Learn How to Speak French in London

Get Started and Learn French

Ethnologue states that French is the fifth most-spoken language in the world, with more than 300 million people who speak it across five continents. According to the French consulate in London, more than 300,000 of these speakers live in the city. Traditionally, the UK and France have been ‘historic rivals’, but today their relationship is far more cordial. For example, France is the UK’s third-largest trading partner, importing $23.7 billion worth of shipments in 2020, according to the Office for National Statistics. With so many cultural and professional opportunities available in London, learning a foreign language like French will open up new and exciting possibilities, both in the city and on the global stage. Taking French courses in London is the perfect way to learn and apply a skill which will benefit both your career and your personal life, and will allow you to participate in French cultural events on a deeper level. Just get in contact with us and start taking French lessons today!

Why Study French in London

Learn French for Work: Knowing French will boost your marketability among employers considerably, with a 2020 study by The Economist estimating that the average financial benefit of a second language rests at about $77,000 over a 40-year career. So, if you would like to connect with French-speaking entrepreneurs, it is a great idea to get in touch with the French Chamber of Commerce of Great Britain on High Holborn. This institution tries to provide a platform for networking between Franco-British firms in the UK and potential partners and employees, so take advantage of this opportunity to connect with international businesses and put your French to use! Also, French can come in handy if you are planning to travel. With over 220 million French speakers in total, according to the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, knowing the language will help you make the most out of your trips to countries far beyond just France, such as Canada, Switzerland, Senegal and Belgium.

Learn French for Culture: Opportunities to experience French culture in London are plentiful! For example, many restaurants and bars in London have chosen to embrace Bastille Day and celebrate this annual event, such as Comptoir Gascon on Charterhouse St, or Morton’s Mayfair overlooking Berkeley Square, which organises a cocktail party with tricolour dress code for the occasion. Taking French lessons in London will bring you closer to a culture whose literature, art, music and dining have contributed greatly to humanity’s heritage, and will open the door to more new and exciting experiences. And if you are a cinema lover, you can attend an annual festival that runs from November to the beginning of December, organised by French Film Festival UK, an association founded in 1992. This event features many classic and contemporary films of French origin in their original language, so say goodbye to English subtitles and test your newly-acquired French listening skills!

Learn French for Social: If you are looking to make some new friends with a passion for the French language and culture, you can join the very popular London French Meetup group, the biggest group of French speakers of all ages and nationalities in London. They hold regular events to get together, talk in French and share their interests in French culture whilst having a good time. After your meetings, you can go and sample some authentic French gastronomy, which has been part of the UNESCO list for ‘intangible cultural heritage’ since 2010. For example, you can go to Aubaine on Brompton Road, where you can order pain aux pistaches or delicious crème fraîche with the French vocabulary and pronunciation you learn in your lessons with Language Trainers!
