The Centre has taken an initiative in the interest of the students to fully sponsor the online course in the form of granting 100% scholarship to the eligible students.

WHY LEARN FRENCH?

As the world is moving towards the concept of Global Village, it becomes imperative to learn a language which has a global significance. In this age, networking is an essential skill/practice in every discipline. Earlier it was used as a strategy/or an effective tool in some sectors like management, social science and IT sector etc. But today international networking is directly related to increased market competition and sustainability. Foreign language competences are among the crucial aspects for economic development, achievement, maintaining and expanding foreign trade in any sector. It is a perfect tool to prosper individually as well as institutionally and therefore contribute to the nation’s development.

SCOPE:

  • With over 30 French-speaking countries, it is a language spoken by about 300 million; both native and non-native speakers. It is the official language used by 29 countries of the world, cutting across five continents. French is the second most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union, after German and
    English. The varieties of a French-language spoken by an estimated 120 million people in Africa spread across 24 francophone African countries. French is one of the few languages taught in every nation of the world and is among the most widely used languages of the United Nations Organization (UN), the African Union, and other organizations.
  • There is an ever growing job oppurtunities in French which has become the most popular choice among students. Most of the companies operating in the aeronautic, automotive, banking and finance, hotel management, international trade, journalism and media, education, luxury goods, and retailing sectors demand French as a prerequisite for recruitment.
  • French as a foreign language also boosts international information, helps in immigration to France, Canada and other Francophone countries. It also helps to access to rich culture, music. And it is the third most popular destination for international students.
  • French can also be describe as “the bridge-building” language. Moreover, if you know French, you will open a whole new and existing world of knowledge as it is widespread in more than 56 countries in Africa, Europe, and other parts of the world.

Keeping that in mind the Centre, has taken this initiative to create awareness as well as to enrich and empower the students with a language which is internationally relevant.
