At UWM’s School of Continuing Education, you can discover this beautiful language while learning to communicate with French speakers. More than 190 million people around the world speak it as a second language. So whether you’re traveling or want to open the door on business opportunities, learning French is a great choice.

French is the official language in 29 countries: Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Canada, Chad, the Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, France, Haiti, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Monaco, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Switzerland, Togo and Vanuatu.
