Abstract. A sample of mental maps of the world drawn by first-year geography students of eight Francophone countries reflects their variations in geography education. In several countries the geography students are unable to place 30 countries on their Sketch maps ofthe world! The Francophone nations are not seen as the most important, for several large and wellknown countries appear more frequently than most Francophone countries on the sketch maps ofthe world from France and other Francophone countries of Europe, Africa and North America.
