Have you ever wanted to learn French? Dubbed the “language of love”, French is used by over 235 million speakers daily in over 54 countries. But why should you pick French out of all the languages you could be learning?
To start, France isn’t just one of the most beautiful countries in central Europe, but a global powerhouse with significant presence in the automobile, aircraft and chemical manufacturing, the electronic, machinery, metallurgy industries, as well as tourism. In fact, 35% of the global Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in France. Learning French will not only help you out as a tourist in France, the Caribbean or Africa, but also as a rising professional looking to expand or diversify your business in the global market. Not only that, but French, being a romance language, shares so many elements with the other languages in its family, such as Spanish and Italian, that learning French will help you understand those languages – and give you a significant boost if you wish to learn them, too. Finally, it’s well-proven that learning another language can lead to many new career opportunities, whether that’s becoming a more attractive candidate, or qualifying for a promotion at your current position.
