Dec 20 2017, 1:22 am

Summer is almost over and it’s back to the daily grind, which makes it the perfect time to add a little je ne sais quoi to your life by studying French this fall.

Not convinced? Consider these five reasons to French up your life this fall:

Reason 1

Bradley Cooper speaks French, and if you did, too, just think of what could happen if you randomly bumped into him.

Reason 2

Salaries in Canada are on average 10% higher for bilingual workers. Ka-ching!

Reason 3

Learning a new language actually increases gray matter: it will make you smarter!

Reason 4

20,000 English words have their origin in French – so it’ll be easy, we promise!

Reason 5

Everything sounds better (and sexier) in French, non?
