About

Did you know that French language is the second most studied language and the fifth most spoken language in the world?

The number of French-speakers is expected to triple in the next 30 years, mostly due to the African population growth. 15 countries have French as one of their official languages and 84 countries are members of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF).

French is both a working language and an official language of the United Nations, the European Union, UNESCO, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross and international courts.

Proficiency in French is essential for anyone considering a career in any international organisation. The ability to speak both French and English is an advantage for finding a job with the many multinational companies using French as their working language, in a wide range of sectors.

Speaking French opens new study opportunities at renowned French universities and business schools. Students with a good level of French are eligible for French government grants to enrol in postgraduate courses in France.

What our French students say:

  • “The teacher really makes the class; he is clearly very experienced and makes everyone in the class feel comfortable.”
