French is spoken by 220 million people across all 5 continents
French is the official language of France, but it’s also spoken in Monaco, Luxembourg, some parts of Belgium and Switzerland, the Canadian province of Québec, parts of North and Central Africa, Vietnam, Cambodia, Madagascar and the French Overseas Departments and Territories. Now that’s a well-travelled language!
French is also one of only six official languages at the UN.
Quelle surprise! The English language is 30% French
An estimated 30% of English words are borrowed from French, making it and Latin the most influential languages in the English vocabulary. Most French words look the same and have the same meaning, such as ‘banana’/’banane’ and ‘tiger’/tigre’, but others are misleading. Linguists call these ‘false cognates’or‘faux amis’, words that look similar but differ in meaning, like ‘actuellement’ and‘actually’(‘actuellement’ means “at the present time” and should be translated as ‘currently’ or ‘right now’, whereas ‘actually’ means “in fact” and should be translated as ‘en fait’ or ‘à vrai dire’. Look through any English article or piece of writing and you’re bound to across some borrowings from French, from the world of food (‘biscuit’, ‘menu’) to the military (‘camouflage’, ‘coup d’Etat’), from diplomacy (‘diplomat’, ‘regime’) to entertainment (‘ballet’, ‘sport’). Want to avoid any linguistic faux pas?
