entered politics with English, let's say, but over the years in the Municipality he has introduced himself to other foreign languages. Italian or even French lately. Where for the first time he decided to give a speech in French during the meeting in Tirana the deputies of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Francophonie.
The mayor himself said with humorous notes that on that occasion he passed the first test of his speech in English: “On this occasion I passed my first test of a speech in French. "So you can count me among the young Francophones."
As the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Francophonie, Jean-Charles Luperto said: “As I was informed earlier, you have been practicing French for a year and today your practice turned out great! I speak Albanian much worse. "Thank you for welcoming us to your beautiful city."
Even earlier, Veliaj had indicated in interviews that he was studying the French language.
In Albania, after English, Italian, French are the preferred languages. Greek too, but this has come more because of immigration.
