French Language

Francophone countries in Africa

Have you noticed how French is being used more and more in South Africa ? Not only is it the language of half the African continent, but trade with the french-speaking African countries is constantly developing. As our international links increase, so the need for French speaking people in various fields (commerce, medicine, engineering, education, tourism, etc) will increase...

Why is it time to learn French?

It will greatly increase your employability in the global market. It could also open the doors to various wonderful pleasures: cooking, music, cinema, art...
While any language is useful for some jobs or for some regions, French is the only foreign language that can be useful throughout the world as well as on the African continent and in Europe. French as a foreign language is the second most frequently taught language in the world after English. French is the only language other than English spoken on five continents.
