This article proposes a framework by which "la Francophonie" can be presented to students within the context of the business French class. The goal may not be to pursue an in-depth analysis of each and every country and region, but rather to provide a variety of approaches according to which these political entities may be compared, not only to each other, but to the rest of the world. By adopting a comparative perspective on the French-speaking world, the instructor will avoid the dilemma of having to choose on which states/regions to focus, and the pitfalls of teaching a subject matter that may not be within the instructor’s realm of expertise.
