Why learn French?

French is the only language besides English spoken on all five continents, and by 2050 it is projected 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, and so having a working understanding of the language can boost your career opportunities. If you are a lover of literature or art, then learning French will help you expand your artistic horizons, with a wealth of works waiting to be discovered. French is also an incredibly handy language to have while traveling in Europe. You will gain a deeper understanding of the culture, history, and heartbeat of each city by understanding the language. You will also make friends with the locals, and find out about eateries and points of interest outside the usual tourist paths.
