Why study French?
By taking French at GCSE you don’t just learn the language; you get to find out about other people, countries and cultures; making it an interesting and varied subject. Learning a language helps your memory, creativity, listening skills and self-confidence.
Many companies look for individuals who can speak more than one language, and using a language at work could raise your salary by between 8-20%.
