Why learn french- what are the benefits

WHY LEARN FRENCH- what are the benefits.
Well, French is a widely spoken language, spoken by over 130 million people around the world, in places like Belgium, Swiitzerland and much of Northern Africa, its the second most widely used language after english.
Learning French will increase your job prospects. In the USA there are over 600 French subsidiaries including many major companies.
You will be able to converse with more people and make more friends and of course impress people and have a better understanding of them ,their country and culture.
Learning a new language also develops your critical and creative thinking skills.
Forty to fifty percent of the english vocabulary comes from French so learning French will also give you a better understanding of your own language. When learning a new language you have to think about verbs,adjectives, tenses and more, so it does help you to understand your own language.
Learning a new language is good for the brain. Its been demonstrated that you can halt the age-related decline in mental function by learning a new language.and it can help prevent dementia.Most people also see a general improvement in memory. More can be found on this at
Also its fun and you can meet new people if you attend a class, or if you don`t have alot of time you can learn at home or on the go. This is just some of the benefits but I`m sure there`s lots more.
