French as lingua franca in higher circles
French is derived from Latin and is one of the Romance languages.
63 million people have French as their first language in France itself; elsewhere there are 7.7 million in Canada, principally in Quebec, 4.2 million in Belgium and 1.8 million people in Switzerland.
French has been an important language for England's ruling elite for centuries, since 1066, and the same is true elsewhere.
Above all in the 17th century, in Russia, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and many regions spread throughout the world, French was spoken and it became the common language of the social elite, the lingua franca of the higher circles.
As a result of French colonialism French is still used by approximately 50 million people as their second language. Above all in Africa and South-East Asia people regard French as a language of culture, and in many African countries French is the only official language.
French can also be described as a language of immigrants.
French is still an important language within diplomatic circles. For instance it is still the most important international language and the official language of the United Nations and the European Union.
French grammar and dictionaries
The formalisation of French grammar and the production of French dictionaries began in 1539, which was when the use of French became compulsory within France's national centre of government, which had already been located in Paris for a thousand years. In 1635, during the Golden Age, with the establishment of the Académie Francaise the standardisation of French became a matter of state policy.
French as a second language in the Netherlands
From 1810 to 1813 the Netherlands was part of the French Empire. Until well into the 20th century French was regarded within education as a more important second language than English. We still use French words and expressions to this day, for example accent, allure, après-ski, femme fatale, moment suprême, succes, chauffeur, ambassade and s’il vous plaît (s.v.p.).
International contact and cooperation
French is spoken close by, just over the border in Belgium, Luxembourg, and then in France and Switzerland.
Our international trade and industry frequently calls for French speakers, in addition to English speakers. French is used within import, mainly from Southern European and African countries. French is extremely important in international contact and cooperation.
The ability to speak French affords access to other cultures and societies. This leads to social contact and mutual understanding.
