Characteristics of the French language

French is the most studied language in the world after English. Not only is it spoken in 5 continents, it is the official language, alongside English, in organisations such as the UN, NATO, UNESCO and the Red Cross. The economic importance of this language is shown, for example, in trade the relations between Canada and the United States. Consequently, it requires a significant amount of communication between French speakers and other languages.

A little known fact is that France is the European Union country where more languages are spoken: French, Breton, Occitan throughout the central and southern part (about 2 million speakers and 10 who understand it), Corsican, Catalan and Basque. It is estimated that nowadays there are about 220 million people with French as their mother tongue and over 300 million who have French as a second or common language, particularly in Africa.

Short history of the French language

The French language began to be formed in the sixteenth century with the invasion of Charlemagne on Frank and Gallic territory.

The modern history of the French language in France begins in the North of modern France, as Central and Southern parts spoke a combination of Provençal (Lange d’Oc, what we nowadays refer as “Occitan”), one of the descendants of Latin. Modern French is part of the family of languages called “Romance.”

The origin of Romance Languages came from a general interpretation of the Latin that had spread through most of Western Europe due to the widespread settlements of the conquering Roman legions and settlers from other parts of the Roman Empire.
