WHY FRENCH

The French Embassy is committed to supporting French language education for the benefit of children and students across the United States.

Proficiency in more than one language  not only offers countless academic advantages, but also expands opportunities for personal and professional success. Children learning a foreign language gain exceptional skills in communication, intercultural competency, and intellectual curiosity which they will use for the rest of their lives. 

The Embassy works with partner organizations to facilitate the learning of French for as many young learners in as many regions as possible.
