Thinking you’d like to learn to speak French? You’re in the right place and in good company, no matter how young or old you are – or you feel.

Demand to learn to speak French amongst students of all ages continues to rise for a variety of very good reasons.

Here’s just four of them – 

1)     Leading Global Language – French is spoken by more than 300 million across the globe, including on home turf in France itself. In fact, according to the Ministére De L’Europe Et Des Affaires Étrangères – “French is the second most widely learned foreign language after English, and the fifth most widely spoken language in the world.” When you learn to speak French, you’re equipping yourself for a chinwag with the world.

2)     Improved Job Prospects – Speaking a language that’s so widely used across the globe turbo charges your job search when you’re in the market for employment.

3)     Culture & Romance – From De Sade to Sartre and Cocteau to Camus, French culture has been celebrated down the centuries. Choosing to learn to speak French means you’ll become more proficient at reading French, too, and understanding French cinema and theatre.

4)     Travel – France isn’t the only destination that might prompt you to learn to speak French before setting off on your holis. French is an official language in 29 countries, including Canada, and many African and European countries.
