    French is the only language besides English spoken on all five continents, and by 2050 it is predicted to overtake English as the most widely spoken language in the world. Many companies, both locally and internationally, value employees who can converse in French, so having a working understanding of the language can boost your career opportunities. If you are a lover of literature or art, learning French will help you expand your artistic horizons, with a wealth of works waiting to be discovered.
