Why learn French?


1.

A WINDOW TO THE WORLD

In today’s world, speaking one language is not enough. And with an estimated 750 million speakers by the year 2050, French is set to become the world’s most widely spoken language.


2.

A CAREER ASSET

Both a working and an official language of international institutions such as the UN and UNESCO, French is essential for anyone considering a career in international relations. It is also useful for careers in engineering, automotive industries, luxury goods or aeronautics.


3.

A TRAVELLER’S TOP CHOICE

The ability to speak even a little French makes it more enjoyable to visit Paris, the world’s top tourist destination. It is also handy when travelling off the beaten track to countries such as Morocco, Switzerland, Canada, Mauritius or New Caledonia!
