The French language is classified as a romance language. French is spoken by about 130 million people as a first language and by another 400 million as a second language, or acquired foreign language. The French language is spoken widely throughout the world due to the fact that following decolonisation, French and Belgian colonies retained French as their language of government, education and science. French is therefore spoken in 54 different countries; mainly in France, but also in Canada (Quebec), Belgium, Switzerland, Francophone Africa, Luxembourg, and Monaco. The French language is the official language of 29 countries and ranks as one of the top ten most commonly spoken languages in the World.
France is the number one tourist destination in the world due to its fine wine and cheeses, fashion houses, art museums, medieval cities, montane villages, and Mediterranean coastlines. Perhaps you have dreamt about gazing at the Eiffel Tower while crunching on a croissant at a cobblestoned street cafe, learning how to cook French cuisine, exploring the lovely Louvre, or even stomping grapes at an idyllic vineyard. If this is the case, then Conversation Piece’s French language lessons will be helpful. Allow our French Language trainers to help you to fulfil those dreams by teaching you the exquisite French language. Plus, you may be pleased to realize that France is an ideal travel location with its proximity to England. You may already be aware that some English words have French origins, such as rendezvous and deja-vu, but did you know that many other English words originate from French, including joy, panache, garage, penchant, dossier, bourgeoisie and promenade? Also entourage, entrepreneur, camaraderie, critique, espionage, genre, repertoire and sabotage? Yes, the lists of French-originating English words are long, due to the fact that over a third of English words have French roots. With French having such a deep connection to the English language, it’s a language that not only globe-trotters, but any English speaker should be eager to pick up.
