Why? Because knowledge of this language opens the door to the hearts of its users and to business, and because France is an important world economic power, has excellent research opportunities and receives many international students every year. Study French and you have many options to spend part of your studies in the country of the Gallic Rooster and gain experience abroad. France is also a world tourist destination. French is not only spoken in France, but in many more countries, e.g., Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Canada, French Polynesia and several African countries. Every country = a different world.
