French is spoken by over 300 million people worldwide.
On an individual level, studies tend to show that those who speak multiple languages develop a certain cognitive agility and forms of creativity that give them a real advantage. Furthermore, work has shown that companies that do not have sufficiently advanced multilingual skills among their workforces can lose out in economic terms. English is essential but is not enough.
The market should not, however, be the only prospect. Languages are centred around a series of values that enable us to act responsibly and in solidarity.
The Parlons français, c’est facile ! website offers a series of workshops and games to help you familiarise yourself with the French language.
