Broaden your horizons

Study in French to add value to your studies and stand out in the job market!

  • French is the only language after English that is spoken on every continent. As an official language in 33 countries around the world, French is spoken by over 200 million people.
  • French plays a key role in many countries as the international language of administration, diplomacy, or business. That makes it an important asset for international jobs, research work, and careers at major global organizations such as the UN, UNESCO, NATO, and the OECD.
  • The French language boasts a rich cultural and scientific heritage. What is more, it is a key language in a number of fields, including social science, human science, and philosophy.
  • As one of Canada’s two official languages, French is the foundation of much of Canada’s history and culture. As the official language of Québec, it will give you insight on Québec culture and open the door for fruitful social interactions here.
  • Learning French helps you learn other languages, not only other Latin-based languages like Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian, but English as well, since over 50% of the words currently in use in English have French roots.

Whether your goal is to travel, work, or build your network of business contacts or friends around the world, knowing French can be a big advantage.
