Why learn French?

Reasons for learning French
  • Communicate in a French-speaking country
  • Develop your professional skills
  • Get a deeper understanding of French art & culture
  • French spoken in France and Canada

If you are going to take a vacation, work or study in a French-speaking country, being able to communicate in the same language does come quite in handy.

French is spoken in France, a large part of Canada and in parts of Belgium and Switzerland, among many other places around the world. Actually, it is spoken as an official language in 33 countries around the world and is the only language other than English spoken on five continents.

It may also be just what you need to develop your career; you may even be working for a French company in your own country. It is important to point out that the French language has a prominent role in our globalized world: it is the official working language (together with other languages) of:

  • The United Nations
  • The International Monetary Fund
  • The International Olympic Committee
  • The European Union

Another good reason for learning French is getting in touch with a language with a long cultural tradition; learning French will allow you to step into the world of the likes of Jules Verne, Flaubert, Victor Hugo and Proust… and French film directors such as Godard, Truffaut and Resnais.
