French in Birmingham

Why learn French in Birmingham? – The United Kingdom’s second largest city of Birmingham is one of the most culturally mixed cities in the UK, with French influences that include cuisine and art found in the city. There are popular restaurants such as Cote Brasserie, Cafe Rouge, and Bistrote Pierre serving up delicious French cuisine, or a French-themed guided art tour, which ties together French artists and themes featured throughout the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. In addition, there are about 3,000 French people that reside in the West Midlands, according to the 2011 United Kingdom census. With a total of 1,486 French expats calling Birmingham home, the city boasts more than any other city in the West Midlands.


Birmingham also has an extensive international commercial sector, that is partly fueled by commerce between the United Kingdom and France. According to the French government’s Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, there were a total of 31 billion in exports and 28 billion in imports between the United Kingdom and France in 2017, which makes the United Kingdom France’s 6th largest customer. Also, with French being the third-most widely spoken language in the European Union, it is often considered to be a key language for conducting international business. International companies such as Specialist Computer Centres (SCC), which is Europe's largest independent Information Technology services business, are headquartered in Birmingham and have offices across France. Learning French in Birmingham could potentially boost earning power and bring career advancing benefits for those working in the UK’s second biggest city’s bustling international commercial sector.

If you have some concerns about your ability to learn another language, rest assured that French is considered to be fairly easy for native English speakers to learn as second language. The English language has many French words and other words that are closely related to French. Some English words that are of French origin include parlor (parler), mansion (manoir), beauty (beauté), governor (gouverneur), servant (serviteur), traitor (traitre), banquet (banquet), tribunal (tribunal), castle (chateau), crown (couronne), and romance (romance).

The French language is currently spoken in 29 countries, and over the next several decades the number of French speakers worldwide is expected to grow. By taking the leap to become fluent in French, you will join millions of French speakers worldwide!
