Official status in France
According to the French Constitution, French has been an official language since 1992 (although previous legal texts have already made this language official since 1539, such as the Ville-Cottret decree). In France, it is mandated to use French in official government publications, public education except in isolated cases (although these tendencies are often ignored) and in government contracts. Advertisements are supposed to give translations of foreign words.

French in Switzerland
French is one of the four official languages of Switzerland (along with German, Italian and Romance) and is also spoken in the western part of Switzerland called Romandie, of which Geneva is the largest city. The linguistic division in Switzerland does not coincide with the political division and some cantons have a bilingual status, such as cities such as Biel/Bienne or cantons such as Valais-Friborg-Bern. French is the mother tongue of around 20% of the Swiss population and is also spoken by 50.4% of the population.
For the most part, “Swiss” French is comparable to the standard language spoken in France, but it is often used with minor differences, such as those seen in numerals following 69 and minor differences in other lexical items.
