Why learning French is a good idea?

Granted, mastering French is a real challenge. Nevertheless, it is probably one of the best decisions you can make for a variety of reasons.

Is French an easy language to learn? 🙋🏻‍♂️

It is difficult to answer "yes" or "no" to this question, because everything depends on the situation!

As a general rule, Spaniards or Italians find it easier to learn French. This is due in part to the similarities between French and languages of Latin origin.

One only has to look at or listen to Italian or Spanish to see the many similarities in vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. For example, regular verbs are similar and often share the same roots, which makes learning French easier.

For English speakers, however, it's a different story 😅

French can be a little more difficult because of significant differences in pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. English speakers often have difficulty pronouncing certain French words because certain sounds do not exist in their language. French grammar can also be a challenge for them.

But rest assured, even if you are an English speaker, don't worry. French is an affordable language and with perseverance, diligence (and a few French classes), you will find that the challenge is surmountable!

You will join a community of over 300 million people 🥳

Yes, 300 million people in over 50 countries around the world speak French! We can mention for example France, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Haiti, Africa and many other countries.

In addition, French is an official language of many international organizations such as the UN, UNESCO, NATO, the International Red Cross and the International Court of Justice.

As you can see, learning French can open doors to professional and educational opportunities around the world.

France, a popular destination As you probably know, France is a popular tourist destination for travelers from around the world. In 2019, nearly 90 million foreign tourists visited France (source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

Learning French can make your stay in France even more enjoyable, as you will be able to interact with French people and have a less stressful experience.

Learning French is good for your head!

Whether it is French or another language, it is scientifically proven that learning a foreign language has many health benefits.

Research has also shown that learning a new language may delay the onset of dementia and Alzheimer's disease, as it stimulates the brain and improves neural connectivity.

Learning a new language can be a great way to reduce stress and anxietyThis can help you focus on a relaxing and stimulating activity.
