French as a language is an extraordinarily valuable language in its own right, opening students up to cultures of the Caribbean, Africa and Southeast Asia.

A Lycée education is about much more than learning in French, however. Our experience is that the ability to speak a second language makes it far easier to acquire a third, fourth and even fifth language, as students have already developed the confidence and executive function in their second language.

We can extend that further to include cultural competency. Fostering an openness to others early on fosters a flexibility in students they will carry throughout their lives, across many cultures of the world, yes, and also university, the workplace and even family life.
