French is also the official language of Canada (Quebec), Haiti, Martinique, Guadalupe, French Guyana, and in some communities of Dominica. Creole French is used to a lesser extent in the Dominican Republic.
In certain Asian countries, French is spoken as well though by only a minority in countries like Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, India, Lebanon and Oceania. It is the official language along with English in the US state of Louisiana.
