Despite DSK's sordid affaire, there is a renewed interest in learning French. After all, French is a very important language. After English and German, French is the most used language of the world.
French is a Romance language spoken mainly in France but also in several other countries in Europe, Africa, all across the Caribbean region, and many parts of Canada. It descends from Latin, which it replaced in international communications from the 17th century until World War II, when English took over this role.
Today, French is spoken by 90 million people as their first language and is an official language in 29 countries. It is the third most spoken language in the European Union (EU), following English and German.
French is also an official language of all United Nations agencies and a large number of international organisations.
Why Do You Have To Learn French?
French plays an important role in diplomacy, journalism, law and education.
It is the international language of cuisine, fashion, theatre, visual arts, architecture and dance.
It is the third most commonly used language on the Internet.
Learning French can help you to learn other languages too, especially other Latin languages (Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, and Haitian Creole).
French is the language of Love! So here we go again. DSK possesses one of the most beautiful languages. He did not want to use it to meet his needs. Despite his actions, French will remain the language of love!
