    Neither of these sounds happily English to me, I'm afraid. I'm not sure why, but think it's to do with the way you have split are from described. It's hard to know what else you might say without knowing the context, or why you want the passive voice. Is everything in your list French? – Margana Jun 17 '15 at 19:44

That depends on your intention.

There are French history, traditions, culture and famous people described.

e.g. written as There are descriptions of French history, traditions, culture and famous people.

This states French

  • history
  • traditions
  • culture
  • famous people

are described.

You may also take the French solely for French history, some traditions etc.


There are French history described traditions, culture and famous people.

e.g. written as There are traditions, culture and famous people described by French history.

This one states there is a description by French history of the other list items.
