Does anyone know why French language and culture in particular is taught at schools, as if it's supposed to be better than English or something? Do they expect us to use it later on in life? I'd understand if they taught the language of a Commonwealth country (IE Burmese, Nepalese etc). The other week, I looked at Thai, Indonesian etc. and found them easier to pronounce, as French has to be spoken in a particular way which I find harder. Many countries also have had problems adapting to French language. The only advantage I find with French language is for those intending to join the Legion, that's it.
