Franco-nerd is a term used in minority francophone communities, found in Canadian cities like Winnipeg (St. Boniface), Manitoba, or in other provinces besides Québec.

A franco-nerd is like that annoying classmate that appears in every single high school yearbook picture because he or she joined absolutely all of the clubs and committees. A franco-nerd will probably do that, but even more, in their french community. Franco-nerds are usually young students.

If you're a franco-nerd you had french as your first language, went to a french elementary school and high school (not immersion). You ares especially franco-nerdy if you're also going to a french University.

A franco-nerd will be extremely involved in the french community, doing a lot of volunteer work, participate in french theatre, improv, and other french community activities from the second they were old enough to do it. A real franco-nerd will still be doing it in University.

They will speak french better than everyone else..
A franco-nerd will fight to keep french alive in the community and not let it die out.
Franco-nerds are extremely cliquey with each other.

A francophone that is not a franco-nerd will always have their francophone friends, because they're a minority, but they are not as involved in the french community and they live more with the majority, who are mostly anglophones. Some francophones might even speak ''franglais'' or ''frenglish''.
