French, along with Italian, Spanish and Portuguese form the Romance language family. French is justifiably regarded as a beautiful language very suitable for poetry and romance. Like English, there are more French speakers outside France than in France. French is spoken in dozens of countries in Africa. It is also spoken in Canada and Haiti. French as spoken “properly” is quite different from the French spoken in Congo or Rwanda or Vietnam. The acceptance of these accents and pronunciation is important for the continued growth of French.
For speakers of other romance languages and speakers of English developing vocabulary is easy as many words are similar. Even though the written aspect of verb conjugation seems very difficult often pronunciation is simple as many conjugations that look different when written are pronounced the same.
