Did you know that over 200 million people speak French on 5 continents? That the community of French-speaking countries (la Francophonie) includes 70 states and governments? And that French is the foreign language most commonly learned after English and the 9th most spoken language in the world? It is also the only language, along with English, that you can learn in all the countries of the world.

YOU DON’T KNOW IF YOUR CHILD IS FRANCOPHONE OR ANGLOPHONE ?

EASY FRENCH

French is also the only language, along with English, that you can learn in all the countries of the world. However, learning French is also, and especially, working on one’s plurilingual and pluricultural skills.

It means acquiring multiple forms of knowledge. For example, bilingual children have a better comprehension of mathematical and logical concepts and a better aptitude for problem solving (Zelasko Antunez, 2000). They also have more perspective and reflection on their learning (Castro 2011), on the concept of otherness in general, and are more apt to learn other languages (Jessner 2008).

Yet, we often hear that French is a difficult language to learn. Is that really so? Are there languages that are easier or more difficult to learn than others? In reality, there is no easy or difficult language. This is a totally subjective assessment. In the long term, motivation and regular practice make the difference. At EFBA, our teaching staff is committed to using all the available resources to support your child’s motivation to learn.
