In France a battle to save a dying language is being carried out. Breton is spoken by about 200,000 people in France. 80-years-ago, it was more than a million. It is spoken in Britanny, northwest France and campaigners believe Breton will make a comeback!

The Aye Can website aims to help people decide if they can understand Scots — the collective name for Scottish dialects such as Glaswegian, Doric, Buchan, Dundonian, or Shetland. Visitors to the site, developed by the Scots Language Centre, can listen to recordings of people around the country speaking their local dialect. http://www.ayecan.com/

    I went to Flickr to get more info re this striking photo and this is what the photographer, Eric Lafforgue, had written:
    She's called Kim i Sim.
    Miss Kim I Sim lives in Pyongyang ??. She is dressed in uniform but she is not a soldier. She is the french speaking guide the “Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum”. It is a huge war museum. The museum is dedicated to the DPRK’s struggle against the Japanese and the Americans. It has over 80 halls exhibitions. It is not heated up because they have energetical problems. It is very cold in winter. All the lights are off to save energy. The rooms are lighted one after another once the visit is over.
    In the museum, you find a lot of weapons. You can see military equipment. During the visit, someone will explain to you the North Korean War. It is not the same explanation as the american’s one. North Korean who meet the rare tourists are severly controlled.
    The museum is visited all day long by kids and soldiers. It is propaganda. Like every official site, the museum is visited by the people several times in their life.
    Miss Kim has met only 25 tourists in 2009.
    Pyongyang, North Korea DPRK

Dialects Endangered by Modernization: Despite government efforts to protect minority languages, they are still faced with the danger of disappearing due to modernization, top advisers have warned. There are 56 officially recognized ethnic groups in China and more than 100 of the country’s dialect languages are in danger of dying out, according to the United Nations.
