Too bad if your French is not modern enough, or at a high level of understanding (myself, just two years of high school studies, over fifty years ago). Good for the target audience: French school users, with old school equipment.

"6 langues (Français, Anglais, Espagnol, Italien, Portugais, Allemand) prises en charge complètement dans les distributions" http://emmabuntus.sourceforge.net/

but the forum for the distro is in FRENCH-ONLY.
http://emmabuntus.sourceforge.net/forum/

It is an educational version of an OLD Xubuntu. Many (French) school user applications, not in Xubuntu. Modern, updated drivers are missing. Compared to XUBUNTU: https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=compare-packages&firstlist=emmabuntus&secondlist=xubuntu&firstversions=0&secondversions=0&showall=yes#allpackages
