About the French language

French is spoken by about 350 million people. It is an official language in 29 countries and commonly used in many others. French has lost most of its international significance to English with the rise of the USA as the dominant global power. Nevertheless, French is the second most-studied foreign language in the world after English. Did you know that more than a third of all English words are derived directly or indirectly from French? So the chances are English speakers who have never studied French probably know 15,000 French words already!
