Why learn French?

15 June 2019

To travel, live or study in Belgium, France, Canada or one of the 26 other countries for which it is the official language.

To work at the United Nations, in the European Institutions, the International Olympic Committee or the International Committee of the Red Cross.

To better understand the etymology of the English language.

To watch François Truffaut's films or read Victor Hugo's Les Misérables in the text.

These are good reasons to learn a language that, by 2050, will be spoken by 750 million people around the world.
