English and French - Two world languages

French has always been one of the most popular languages for British speakers to learn, and it's no surprise when you consider the long and rewarding relationship that our two neighbouring countries have enjoyed over the centuries. Historically friends and rivals in equal measure, the English and French share a wonderful connection that is only enhanced when shared language skills are brought into the mix. Whether you aspire to learn French for business, pleasure, travel, your social life - perhaps even your love life - there are plenty of ways to forge ahead with your new language skills. But do you try to learn French free, or do you opt for a paid learning course? Let's take a closer look.
