Why learn French?
French is spoken by over 200 million people in over 40 countries, such as Canada, France, Switzerland, Belgium and Morocco, to name a few.
Business & Careers
Knowing French in Canada will give you a competitive edge in many careers, for which bilingualism is either preferred or required: diplomatic aides, flight attendants, foreign correspondents, guides in museums and art galleries, radio broadcasters, translators, customs officers and many others.
Studying French will also enhance one's knowledge and understanding of English - over 50,000 words in English have been adopted from French. Learning French will augment your vocabulary in both languages and give a unique understanding of speaking patterns and grammatical structures.
Studies consistently show that apart from all the obvious benefits of learning French listed above, students who know any second language on average perform better in school and later in life than their monolingual counterparts. Speaking a different language develops the frontal lobe of the brain and keeps one's mind sharp.
