Is it worthwhile to learn French?
1 years ago
French is the 5th most commonly spoken language, with about 280 million first (L1) and second (L2) language speakers. It would therefore be useful in France as well as in former French colonies where it is often spoken as a first or second language. French is also the traditional language of diplomacy, and would be helpful if you wanted to work either in the EU or the UN. Whether it is worthwhile for you depends on what you hope to use the language for. Since it is widely spoken it could be useful for you, although it has far fewer L1 and L2 speakers than English and Spanish.
