Learning French gives you an opportunity to connect cultures all over the world. According to the French government, 220 million people speak French, across five continents. It’s an important language in business and diplomacy, as well as in art and literature.
Whatever your age, starting to learn French—or improving on your current standard—is well worth the time. Language learning is great for your mind, and French is one of the most useful (and many would argue, most beautiful and least difficult) languages you can take on.
