French - The language of our neighbours

The French language also enjoys a large international reputation and is considered part of the world languages. More than 350 million people speak French across the globe. Therefore, it is impossible to think of diplomacy and international organisations without the French language where it plays a crucial role in the exchange of communication.  

Moreover, in the age of globalisation the job market is becoming increasingly international and therefore it is advisable to have, apart from English, a command of further important languages such as French to stay competitive on the job market. In addition, France is among the most important trade partners of Germany, both in export and import. At embassies as well as at Foreign Offices knowledge of French is frequently expected as one of the working languages.

Last but not least, the French language makes French culture accessible. France has a unique cultural heritage like French literature, art, music and philosophy and continues to enchant more admirers of France.

You can choose to learn French as an elective or compulsory as part of various foreign language training courses.
