Main Languages Spoken in France
What languages should an international student learn before arriving to France to study at the university they sent admissions to? The main language in France is French. Which is also referred to as French. Other languages include German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. With one official language spoken throughout the country, there are many other languages spoken as well. However, the main language will be the best bet for an international student to learn so they can navigate France well enough without any trouble when it comes to not understanding what someone else is trying to say.
Students will more than likely be tested on their French skills before arriving in France to study.
