From doing some preliminary research on this topic, it appears that globalization is having and will continue to have a negative impact on the French language. The French overseas empire (outre mer) has shrunk and French is being replaced in formerly French-speaking countries by native languages, English, and others. Also, countries joining the European Union and those countries that are already members of the European Union cite English as being a more useful language than French. This is because the influence of the United States is greater world-wide than France. Sacre bleu! Even Quebec with its dual English/French language and heavily-influenced French culture has repeatedly voted down pulling away from the rest of Canada because of the economics of globalization.
