Why Learn

 

French?




 

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

  • French is the language of cooking, fashion, theatre, the visual arts, dance and architecture.
