Overview

Knowing a second language increases one's employability in a global environment. French is a good choice, being one of the few truly international languages, and is useful in travel, culture, trade, science and sport on several continents.

French culture is influential and its history fascinating. Studying French will offer students insight into the Francophone world, which unites diverse cultural, linguistic, socio-political and religious groups: from Canada and the Caribbean, to our neighbours New Caledonia and Tahiti, as well as many French-spreaking nations in Africa.
