French language evening courses in Wrexham

French is the international language of dance, architecture, the visual arts, theatre, fashion and haute cuisine. It’s spoken by over 200 million people, making it the ninth most spoken language in the world. Right now, approximately 750,000 people are learning it. If you can read it, you’ll be able to dip into the original works of such luminaries as Jean-Paul Sartre, Molière and Michel Foucault, and admire the words of Edith Piaf’s belting choruses. It’s a language of diplomacy and sophistication, and an official language of multiple institutions, from the United Nations to the European Union and the International Red Cross. A knowledge of French doesn’t only give you access to all of this, but also to countries such as Canada, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Belgium, where French is also an official language and if you’re keen on warmer climes for your vacations, consider also that there are many countries in Africa and the Caribbean where French is spoken, including Madagascar, Morocco, Tunisia and the Seychelles. If you’re looking to learn a language, French is a great choice.
