Why learn French?

French is, along with English, the only language spoken on all five continents.  French is also the second most widely taught language after English, and is taught on every continent. The OIF, an international organisation of French-speaking countries, is made up of 77 member States and governments.


French is an official language of the United Nations, the European Union, UNESCO, NATO, The International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross and international courts.

Students who speak several languages will increase their chances of finding a job, whether in their home country or abroad. Learning another language enriches the mind and opens up to new personal and professional horizons.

Speaking French opens up opportunities for higher education at some of France’s best-known universities or elite Grandes écoles (the Sorbonne, Pierre Marie Curie University, HEC, Polytechnique…). Students with a good level of French may be eligible to apply for a French government grant to enrol on a postgraduate course of their choice in France, leading to an internationally recognised postgraduate degree.

French is the language of the universal ideals advocated by the philosophers of the 18th century Enlightenment, who helped to spread the idea of human rights throughout the world.


French is a good grounding for learning other languages, especially Romance languages (Spanish, Italian, Portuguese …) and even English, since over half of modern-day English vocabulary is derived from French.
