Business French is a section of French for specific purposes and can be considered a specialism within French language teaching and learning, or a variant of international French. Many non-native French speakers examine the subject with the goal of doing business with French-speaking countries, or with companies located outside the French-speaking world but which nonetheless use French as a common language. French communication that takes place within the business circles all over the globe occurs between non-native French speakers. In such cases, the object of the exercise is efficient and effective French communication.

The strict rules of French grammar are sometimes ignored. For example, a skilled negotiator’s only goal is to reach an agreement as soon as possible.  Business French may be different things to different people. For some, it focuses on French vocabulary and topics used in the worlds of business, trade, finance, and international relations. For others, it refers to the French communication skills used in a business setting and focuses on the French language and skills needed for typical business communication such as negotiation, presentations, meetings, socialising, small talk, correspondence, report writing, and a systematic approach.

Course Benefits

Below is the list of course benefits of our Business French course

  • Being fluent in business French will you an advantage over non French speaking candidates in job interviews that requires you to speak French. These opportunities exist in all French speaking organisations and departments which range from marketing through procurement. A lot of organisations require employees to speaking French either as a first or second language.
  • With globalisation, the need for business professionals who can communicate in French is growing.
  • Corporate professionals who learn a foreign language such as French demand a higher salary as compared to those who do not speak French. A major, recruitment business stated that knowing a foreign language, such as French, can add between 10% to 15% of one’s salary.
  • Being able to speak a foreign language like French does not restrict you in going overseas to do business given that you know the language (Business French) of the country (French) you are heading to well. Little companies need multilingual employees, that can speak French, who can help them search new business opportunities in foreign French speaking countries.
  • You don’t need to be fluent in French and sometimes merely being proficient in French is enough as businesses want to hire translators to take care of their French communications. However, they still require experienced managers and representatives to meet and greet their clients in business French and operate as the French speaking face of the organisation in international markets.
  • Having the ability to speak French allows you to relate to different French speaking cultural groups in a personal manner. Talking to anyone in their language, in this case, French breaks down barriers and enable them to feel more comfortable and trusting. This type of relationship is necessary for a business setting. Knowing your client’s native language, in this case, French will elevate their professional and business relationship which can lead to more significant business results.
  • Many would argue that knowing French is becoming a progressively vital and necessary skill for anyone who wants to keep up with today’s fast-growing economy. As more individuals understand the value of learning business French, those who do not speak French will begin to get left behind in the transformation towards a more French speaking multicultural community.
  • Acquiring a second language, such as business French develops your memory and improves your attention span. The process of becoming bilingual, in this case learning business French, sharpens your brain, challenges you to focus and boosts your problem-solving skills. So start learning Business French today!
  • Confidence grows when a new skill is mastered, and learning a foreign language such as business French is no different. It builds your self-confidence. To study business French, conversations with native and fluent French speakers are required. If you’re bashful but want to meet new people, using the excuse that you want to practice your French speaking skills is a great opener and a doorway to making new acquaintance, extending your horizons and expanding your life experiences.
  • Another reason why learning business French is beneficial is that you quickly and efficiently set yourself apart from anyone else in the workplace, where having employees whose first language isn’t French is common.

  • We Understand The Industry: We’ve got a profound comprehension of the business, business design, challenges, strategy and the that our participants are in and have designed the courseware to cater to their professional needs.

  • Course Content: Knowles Training Institute’s material is relevant, of high quality and provide specific learning results. Participants will leave the training course feeling as they have gained a strong understanding and will also be in a position to execute what they have learned sensibly.

  • Course Development — The workshop modules follow a systematic and logical arrangement. This structure helps to ensure that the course material allows the facilitators to deliver the course in a logical arrangement.
