How you approach learning French depends on your objectives. Some language learners are just beginning their journey by picking up common words and phrases and trying to replicate the infamous French accent. Other language learners may be coming back to French after some exposure to the language in the academic world. Whatever your goals are in learning French, you should carefully consider a language learning program built with you in mind.
Why is French an important language to learn?
Have you dreamed of viewing Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower, seeing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, or shopping at some of the infamous stores on Champs Élysées? How about exploring Montreal, Quebec, or Vancouver in Canada? While you can do all these things speaking any language, your experiences will be much better if you have learned how to speak French. More than two hundred and twenty million people speak French, and you will hear it spoken fluently on all five continents. Therefore, you have a chance of trying to communicate with a person in French, whether you are home, traveling, or conversing with someone for work. One of the best ways to learn about the cultures and traditions of the locals in France and Canada is to learn the language and speak it well enough to carry on conversations. Once you have learned how to converse in French, you will easily grasp other languages like Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and Romanian, because they are all very similar. This knowledge will make you more desirable, especially when it comes to a career because not many people will take the time to learn new languages.
