Why Learn




French is the native language of 200 million people on five continents and the second language of millions more. More than 50 percent of English words are derived from French, making it easy to pick up the vocabulary. And most agree that French – the language of love, reason, literature and diplomacy – one of the most beautiful languages in the world.

  • C’est facile!

    French is a fairly easy language to learn for native English speakers. More than 50 percent of current English vocabulary is derived from French.

  • Love & reason

    French is a beautiful, rich, melodious language, often called the language of love. French is also an analytical language that structures thought and develops critical thinking.

  • World Language

    There are more than 200 million French speakers on the five continents. French is the second most widely learned foreign language after English.

  • Travel

    France is the world’s number one tourist destination, attracting 70 million visitors a year. French also comes in handy when traveling to Africa, Switzerland, Belgium, Monaco, Canada, the Seychelles and other places.

  • Culture

Demystifying the French: A Panel Discussion
Demystifying the French: A Panel Discussion

Saturday, August 28, 2021
10:00am PST
Federation of Alliances Françaises USA
In English
We’ve all encountered clichés about the French. We may have heard that the French can be rude and arrogant, and even perhaps that the French may secretly harbor a dislike for Americans. My goodness – ma foi – could these clichés have some truth in them? Or could there, perhaps, be some kind of culturally based misunderstanding going on? Our panel of experts will share their insights, perspectives, and experiences, gathered over the course of many years of living, traveling, and/or working in France. Free for all Alliance Française members.
