Learn French to boost your career!

A diplomatic language

The prestige of the French language is due, among other things, to its presence as an official language within the United Nations and international governmental organizations such as NATO, the European Union, the International Court of Justice, the International Olympic Committee, the African Union and of course the International Organization of La Francophonie.

Learning French can therefore make it easier to access prestigious professions with high responsibility in the field of diplomacy, finance, economics, or even international security.

According to the International Organization of La Francophonie, French will have more than 300 million speakers in 2023, making it the fifth most spoken language on a global scale. Present in more than 50 countries, French language allows international students who have mastered it to seek employment in a job market that spans five continents.

A language spoken in several professional sectors

Thanks to this diplomatic and demographic weight, the French language is of crucial importance in the context of international exchanges, with many companies looking for bilingual or polyglot profiles able to work in a French-speaking professional world.

In 2023, French will remain a language associated with various culture-related sectors whether it’s the film industry, literature or music, thus allowing students who master French to access these areas with greater ease.

One should also consider the importance of tourism since France remains the first destination for tourists coming from all across the world. Since tourism is a strong and dynamic sector, learning French is once again a strategic asset for international students looking for professional opportunities.

French language and digital economy

The international organization of the Francophonie has set itself the task of developing economic and digital cooperation within its members, through the implementation of an economic strategy for the Francophonie 2020–2025 and the strategy of “digital Francophonie”.

In order to encourage the development of digital technologies and professional activities, the Direction of Economic and Digital Francophonie is carrying out several actions intended to intensify trade and investment, and to stimulate innovation, entrepreneurship as well as professional integration. For international students, learning French opens new doors in the field of digital economy and artificial intelligence, which are considered essential today.
