French remains one of the most popular languages in the world spoken by more than 220 million people across the globe. French is one of the official languages in several countries including Canada, Belgium and Senegal.

If you are already fluent in speaking English, learning French can be fairly easy due to the sheer number of words derived from the French vocabulary. For example, did you know that approximately 3 out of every 10 English words are thought to have French origins? These include 'souvenir', 'bouquet' and 'omelette'.
