French as a foreign language

The French Language

French_Speaking_Countries

French is one of the world’s most influential languages, and is reputed to be the foreign language which is most widely used in international communications, after English. Besides being spoken in France, it is one of the official languages of Belgium, of Switzerland, and of Canada; it is the official language of Haiti, of more than 15 African countries, and of various French overseas dependencies. In addition, French is the unofficial second language of a number of countries, including Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, and Syria. Almost 300 million people speak French as their native language or as a second language.

Today it is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

Being largely derived from Latin (with the addition of modern vocabulary from English) the French language has a lot fewer words than the English language (which is derived from both Old French and old forms of German).

In Hong Kong, French is a very popular choice for learning as a second language. In many secondary schools (International/Local) French is being taught as a foreign language. For the the youngest language learners French has been introduced at several primary schools as well. For adult learners French remains the first choice for Hong-kongers to study.
