7 Why French?? A Practical Foreign Language French continues to be influential throughout the world. As a foreign language it is the second most frequently taught language in the world after English. It is spoken as an official language in 33 countries and is the only language other than English spoken on five continents. An article by George Weber titled “The World’s 10 most influential languages” presents a formula for calculating language influence. The author states that “despite a clear downward trend relative to English, French remains the world's second most influential language.” Reference for article:
