French in New York
Why learn French in New York City? – New York City is one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the world. Nicknamed “The Melting Pot,” it is home to over 800 languages! French, as the 4th most spoken language in the U.S., is one of the most influential. As reported in 2017, over 184,000 French speakers in New York City form a vibrant “Little France” in the Carroll Gardens of Brooklyn. With its village-like ambiance, and little cafés and shops, the recent influx of French immigration to Brooklyn adds to an authentic French community. Taking French classes in New York is the perfect way to better appreciate a fascinating culture right at your doorstep.
New York has more French culture than you would expect, and definitely more than just the Washington Square Park Arch, though its design was based on the Arc de Triomphe. Of course, the Met has some of the greatest French artists among its seemingly infinite treasures, but a true spot for French culture in New York is Albertine Books on the Upper East Side. This is one of the best French language bookstores in the United States, and the perfect place to pick up a book to practice reading in French. If you are looking for a bit more relaxing taste of French culture, head over to Manhattan’s Bryant Park and try out your Petanque skills.
As the city which is home to the Headquarters of the UN, New York City is central to international diplomacy and in our current society, establishing strong international relations is more important than ever. Currently, the EU is the largest trading partner of the U.S., with over $735 billion exchanged in 2017, surpassing even China. French, the 3rd most widely known language in the EU, is a valuable asset which can elevate businesses and take them to an international level. By taking French lessons in New York you will be able to fully take advantage of the city’s diverse opportunities, and put yourself in a position to be a true asset to any company that deals in the EU or in the francophone world.
With the U.S.’ increasingly competitive job markets, bilingualism is the key to enhancing employability. MIT economist Albert Saiz estimates that bilingual college graduates in 2018 will earn up to 2% higher than average, adding up to $67,000 more savings at retirement. Considering that only 1 in 5 Americans claim to be truly bilingual, learning a second language will give you an edge which the majority will lack. French, as an official language in over 29 countries, is one of the most sought after languages in all professional sectors, as well as one of the most accessible for an English speaker. Studying French will open doors to new careers and possibilities in the US and beyond, allowing you to travel and venture further than ever before.
