French Language Miscellaneous Facts

One of the six top official languages in the European Union, French is spoken by about 151 million people in over 51 territories, countries or provinces in the world as a native language. French is widely present on the global business market. In fact, 41 countries include French as their official language and today it is the second language most frequently taught in educational facilities. Although the French language has evolved over the years and varies from country to country, the original French language is easily understood by the majority of the Francophones (people who speak French).

The French language is actually the only language besides English to be present on five continents. Worldwide, about 49.7 million people access the Internet in French.

In addition, French is the official working language in key international organizations such as, The Red Cross, The Olympic Games, The United Nations and all its agencies, NATO, the World Trade Organization, the Universal Postal Union, etc. If going global is the target, it is plain to see that the French language or Francophone market cannot be ignored.
