2. Marketability

As the world’s fifth biggest economy and third-ranking destination for foreign investment, France is a key economic partner. Therefore, speaking french places you in an advantageous position in the job market! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Language of the arts and culture 

French words permeate through the worlds of cooking, fashion, theatre, the visual arts, dance and architecture. People speaking other languages will often find themselves using words borrowed from French. A french lesson is the beginning of a rich cultural journey.

5.  International relations 

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. Proficiency in French is essential for anyone considering a career in any international organisation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Gateway to other languages

Knowledge of french provides a good foundation for learning other languages, particularly the romance ones (Spanish, Italian, etc.) and even English since nearly 30 percent of its vocabulary is of French origin.
