You should learn French for work

French belongs to the family of Romance Languages. French as we speak it to-day, evolved slowly and is a rich mix of many ethnic and linguistic groups including Greek; Roman (this is where the ‘romance’ comes from). Celt; Frank and other Germanic tribes and of course, Arab. The name, France, comes from the name of the Germanic tribe, the Franks, who entered France during late antiquity and gradually became the dominant people. They adopted the late form of Latin – Vulgar Latin - being spoken throughout the country at the time. Naturally, they added many of their own words or modified some of the Latin forms to resemble their own more closely.
