Middle School French Students Learn about African Career Opportunity

Written by on . Posted in *District News, MS News

In April, Middle School French students learned about an interesting career opportunity on the continent with 6 of the top 10 largest French speaking cities in the world: Africa (TouristMaker, 2018). Ms. Kate McMahon spoke to students about her experience serving with the Peace Corps in Senegal. Students were able to see Senegalese clothing, hear Senegalese music, and explore Senegalese food and culture. Currently, Africa accounts for 55% of native French speakers in the world (International Organization of Francophonie, 2014), and largely due to its growth, some economists believe French could be the most widely spoken language globally by 2050 (P. Gobry, Forbes, 2014). French is already spoken by 274 million people (International Organization of Francophonie, 2014) and is projected to be the most-spoken language in Europe by 2025 (Cook, 2018).
