French in Dallas
Dallas is the thriving city we know today thanks, in part, to the French-founded utopian settlement La Réunion. Victor Considérant established the colony near Dallas in 1855, and you can still see its distinct contributions to the area – former La Réunion residents helped create the Wilson Block, the now-historic development known for its Victorian architecture. In addition to these architectural contributions, there are more than 10,000 French speakers living in Dallas, according to the 2013 American Community Survey. This means that learning French here will be an asset when it comes to finding a bilingual job, meeting new friends and making the most out of your future visits to France!
Why Study French in Dallas
For Work: You’re probably already aware that Dallas, with its population of 1.3 million and international reach, is truly a global city. According to the FAA, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport was the fourth-busiest American airport in 2018, and the Dallas area is a hub for national and world travel. Many foreign companies have already set up corporate headquarters in Dallas, including France-based Essilor, Schneider Electric, and Airbus. The city’s commitment to accessibility and innovation, including its plans for high-speed rail, will continue to bring in international business. And knowing French, an official language of 29 countries, will make you an indispensable part of the diverse Dallas workforce. Taking French lessons in Dallas will really give you an advantage over other candidates! And if you are looking to connect with fellow French entrepreneurs, you can always contact the French American Chamber of Commerce Dallas Fort Worth on N Central Expy, an institution that aims to promote a better understanding between Dallas and France, and to provide information on the economic situation of both places.
For Culture: Modern-day Dallas is an exciting place to be an aspiring Francophone with an interest in French culture. The Oak Cliff neighborhood has its annual festival celebrating Bastille Day, which in 2019 attracted thousands of visitors! It has its own Mardi Gras parade, a stunning spring festival that includes live performances, traditional French food and music. You can also check out the works of well-known French artists like Monet, Gauguin and Renoir at the Dallas Museum of Art on Hardwood St. Some of their guided tours inside the museum are in French, so by taking advantage of our language classes in Dallas, you will be able to enjoy all the French culture the city has to offer!
For Social: Those more interested in meeting new people and putting their French skills into use can join one of the many MeetUp groups available in Dallas. The most popular of them is the Dallas French Conversation Group, with almost 2,000 members. They meet every other Saturday at Cafe Express in Mockingbird Station and they welcome anyone who wants to practice their French in a relaxed atmosphere. Or, if you want to have some traditional French food while having fun with friends, you will be pleased to know that the city’s dining scene includes authentic French cuisine, like Chef Jean-Marie Cadot’s classic fare at Cadot Restaurant on Preston Rd. This place offers a lot of delicious French dishes such as Duck Confit, Baby Arugula Fricassee of Mushroom and Grand Manier Baba. Impress your friends by ordering food with the French pronunciation you learn with Language Trainers!
