Why learn French?

Why learn French This colourful, informative flyer has been prepared for Victorian students in Australia but the content would be relevant in a number of places, French is one of the world languages and has significance because of that. If it is coupled with other language knowledge and capability then it serves the functions of increasing communication in a connected world. I actually have a class this year where we swap from French to English or German to help facilitate communication and understanding. It is the first time I have actually taught trilingually and is very funny and successful. The ones who know English and French are starting to pick up on German and the German speakers are increasing their English and French because we do use their language sometimes to clarify – or just have fun. The Consulat General à Houston also has a flyer which gives 10 really good reasons for learning French.
