Did you know that

the French language is the only language other than English spoken on five continents? According to La Francophonie dans le monde 2006-2007 there are:

  • 128 million Francophones - who speak French (as a native or adopted language) fluently and use it on a regular basis.
  • 72 million "partiel" Francophones - who live in a francophone country but do not speak French regularly, due to limited knowledge.
  • 100-110 million students of all ages - who do not live in a francophone country, but have learned/are learning French in order to communicate with francophones.

It is an official language in 29 countries and has an important presence in more than 54 countries.

French as a foreign language is the second most frequently taught language in the world after English, the 3rd most frequently spoken non-English language in the US and the official working language in dozens of international organizations, including the United Nations, the International Olympic Committee, and the International Red Cross.

France is not only is the most visited country by tourists in the world but is considered to be the world's fifth largest economy, and in 2006 was the second largest destination of foreign investment.

France and the UK are major economic and trade partners: France is the UK's third largest export market (the second largest in Europe) and the UK's third largest supplier. Exports to France in 2004 reached almost £19 billion, accounting for 10% of total UK visible exports.
