Why French language?

The French language is an interesting language, with similarities and differences from English. French is an Indo-European language from the Latin branch. This means that these languages tend to have a higher percentage of lexical similarity Worldwide, there are more than 150, 000, 000 French language speakers. The majority of speakers live in France where 51, 000, 000 speak French as their native language. However, France is not the only country that recognizes French as their official language.
