Why learn French?

French is one of the most popular languages to study in the world. There are as many reasons for learning French as there are students and adults learning French at any one of the many French language schools in France.

For some, learning French is for pleasure. They learn French for the pleasure of living in France while they study the language. Oftentimes, they intend to spend more time in France in the future and know that speaking the language will come in handy, in addition to enabling them to experience France in a deeper, more sophisticated, and more pleasant manner.

Others, such as US students (and students from all over the world) choose France as their study abroad destination. Whether they spend one semester in France or an academic year in France, learning French is nearly always an important subject in their studies, if not the principal subject of their studies.

The French language is the gateway to a greater understanding of French art history, architecture, history, and culture. The greater ones ability in French, the easier it is to read primary source material and any other French material related to ones academic studies or interests.

Being able to effectively speak French also opens the way to pursue undergraduate or graduate studies in France at any one of France's famous universities. The ability to speak French, coupled with the experience of living abroad in France, becoming accustomed to a foreign culture, and enabling oneself to function in France as a foreign culture enables one to better understand all foreign cultures to a greater degree. Collectively, the experience of learning French as a foreign language and living in France enhances ones ability to function effectively in an increasingly global world—an attractive quality to future employers.

What place might French have in your life? Whether for personal or professional reasons, remember that France's rich culture and natural beauty make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and that the French economy is one of the largest in the world, making the ability to speak French a definite plus for anyone.
