WHYLEARN FRENCH
10 REASONS TO START
Liberté Égalité Fraternité
RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE
French is far from being the language of France only: more than 200 million
people speak French around the globe.
French is the main language or one of the main languages in more than 30
countries across the five continents.
It is also the second language in the world by the number of countries that have
adopted it as an official or administrative language.
France is the third most popular destination for studies. 2,78,000 international
students visited us last year. You could easily choose Paris to settle down: the
French capital has been named “best student city in the world” by QS, the education
company, in 2013. Or you could choose any other city as France has a widely spread
higher education network. According to your subject, you can select French- or
English-medium courses. But remember that knowing French will enable you to
manage your daily life, meet new people and create real opportunities.
WORLDWIDE
S T U D I E S
The Eiffel Tower stands just a few hours away from the Taj Mahal. 83 million
people visited France in 2013, making it the first tourist destination in the
world. They had a chance to try French food, wines, perfumes, fashion, cafés,
and the joie de vivre...
India is a big country and French companies are among the biggest
investors in India. The brands “Renault”, “Danone”, “L'Oréal” or
“Michelin” may sound familiar. This is not surprising as there are 350
French companies in India. They are regularly looking for employees
who can communicate in French. If you have the world in sight, French
will also benefit you as India is more and more present in Africa where
French is largely spoken.
Careers in hotel management, tourism and aviation also favor candidates
with knowledge of French language. Wherever you might go, opting for
French is a good option: knowing French is always a noticeable asset.
TOURISM
C A R E E R
Créer, c’est vivre deux fois.
– Albert Camus
“
The French heritage, its monuments, its countryside and art is widely
recognised. Are you fond of reading? France has won more Nobel prizes
for Literature than any country in the world. Knowing French means
getting to read writers from France but also from Africa, Caribbean,
Northern America and many other parts of the world. French literature
is extremely productive and multicultural. French is the second most
translated language in the world as far as books are concerned.
Do you like movies better? Then you could try French cinema. Today
France is the third biggest film market in the world just after India.
And you may even get a chance to go to the Cannes film festival,
the international rendez-vous for directors since 1946.
Finally, any lover of art and culture has good reasons to be
interested in French as it is one of the international languages
of theatre, visual arts, architecture, music, dance, gastronomy,
fashion and much more.
C U L T U R E
French is taught in every country around the world. France has the largest network
of cultural institutions. Planning to start learning French in India? You can rely on the
cultural network of France in the country.
NETWORK
The Institut français en Inde is the
cultural service of the Embassy of
France in India. It helps to promote
French relations abroad through
greater dialogue with foreign cultures.
Its missions include promoting
French language, training teachers of
French and supporting educational
institutions.
French is the first foreign language
in school in India and it is taught in
more and more schools every year.
Alliances françaises are cultural
centres linked to the French
government and aim at promoting
French language and culture around
the world. There are 13 such Alliances
françaises across India. They provide
French courses to students of all
levels and regularly organize cultural
events. So if you want to learn French
you can join a course easily!
French is one of the most used languages on the internet. French is also the third
language on the collaborative knowledge website Wikipedia.
TV5, France 24, Radio France Internationale, AFP... French medias cover all major
topics in the world and give you a new way of looking at the world.
S C I E N C E
M E D I A
France happens to be one of the major contributors to science with 13 Nobel prizes
for physics, 13 for medicine, 8 for chemistry and 11 Fields medals in mathematics.
France was also ranked third in the world and first in Europe for the technological
innovation of its companies and research centres in 2013 according to the “Top 100
Global Innovators” ranking from Thomson Reuters.
French is one of the two official languages of the United Nations, the
UNESCO, the international Olympic Committee, the international Red
Cross, etc. Knowing French is essential for a career in an international
organization. Over one-third of the UN's members are part of
the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (International
Organisation of French-speaking countries). The OIF is composed of 77
states and governments and is active in international relations, Human
Rights, education, research, cooperation and sustainable development.
Learning French will help you learn other languages, especially
Romance languages such as Spanish, Italian, Portuguese or
Romanian. English speakers should also know that French has
provided more than 50% of the current English vocabulary.
