Why learn French in France?

Why learn French in France?

“In the 30 years I’ve been doing this job, I’ve always sought to understand the reasons why foreign teens and adults want to learn to speak French. I believe that every language offers a unique perspective on the world and whilst English has long since gained global dominance, it seems to me that the benefit of learning French lies simply in the need not to conform to the single world view of the dominant language.“

By Alexandre Garcia,
Head of teaching at the Centre International d’Antibes since 1990
