Think you know the ins and outs of French grammar? French may be known as the language of love, but it is actually a Romance language. This means that it is one of the languages, like Spanish, Portuguese and Italian that is a descendant of Latin. Latin was spoken by the Ancient Romans, which is why it is a Romance language. French is a tricky language to get a handle on, especially for English speakers, because it has a lot of elements that make it very different from English. From all of the accents, to the different pronunciations of letters, to the structure of sentences, French grammar can be a tricky thing to master.
For a long time, French was the international language of business, and while it isn't any longer, it is still one of the most spoken languages in Europe and spoken by more than 70 million people around the world. It's spoken in about 60 countries and is the official language in 29. You can hear French in Europe, Canada and Africa.
