With Bastille Day taking place on July 14th, it’s only fitting that July is French Language Month at IEO!
Behind English, French is the second most widely-learned foreign language, and while its ranking amongst the world’s most widely-spoken languages is not entirely clear, its far-reaching presence is undeniable. Belgium, Benin, Cameroon, Canada, France, Haiti, Lebanon, Madagascar, Switzerland, and Togo are just some of the countries where it is spoken. Despite its ranking today, with the growing population of French speakers in Sub-Saharan Africa, some speculate that French’s prevalence will increase dramatically in the coming decades, perhaps making it the world’s number one language in terms of the amount of its speakers.
