French

Sacre Coeur basilica, Paris

 

French is the official language in 29 countries and is spoken by some 274 million people, of which 76 million are native speakers. The number of French speakers is expected to grow sharply, with population growth in Africa. French is a Romance language (derived from Latin) and shares its origins with Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. It has a long history as an international language of literature and scientific standards, and is a primary or second language of many international organisations including the UN, the EU, NATO and the WTO. Proficiency in French is essential for anyone considering a career in any international organisation. In 2011, French was ranked the third most useful language for business, after English and Mandarin. Speaking French will give you access to business opportunities in countries in Europe, Africa and North America.
