Why learning French is important for me?

Today, French is the first or second spoken language in more than 52 countries and is spoken by about 150 Million people worldwide. Because French is the language of choice to learn as a second language for many people everywhere, French can help you tremendously, whenever you travel around in one of the countless countries, in which English is not spoken primarily.

Canada, officially bilingual, is the most important trading partner for the United States and requires labeling in English and French on all imported products. Hundreds of French companies have subsidiaries in the US and France is the largest recipient of US foreign investment. Many companies, such as airlines, import-export corporations and other companies in the industrial sector, offer jobs for people with a basic or more advanced knowledge of the French language. Certainly also because of this, in many states of the US, French is taught in school as first or second foreign language.
