Why should you learn French

Did you know that French is the official language in 29 countries across 5 different continents? Other than France, you can also find a lot of French native speakers in Canada, Belgium, Switzerland and many countries in Africa. Having some knowledge of the French language can give you a huge boost in your career progression and broaden your job oppotunities. French isn't the easiest language to learn for a native English speaker, especially when it comes to pronunciation. However, it shares many similarity with the Spanish, Portuguese and Italian language, especially when it comes to grammar. So learning the French language can open up your world and help you succeed in learning other languages in the Romance language tree!

Remember that learning a language is a challenge and a long term goal. We’re here to help you reach that dream faster and easier. It doesn’t happen overnight, but once you know a language, you know it for life!
