So, why should you learn French? For one thing, most menu items are either in Italian or French. If you speak the language, then you can confidently order ratatouille knowing full well that it doesn’t contain rats neither was it created by a genius rodent. Still not convinced? Here are a few more reasons to take up French.
It’s Spoken Everywhere
We already know that English is the most widely spoken language in the world but did you know that French is the second most widely learned foreign language after English? The language is spoken in nearly every continent and has more than 280 million speakers worldwide. This is because France operates the biggest international network of cultural institutes which offer French-language courses.
See the Sights
France is often regarded as the hotbed of culture and learning the language will allow you to learn more about French culture as well as its exceptional culinary, artistic, and historic heritage.
The demand for multi-lingual employees is continually rising and fluency of a widely spoken language gives you a leg-up from other candidates. French is also a corporate language in Europe and an official language in many international institutions, including the United Nations!
Study in France
Some of the world’s top-ranked schools are French universities and business schools. Speaking the language allows you to study at these institutions where you can immerse yourself not just in academics but in a whole different culture as well.
Nothing says dashing debonair better than flirting in French. Traditionally known as the language of love, everything always seems more romantic when it’s in French!
