French and Italian are very similar, so one of the reasons why you can choose to learn French is purely utilitarian. As both Romance languages, in fact, many words and grammatical constructions are the same or very similar.
Among the very valid reasons for learning French, we also find the fact that it is one of the official languages of international relations, along with Chinese, Russian, English, Arabic and Spanish.
French is also spoken in many countries around the world, such as Canada, Belgium, Switzerland and parts of Africa.
