Facts about the Canadian French language:

The French language is one of the languages in the Indo-European family. Also commonly known as a romance language, French descended from Latin. The language traces its roots back to Gaul. It evolved from the Latin spoken in Gaul, the northern parts of Gaul to be specific. Some of the languages which are closest to French include those which were spoken in the southern parts of Belgium and northern France.

Even though French evolved from Gallo Romance, it also has influences from other languages, such as Celtic languages. Furthermore, the language has evolved to create creole languages. This development can be attributed to France's expansion in overseas countries. One of the most popular creole languages is Haitian Creole.

French has grown to become a commonly-used language in many countries. 29 countries in the world use French as their official language. In total, about 84 countries use French for official purposes or teach it. Most of these countries also happen to be members of OIF, otherwise known as the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie.

French is native to several countries, but many non-French speakers study it as a professional requirement or for fun. According to statistics, French is the third most spoken language in the world after English and Mandarin. Organizations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross and the United Nations also use French as a primary or secondary language. Many secondary schools and universities in many countries also offer French as a course.
