How to Learn French as a Second Language

The French language is beautiful, as is French culture and French literature. Those that have enjoyed learning French in the past know how satisfying it can be to integrate the language into your everyday life, and students the world over continue to improve their French skills, whether the reason is personal or professional.

However, not everyone is a lifelong student or has time to take language courses for years to make a second language a larger part of their daily lives. Some people are busy, and some are  learning French for purely professional reasons. 

Learning the French Language in Canada

A strong command of both official languages is a great feather in your cap whether you’re a Canadian from Vancouver, Ontario, or Quebec. It also opens doors for you in the work world.

For example, learning the language is a crucial skill for those that work or provide services in areas where French is predominant, such as Ottawa, Gatineau, Montreal, and other major cities. In fact, if you don’t speak French and live in those locations, taking a French language program or online course is practically a necessity.

French programs are also required to advance to managerial and executive positions in the Canadian public service. Not only will learning French expand your horizons, it will help you take your career to new heights. Did you know that more than half of managerial and director-level positions in the Canadian government require a minimum language assessment of BBB?  

(For those that don’t know, language proficiency assessments are graded from beginner to advanced, with an A-level assessment being the lowest level and C-level assessments being the highest.)
