French Language Learning

Overview

French, or le français, is the national language of France, of course, and an official language in 29 other countries, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, and Madagascar.

Neat fact: The largest French-speaking country is actually the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where French is the only official language and which has about 15 million more people than France!
