J’adore Français!

French is known to be one of the most romantic languages in the world, not to mention one of the most popular. Let’s not forget where the language comes from, the land of cheese, bread, frog legs (what’s more romantic than frogs legs?) and of course stripy jumpers and berets! From Paris to Toulouse, France is the place where everyone has to go at least once in their lifetime. I’m also pretty sure that everyone knows at least one word in French (Bonjour?). If you want to learn more than one word, however, and live in the beautiful country that is France, then you should have a look at the language schools in France! Perhaps you’d like to study in the capital, Paris and sit in a bar enjoying the best French wine while you gasp in awe at the sight of the Eiffel Tower. Or maybe you’d prefer a more provincial French setting – there are certainly many places to choose from!

Putting the stereotypes aside, the French culture has so much more to offer than just cheese and wine. Studying French means not only can you speak the language of love, but you then also have the opportunity to travel to various other countries around the world and be able to speak to the locals.

One of my dreams, personally, is to explore France more and make the most of it, for example I would love to go to Bordeaux and have a wine tasting session, I also want to go to the Louvre and see the Mona Lisa, and last but not least, Strasbourg and Lyon, I’ve heard they’re some of the most beautiful places to visit in France.

Languages of the world

So as we know French isn’t the only language in the world, there are so many more from Arabic to Mandarin to English. Time for a business lesson: In this ever-globalizing and networking world, learning a new language can come in handy, you open doors you never even knew existed. At Nacel International you have the choice of which language you want to learn and you can travel to that country to get the full experience.

Let’s say hypothetically you want to learn Chinese, you could fly to China and live in a whole new cultural experience that differs completely from the rest of the world. My friend is currently in Beijing, and let’s just say she sticks out like a sore thumb, although height-wise she fits in perfectly she is a tiny little blonde girl with curly hair who dresses rather ‘loud’ compared to the typical Chinese style. Despite this, she is having the absolute time of her life and will most certainly be fluent in Chinese by the time she returns to the UK.

When you learn a language (this is where I chuck a bunch of cliché phrases at you), the world is your oyster, you can broaden your horizons and the possibilities are simply endless!

So if you want to study French in France, or any other language in any other country, there are plenty of language schools out there to help you realize your dreams and reach new linguistic heights!
