Why learning French should be on your to-do list

By Sponsored content 17 September 2019

As the leaves start changing colours and the cool wind brings in a pleasant (albeit damp) relief from summer, the arrival of autumn is just around the corner. This particular time of the year is not just the ideal season to go hiking or engage in outdoor activities, it also signals the start of a brand-new school term, which means it’s definitely the right time to feel motivated to learn a new language. Autumn gets us in a romantic mood, so why not start things off with a French language class?

Did you know that French is now the fifth most spoken language around the world and the second most spoken language in Europe? Getting the hang of this versatile language will surely get you involved in conversations around the world, no matter where you are. Whether you engage with French-speaking professionals on a daily basis or want to enrichen your social circle, adding one more language to your linguistic arsenal would always do more good than harm. Led by qualified, child-friendly, and native French teachers, Alliance Française has a whole range of diverse and exciting French classes lined up. All students are welcome to rediscover the pleasure of learning, no matter their age and level of French!
