Why learn French?


1.

A WINDOW TO THE WORLD

In today’s world, speaking one language is not enough. 220 million people speak French around the world! French is an official language in 29 countries and it is also the only language, alongside English, that is taught in every country in the world.


2.

an official canadian language

French is one of Canada's two official languages and French communities can be found in every province. 21% of Canadians have French as their mother tongue. In Calgary, close to 7% of the population can speak both official languages. 


3.

A career asset

 Language skills are often required for government positions, especially in federal departments. Studies have shown that Canadians fluent in both official languages have better opportunities than unilingual job candidates.


4.

A traveller’s top choice

French is the only language that is spoken on all 5 continents! The ability to speak even a little French makes it more enjoyable to visit Québec or France, the world’s top tourist destination.


5.

A cultural journey

Enter the worlds of cinema, gastronomy, literature, fashion and science! Discover the works of great French writers, poets, actors and singers. Learn French and embark on an unforgettable journey into the arts and culture of France, Québec and other Francophone parts of the world!


6.

A way to meet new friends

Wit over 1,000 students every year at Alliance Française Calgary, you will meet new like-minded people who love cultural experiences and learning new things. A great way to expand your circle of friends! 


7.

French is fun & familiar

Approximately 50 percent of English vocabulary is derived from French. It's not quite as simple as just learning the other 50 percent, but it is a good start! French is an easy language to learn and our teachers will help you learn in a fun and efficient way! 


8.

Train your brain

Learning a second language stimulates the brain! A 2014 study found that reading, verbal fluency, and intelligence were improved in people who learned a second language, even if they took up the language later in life.
